  • Removing swingarm

    Hi,I'm going to remove the swingarm on my Roadie.Any hints or tips please.Such as how do I take off the plastic caps that are over the main pivot/shaft,do they unscrew or do they lift off using a flat screw driver/blade? Thanks

    The plastic covers are just pressed in. I use a putty knife, twisting the blade to pull them off.
    You might find that it is easier to remove the rear fender and the plastic cover to get to the shock.
    Before you install the swing arm is a good time to grease all the pivot bearings with lithium grease.

      I'm taking the whole back end off and fitting a Thunderbike 240 wide rear wheel and a Thunderbike modified swingarm.My R* is a 1700,I'm fitting spoked wheels and going for retro bobber look.V&H short shots,wishbone bars and a sprung bates style saddle etc :-)

    Would like to see some pics. If I get another bike I was thinking of something like that with another RS. Mine would be more along the line of a stripped down RS.
