2004 TDM900.

Sorry but I can't find anything on the forum about this except grinding it out.

Some guys reckon a plastic wall plug or Rawlbolt works, but what's the "official" way - with a bearing puller?  All the other mounts slipped out dead easy.

BTW the top shock mounting's easy enough from unedr the bike, given the right tools.

Grinding out was only done in a few cases when the sleeve was siezed, mine being one of them, you wont get a puller in as the sleeve is right up against the blind hole end (albeit with a tiny hole there) so an appropriate sized rawl/anchor bolt or if it's free enough a plastic wall plug but if you have corrosion inside your gonna be grinding and i believe the sleeve is case hardened.... be careful wacking it from the blind side cos if it is siezed you may well end up breaking the aluminium..

 

Dunno what the official way is meant to be sorry..

 

Edit...you could fashion your own puller to maybe extract it out, into a larger size socket perhaps..

Does this mean the bush doesn't go all the way through, it stops short of the RH end of the mount, so you couldn't drift it out even if you wanted to?

(If so for God's sake why (need I ask!))?

Yep that's correct, it butts right up on the RH side, i suppose once it's off you could sort that as it's a stupid design, your's being a 2004 it might be stuck inside if it was'nt done at least annually or you might be lucky, it's a pig of a job and luckily i had a helping hand with mine, once sorted it just needs an annual grease up, gotta be done though.

 

Edit,, you may be able to drift it out from the RH side through the bolt hole BUT it's chancey, worse case replace the whole linkage and service annually.

 

It's chancey to drift because the linkage is fixed to the swing arm and if that cracks you'll be looking to replace the whole swing arm then.

Having done this particular job more than once, a liberal coating of plus gas or any graphited easing oil and application of heat from a heat gun will help. You can grind it out with a dremel type tool but you only have to release the part in the lefthand eye viewed from rear of bike. Be very careful not to go outside the diameter of the bush into the alloy as you can't put metal back.

Take it out every year after replace it. Rawl bolt and a tube and washer often works.

Annoyingly, the bush is case hardened in the hole as well or the normal method would be to tap a thread in it to draw on. Why it's not just a longer bush through two holes the same size is beyond me.
