What makes that a bad idea? I'm only using the shoulder to temporarily center the new washer, long enough to weld it onto the frame. The shoulder will eventually be turned down (along with most of the length of the pivot bolt) and pass fully through the new, welded-on plate when it's all properly assembled.quote:Originally posted by Swagger
Relying on the shoulder to locate one side of your swingarm is a bad idea. Hell, threading some stainless rod stock should be cake for you, make your own pivot bolt.....really.
