Hey all, I just picked up my 08 R1 swinger tonight and it has ur normal needle roller bearings in both ends
But in one end it also has a sealed roller bearing like a wheel bearing that is smaller than the needle ones.
My guess is the pivot bolt was stepped.
Anyway, I need to make a sleeve to fit the Z1000 pivot bolt, but my question is, has anyone used just normal bearings like wheel bearings in the swingarm pivot?
As would be way cheaper and easier to just match the I.D to the Z1000 piviotbolt and O.D to the R1 swinger.
