I can't vouch for the BETD stuff on the newer LTS frames, but I had the full bearing upgrade kit on one of my old '96 Team LTS and it made a world of difference. I wouldn't be exaggerating if I said it completely transformed the bike.
Oh, and it got rid of the squeaks and the need for regular stripping and servicing too..!
The Horst link bearing is the one you need
Thanks for the info and the reassurances that it's what I need
I've just gone ahead and ordered two as well as the front and rear bushings and main bearing kit for post-'97 LTS models. I figured I might as well replace everything while I'm at it. I read somewhere that the BETD kits did not come with fitting instructions - can anyone confirm this please?
Apart from the squeak, the bike's in pretty good nick. I got it for $350 a couple of years ago from the original owner when I was living in Southern California and shipped it over to Copenhagen when we moved. It was in almost original condition (with slicks) and had been ridden back in the day at Big Bear. The owner also passed on to me a spare Coupe Deluxe shock and what's apparently a team-issue lower linkage. I'd always hankered after another after having my (pride & joy...) white DS2000 half-inched a decade ago when I was a student...
Thanks for the help gents - much appreciated!!
