Default What is the correct lower shock bearing for a 1988 CR250R

     

Anybody know the correct lower shock bearing to order for an 88' CR250R? I see they are no longer available from Honda. Looking at "All Balls" , "Pivot Works" and "Moose " racing, they all seem to have listings for up to 87' and then 89' and later. Were the 88's some odball one year design? I was wanting to order the parts so I would have them when I get home from working away. I dod not have my linkage to look at. I am working on a bike restoration that a previous person gave up on. he replaced the swingarm, and linkage bearings but the one bearing where the shock attaches to the link is still shot and needs replacing. Last I remembered that bearing was a spherical bearing like the 87'. Anyone familiar with this and know what kit to use? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Have you tried to take the old unit to a bearing supply house to seek a replacement?

Also see this on e-bay.. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rear-Shock-B...xXNYlo&vxp=mtr

Thanks. That is the kind of bearing I believe it is but my memory is not that clear. I had my last 1988 cr250r in the 80s and 90s. I remember changing that bearing but can't for sure remember why it looked like. I don't have access to the parts as they are 500 miles away to look for sure. I do know the old one was hammered. I am trying to get together a bunch of parts to mail order for when I get home. That part number 29-1017 on all balls website only lists till 87' on the CR250R here is the quote from their site "Application Lwr Rear Shock Brg Kit Honda CR125R 85-88, CR250R 85-87, CR500R 85-88, Upr Rear Shock Brg Kit Honda XR200R 81-91" I am hoping someone will clarify it for me.

The one I posted is the correct one. The others as you listed will not fit.

That eBay link you sent lists the All Balls PN. 29-1017. It is the same as I listed there for application. It does not say it fits the 88' CR250R.

The e-bay item does in fact state that it fits the 1988 unit.
