  • siezed chain adjust bolt recommendation.

    Hey guys....my chain adjuster bolt in my swingarm is properly seized...


    I tried to crack it yesterday. Hit it with penetrating oil for a week, applied heat, shocked it, freeze and release. Nothing will budge it...

    I gave up after the bolt started to torsion instead of turn..




    can anyone recommend a good workshop that can help me with this??

    I'd prefer not to drill it out and retap a larger tread....i've bought chain adjusters already and would like to keep this sized thread so they work...

    Does it wind in at all or frozen solid?

      Cut it off before it snaps, re drill and hellicoil so you have same size

        Can you remove it completely then clean up the threads with tap and die? That system just acts as a stop for the axle block to butt up against right? So it should never be under load ie: it doesn't matter too much if the threads are a bit weakened.

            Its bent and off centre anyway so the Alloy swingarm thread will be fucked anyway.

            Snap/cut it off unless forward/backward with rattle gun doesn't do it.
            dress the top flat
            centre punch accurately
            Pilot drill dead centre
            Get a Helicoil kit and follow instructions.

            And always Antiseize every thread you touch on motorcycles (yes even from brand new)

              whoa. that just sounds way above my skill level.

              something where precision is required i am bound to fuck up.

              just found an entire swingarm on ebay....for twice the price of a helicoil kit.

              might just get that and save myself the swearing....

                    Buy a second handy and swapping it in?! That's effort AND expense. Just take it to an engineering firm as it is, they'll fix it for way less.

                      Andy, I've got a helicoil kit here that you can have. The SXV did the very same thing on the LHS. Happy to leave in the carport for you to collect
