It was a bondhus, expensive one too. Big leverage bar, heat, penetrating spray. No go.

Haven't had it apart from factory, but I was aware something like this might happen so no Biggie. Probably a good reminder for everyone else to keep on top of it.

Anti seize is what you want son, I've done a couple of sets of bushings through my dogbone and it's never stuck on me. I do want to try out the CXP dogbone but I don't believe it's a magic bullet... it just becomes another set of bearings you have to change, two DU bushings or four bearings? I'm happy doing the former but I own the bushing tool because I have a fury as well. Like anything it's all down to personal preference

First time i've disassembled the dogbone i had some trouble too. A lot of WD40...bike up sidedown and a little hit with a small hummer and job done.

Custom dogbone with bearings are the best solution in my opinion...i tried with other tipe of bushings but they didn't solve the problems.

I can't pull out the other big bushing! Not the bigger one but the other one near the BB. I tried with all possible thing but it still there. Any suggestion?

Well, I just bust my allen key trying to get the dogbone out, off to the engineer I go.

Might replace it with the CXP dogbone.

How tight are you fitting the dog bone bolts?
I'm sure they should only be 8 mm

It is not the dogbone is the hardware, nothing to do with a custom one.
Put the bike on a stand and it will come off with some lubricant.
Lifespan of that hardware is not too long.

looking to upgrade my fork and have a question about the offset. everything im finding says the sanction is built around a 44mm offset but im reading that you dont really have to worry about offset on 27.5 bikes. is this true? is anyone running a 46mm offset fork

I would say you need to be aware of offset, but 2mm won’t make too much difference
