How did you take the a-arm off the ball Joint? After you took the nut off the top did it come right off? I didn't get that far....I just tried to get them out with it still attached..

hey guys! on the rear of my upper A-arms i noticed there is a lil bit of play as if the needle bearings are worn out or they just didnt put them in!? lol it only has 199 miles on it and 29 hours and has not been in the mud!! what in the world do you think it could be? i am carrying it to my dealer and let them look at it and hopefully is should be covered under the 12 month factory warranty!! i hope that is all it is and they will not give me the BS run around!!

if your uppers have play in them the bearings are going bad i have seen bikes with little to no riding on them at all with the upper a-arm bearings out.. and its not mudding that is the major cause of this its just rough terrain riding and in my case wheelies.. i would tell the shop if they cover it to make sure they grease the heck out of the bearings when they replace them... good luck if you do it yourself its honestly not that bad to do.. me and my buddy did mine in like 2hrs top and that was not knowing exactly how to do it now it would probably take us like 20 min a side tops...
