  • Swingarm Removal

    Hi all,

    I need to remove/refit the swingarm on my 2006 Gixxr 1000.

    Can anyone that has done this share how they supported the bike for this to happen, and if there is a support used that anyone could lend me it would be much appreciated.

    Cheers Guys

    Have you got aftermarket rearsets with fixed foot pegs ?

    If so you could use a set of stands that lift the pegs. We just used a set of car stands.
    Some say he eats sidchrome for breakfast

    Some say he only showers on even days of the week

    Some say he put an R1 motor in a coffee machine

    All we know is he's Hewie.

          Once you have cracked all the nuts & bolts place the bike on a rear stand and tie it to the roof (tie downs work well) then take the stand away.

          A 1K throttle is like a hot blond, you really want to hit it but you are afraid of the consequences :black eye:

            Thanks for the ideas guys. Car stands and a bit of securing could work and I have a set of car stands, bonus.

            No not bearings I have to repair the broken rear stand lug...... :-(
