Let me put the record absolutely correct.
I bought the bike in March 2016.
Soon after getting it, I pulled it apart to see how it worked, as I do with stuff generally.
I was given a set of instructions for disassembly and reassembly of the frame, and a sheet of maintenance instructions.
I looked on line regarding anything and everything regarding Moulton TSRs and found the MoultonBuzz website and forum. I joined the forum, but it wasn't very good and I've not looked at it since.
I saw the instructions regarding the suspension linkage arms and downloaded a PDF copy and studied it intently.
It's a good PDF, except for two issues.
If the factory greases the linkages, then that's good enough for me.
Doing as the PDF suggests, is rubbish.
Despite the issue with greasing or not greasing the linkages, they gloss over the compression of the spring.
It cannot be done without some form of mechanical anchorage to hold the spring compressed, as without it, you cannot get the linkages off easily or back on at all.
Hence my thread.
