Thx man....I am hard at it

Question for anyone who can help :

I believe that one of the swingarm bearings go where the red arrow is....not sure about the other bearing...there is a groove where the blue arrow is and none on the other side....second part of the question is, does it matter which side of the swingarm.. the notch (green arrow) on the pivot shaft goes? The colors man....the colors.....heh.

Mine is'nt exactly like yours but some swing arm bearings go in from the inside out and the snap ring is your stop.
But there is also some that go from the outside in...

Mine goes from the insde out(did'nt know that untill I went to put my swing arm in and the spacers would'nt go in )

Those spacers on you bolts for the shaft go inbetween the frame and your pivot bearings.

I would'nt think it would matter where the notch goes. Thats just a place to put a wrench when your tightening your bolts...


hope this helps

yo chainz,

now the fun beginz.
i just looked at minez
the bearingz go in from the outside
(but you will figure that out because the pivot shaft won't fitt)
the notch on the pivot shaft doesn't matter.
the notch iz for holding it from turning whilez you tighten it up
the washer go between the bearingz and the frame
the allen boltz are recessed in the frame.

don't forget to send the pivot shaft to the chromer because you can see it.

Got the swingarm on with a little this and that...Had some temporary motor mount bolts on...put the ones on that go on it and found out the bolts in the back near the tranny are a tight fit against the heads until it gets almost all the way in...one side will not go down all the way so I will have to make the mount hole a little bigger.. I tried moving the engine around a little bit to try to get more room but it's just too tight...can't trim the bolts or the length will be too short...going to do somemore work on it tonight...will take somemore pics soon...thx for the support !!!

Question about Shocks & Bolts

Okay...first questions of the morning....are these the correct shock bolts?...they appear to be the right ones.....and do the thick chrome washers ( 2. ) go where I have them? The thin washers ( 1. ) came with the shocks...want to make sure I am installing them right...and last does the extended end of the shock go toward the engine? .

minez only has the #2 washers, they go on the outside
no washer on the inside.
the extended arm or adjuster goes to the rear (swingarm)

Thx jimbo,

In my excitement to get the pulleys on the primary and check the trans alignment so's I can trim some of the bolts on the bottom that are hitting the shocks, I tapped the roll pins into the insert that came with the pulley, not knowing a insert kit came in another package for a wide tire offset....and now I can't drill `em out or find anything yet to tap`em out.....so I am trying to get the pins out. probably as you are reading this....heh...more to come.
