Put a little bit of Elmer's Glue for extra strength and you're good to go.

Is that a subframe mounting point?

The shock bolts on PDS bikes are something you have got to check before every ride. They take a beating.

KTM until very recently has only used a linkless rear suspension and used a progressive spring along with two stage valving rather than linkage to provide progressive damping. It's a love hate relationship with PDS. Hard to get it adjusted right but nice for going over crap without hanging up. Some of their bikes now come with linkage, others are still PDS.

Don't you have the Suspension Bible? Go read it.

Then again, I didn't know I had a PDS shock until we opened it and it was explained to me.
