Thanks for replying , bolt doesnt show any wear at all but i will replace it , i just dont want any play in my suspension , i guess its my OCD .

does it still move when it is all torqued up?

my top rose joint had some play, and while i was waiting for a replacement i packed it with grease and it solved my issues. I sold the bike with a spare rose joint

I just finished assembling the bike ( i also changed sprockets , chain , rollers etc ) and now it doesn't make any noise when i lift the rear wheel and let it drop down , and with the bike on stand i move the swingarm and it doesn't sound like before so i guess it's good now though i didn't ride it yet .

Torque arm bolts need to be tightened at 81newtons according to the manual but i was afraid i might snap them so did them by feel .

Thanks again for the help
