I have spent anywhere from 1/2 to 4 hours repairing one. It all depends on how it comes out. The 4 hour fix was on a kx.....poor design, hard to get at. If you can't get it out, slot it and screw it into the swing arm.....you will be money ahead. I had to cut the swingarm to get the bolt out and weld it up, re tap and mill it back to profile. The bolt was rusted on the end.....it would have never come out.
