Vertical links

PostPost by: Dieschelan » Sun Nov 27, 2022 12:16 pm

Hi

I have bought two vertical links from different suppliers. SJ don’t has both sides and I bought the other part to TTR.
The part I bought to TTR don’t has the hole for the grease nipple… Is this important?
How can I know which part is for each side?

Cheers

The TTR vertical link is a solid one. Only really for racing. I'd use the road variety with the grease channel and the grease nipple for anything other than full on racing.
TTR stock both , I believe.
Just ask them to swap them.
Then fill them with grease.........................................gets popcorn out
