KTM PDS rear shock absorber models (including EXC and XC-W, both 2-stroke and 4-stroke) have a press fit heim joint bearing in the swingarm.
The Heim Joint Press Tool (HJPT) can be used to easily replace the bearings on any year PDS bike.
The advantage of using the HJPT over a method such as hammering is that the HJPT presses the bearing in to the swingarm straight, in a controlled manner minimizing the chance of expensive damage to the swingarm and bearing. The press tool is specially shaped so that it only contacts the bearing outer cage and features a machined press stop which positions the new bearing precisely in the center of the swingarm. Each HJPT kit includes a press tool, bearing collar, bearing cup, press bolt, bolt head spacer, washer and nut.
