The rod ends on my ride height adjuster on my 748S have frozen. Does any one have any sources for rod ends?

you mean the threads are rusted and seized or the ball end has jammed up? Either way you can soak them in penatrating fluid over night and see if they un seize. Also I used a propane torch to heat the threads up then stuck them in cold water and they came loose...Used a vice to hold the rod.

I think they come from the factory frozen. You may be best off removing it and working on it on the bench.

Any bearing supply house should have them.

The ends were seized to the rod, we froze them and finally broke them loose. There is no movement in the spherical ball. Metric is a no no where I live in the bearing supply houses. I have a a new billet rod and just need to find the ends.
Moto do you sell just the ends?
