Sooooo... no pic but it's damn near bare frame. I want the swingarm off and I'm looking at the manual but not getting it. Do I just remove the spanner nut and then it comes apart or do I need to do something after/before the spanner nut? I see hex heads inside the nut but the doc's I'm looking at aren't clear on what to do.

I pulled the plastic plugs off both sides of the stamped frame, the air shock is off, the swing-arm is ready to drop if I can get the pivot out.

TIA

Did you get a service manual? Download one here and your question will be answered.

Slowly cleaning nuts, bolts washers and more one by one BUT anyone have a lead on a new u-joint for the driveshaft?

Can't find a new u-joint anywhere. Swingarm bearings would be great too, I've seen them listed but not in stock anywhere. TIA.

All Balls for the fork conversion are in the mail :D

Neither sportland in urbana nor csmnl.com have them.  Both surprise me.   :o

surely they are not worn out.  Clean and repack them.

Or take them to your local Motion Industries.  They should find them.

Just dont screw them up.

the u joint is not replaceable it is staked  and never was a service item you replace the drive shaft

if you are needing one pm me i will dig you one up

swing arm bearings are to be had   right from any bearing supply

30202 and the ID measures 17mm  you must use both cup and cone

size 30203 is 17x40x12

Thanks for that cxman, I'll check get bearings.

Driveshaft rotates freely so I'll just clean it up and use it for now.

I got the rough engine cleaning done yesterday before I get crack it open.





Also gathered more parts... head bearings came in for the fork swap and a few other bits.
