    Default swingarm problems '75 sporty.

    I am converting my 75 sporty to a hardtail. Took off everything, pivot bolt washers, bearings, and shocks. I thought the swingarm would pull right off,and noticed the pivot bolt nut. I read the Clymer service manual. but not clear if the inner and outer primary has to be removed or is there a different way?Am I not getting something?

    Is it that you cant get the bolt out from contact with the block or is the bolt out and the swingarm is wedged?

    If the bolts out put a tire iron behind it and pop it out. Its just a tight fit thats all.

    Did you unscrew the lock nut for the right bearing? Remove lockplate and unscrew it a1/4". This nut is pressing the bearing race of the tapered bearing inwards against the inner bearing, which is then pressed against the bearing spacer and then the frame. Undoing that nut will relief pressure and the bearing can slide inwards away from the frame. Rock the swingarm side ways a little and it should come free.

    Thanx for all the great advise,Itried a pry bar, but before I end up doing any more damage, thought Id post this pic. This looks like a box screw, but it is not stationary. Seems to float, but cant access it from any angle.

    You do not have to undo that nut to remove the swingarm and you can not do it, īcause it is held by the engine case. It is number 12 in the pic and the swingarm spindle goes into it. Remove spindle 1 and locknut 6. Move swingarm sideways to force right bearing 8 back into swingarm. It should come loose now. Pic is not showing the correct swingarm, but all the parts are identical to the early one.
