    hi all.
    the brake side bushings in my dorado SC's is worn and ratteling, the non-brake one is fine just the disc side.
    now if i can get my hands on some bushings then can i replace them myself? is it relativly easy. i know how to service them and bleed them and whatnot but what about changing bushings?
    any help would be reccomended.
    cheers

    because id ever ever think of looking/asking there what with that thread being about dorados and me wanting to know about dorados i mean the thought never occcured to me.
    maybe im being overly pissy, maybe its because i aint had a cig today yet, maybe the worlds going to end in 13 and a half hours or maybe i just got REALLY wasted last night

    I'd call manitou and order the bushing removal and installation tool plus all the bushing replacements. There is a manual you can download too on their site on how to do it -thank god.

    are the tools expensive? if they are then id be better off just sending off the uppers and getting them to change the bushings
    can i use a marzocchi 30mm stanchion bushing removal/fitting tool?
