    lube your xr swingarm pivot bolt ragularly

    Had the same problem with my 250. elctric saw no good 2 ton strong back no goob big hammer and drift no good in the bike shop 2 weeks no good . in the end i sprayed a product called PLUSGAS into all the bits i could of the swing arm i did this every night for 5 days then gave it a wack with a hammmer and drift and out it popped big releif. Anyway what i found was, was that the swing arm bolt will turn BUT WHAT IT DOES IS IT STICKS TO THE BEARINGS AND THEY TURN ASWELL, SO TURNING THE BOLT EVERY NOW AND AGAIN MIGHT NOT BE ENOUGH, so just bite the bullet and take it all out and grease it up every six months or so. Happy riding.
