Swing arm bolts

Recommended Posts

I have a couple of questions. First picture: This bolt is lose but won't come out. Is there a special way to get it out?

Second picture: this came off the old swing arm. The new one doesn't have one. Do I need to reuse it or is not needed to20170429_190730.jpg20170430_100858.jpg

1st pic: That bolt should slide out, if it doesn't then it may be rusted to the pivot collar. Try tapping it with a hammer to break it free. 

2nd pic: Yes you need that, it's the pivot collar that rides in the needle bearing and allows the swingarm to rotate smoothly. That one looks like crap so clean it up. If it's rusted or pitted, it should be replaced.

I ran into the same issue and had to use a hammer to remove the swing arm pivot axel (if that's what it's called). Now I need to re-assemble it and don't have the torque specs. Anybody have those specs? Need the swing arm pivot axel and the linkage that connects to the swing arm. Thanks in advance.
