Rear pivot bushing on Ultrex

Rear pivot bushing on Ultrex - 04/20/21 01:15 AM

I have replaced 3 or 4 of the plastic pivot bushings on my 3 year old Ultrex. I love the Ultrex but need a remedy to fix problem. Has anyone else experienced these same problems? Any thoughts on how to stop it from happening. I've cleaned them and lubricated them and they still get chewed up and break. Thanks

Same here. It starts creeking and it’s time for new ones.

....just wait till it’s outta warranty and you get to change the steering sensor board! It’s super fun. Or cables.

lol, out of warranty..Replaced steering sensor last year. I'm trying something different this time on plastic bushings. I drilled a small hole and put a small screw into the plastic bushing to stop it from moving and see if that helps anything.
