    Re: Swingarm maintenance Do It!!!

    I've changed the swingarm from S1 to S2 today. Not a simple job but not too hard also. Takes 5-6 hours though.

    The order of uninstallation is:

    1. Rear fender
    2. Rear brake caliper
    3. Rear wheel
    4. manifold to take out catalysis
    5. catalysis
    6. rear shock bottom bolt










    Dirt coming out



    After a quick cleaning with kerosene.



    Drive chain laying down in kerosene for a couple of hours.



    Comparison of S1 and S2 swingarms, total weight of S2 is around 1kg less i guess.




    Used some greas oil before repacking.



    At the end.





    Not too painful but time taking. You'll need 27mm socket for uninstalling swingarm shaft. It's a 120nm bolt, a long racher is needed, and a torque wrench would be useful.
    Other than that, it's easy.
