Swingarm replacement

Recommended Posts

Finally got around to replacing swing arm ($50 used) so that I have rear stand spools, since one of the brackets 'broke'.  Got new chain ($50) and borrowed Todd's (who's he right?) Chain breaker/riveter.  Had to buy special tool ($18 + 3 weeks from China) to remove pivot 'nut', which any one can borrow it you ever need; different than the one used on a Kawasaki - mine would work on kaw but not the other way around.

 

Took about 4 hours.  Not too bad.

what broke?  one of the spool mounts on the original swing arm?

Yes.  Spool had a sudden impact incident.
