Quality product
Super easy to grease the heim on the KTM. I give it a shot of grease about every other ride.

Tusk PDS Heim Joint Bolt Kit
if you have a KTM with the PDS rear, you NEED this! the lower heim joint bearing is subject to water contamination from deep water crossings, washing, etc... this little buddy allows you to blast grease in the bearing/housing and force all the water out. not to mention lubing up the bearing. its a no brainer really.

This is an excellent idea, and will eliminate the need to clean the shock bearing several times in the season

Good Zerk and Bushings
The fit of this bolt is perfect. No undue effort to get it on, but also no play in the fitment. Grease pumped into the zerk came out only on the outside of the metal bearing seal. Should keep this joint healthy for years.

Great addition to new Heim bearing
Boy was I ticked. Been a few years since I had to replace one of these heim bearings.. Started banging the old one out and it would not move. OH yea, there is a clip holding it in place.
After I removed that, it was a piece of cake. Then I used the Heim joint bolt kit so I can grease it better. What an upgrade.

Grease it or replace it!
So far so good, the grease keeps the water out of the joint which is the number one failure of the bearing. Easy assembly and I grease it every eight hours of riding with a good marine grade grease that is water resistant.

This is a great product and will double the life of the bearings if greased after every ride.

Super easy
Took maybe 5 minutes to install, far easier for future maintenance.
Perfect fit, half the price of competition.

Can this be used on the upper Shock joint also ?
Francis M on Sep 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not really, the bolt is the same upper & lower but the heim in the swingarm is not the same as the upper shock mount. Just use a stock bolt & wipe it down with grease before installing. This kit is meant to push the dirt & grit out of the swingarm heim with grease, it's not really a problem with the upper mount.
Is the nipple threaded in? Or pressed like the HT version that pops out.
A shopper on Mar 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The grease nipple threaded in with locktite. Will definitely not pop out.
Does this fit the 500 EXC-F?
