  1. Remove the stock linkage from the ATV (refer to the Honda Service Manual for detailed instructions). Remove the sleeves from your stock linkage. Install those sleeves into your new Elka linkage. Be sure to transfer the sleeves to the corresponding bearing on the Elka linkage. If the sleeves are worn, they will need to be replaced prior to installation in the Elka linkage. VERY IMPORTANT: Apply grease to the bearings before inserting the sleeves into your Elka linkage. Keep the bearings properly greased tp prevent premature wear of the llinkge and bearings.
