Still have play in the upper mount of the rear shock. Is that normal on the Wee? From the parts diagram the bushing isn't able to be replaced. With the bike on the centerstand if I pull up on the swingarm there is some movement in the top shock mount.
I pulled the bolt today and there is a bit of play (bolt is a bit sloppy in the holes) in both the shock mount and the frame mount. Don't have a micrometer but I'm assuming it's the stock bolt because it has white marking paint on it still with a P,6,9 or something that looks like one of those on the head of it. Diameter should be 10mm correct? None of the holes look oblonged or anything.
That bolt should not have an unusual amount of play around it. The alloy mount should pinch the upper shock bushing tightly. Some people have trimmed the bushings on replacement shocks because they were so hard to position. The fiche says it is an M10x70 with threads only on the end. There should be no threads where the shock bushing rests. All that being said, as long as the bolt and bushing fit the 10mm description and the bolt is properly torqued, I wouldn't worry about it.
