Swingarm Pic Rqd

Postby RichardsMorphy » Wed Nov 29, 2017 5:24 pm

Can anyone please help?
I need a photo of a 750 swingarm clearly showing the front chainguard tab - mine was broken off and botched back on with pop rivets and, now it's been blasted, a mate's going to weld on a new one for me so I can get it painted.

Also......is the hole threaded or is it a nut and bolt jobbie?

And many others no doubt.
Usually by someone trying to remove a seized bolt that twists the tab and....snap!
My mate thinks I'm barmy trying to get stuff as near to original as possible :oops:

Wuh, Hi Andrew, if you can wait a few weeks.(around xmas). I'll give you photos of a swingarm with a tab and one without.
Cheers Scotch.

It is threaded, but imo its a weak spot as the 'thread' is in thin tin! one overtighten of the chainguard bolt, and oh bugger, loose forever. Use a dab of threadlock and only nip it up.
