    Tool box for R75/5 LWB

    I replaced my subframe with a later model one that was on hand. It doesn't have the brace that holds the tool box up in the back. Do the later models have a longer tool box and will it fit my /5 ?

    Grease

    So what do you suggest to grease the captive bearing? By hand or one of those needle like devices? Bum says you can do it by hand and do a good job. With the seal out of course.

    Pins face the same way.

    Both of my pins face the same way and if your not careful the seat slides off when you raise it, and it is a pain to put back on. I ordered the clips.
