Anyone ever rebuild one of these. The front wheel on my son's ET4 is a bit loose. Make's the bike steer and ride rather squirrely. Has anyone ever rebuild the front hub assembly that could lend some advise. Looked on wiki and could find anything

It sounds like a worn bushing on the trailing arm....which makes me ask....how many miles has it done?

It may be easier (and less expensive) to purchase a low mileage used steering column assembly from somewhere like ebay

Hope this helps

Hmmmm, I had a similar thing with my ET4 recently - but mine has covered 36,000 miles mind you......can you identify which part of the front suspension is making the scoot "squirrely"?
