    Swing arm bearings

    Post by Clarky_two on Tue Jul 26, 2016 9:37 pm

    Hi guys. I've bought the proactionsport swing arm bearings kit. I am having issues with it fitting back into the swing arm location on the engine block. The spacers are being pushed out by the seals. I have removed the seals and tried to fit it but it's almost like the bearings are too big. They are pressed together as far as they will go with equal distance either side to take the spacers but they still won't fit. Anyone else had any issues with this? It's difficult to measure against the old bearings as they fell apart when I took them out.

    Need to get  the bike back together by Friday.

    I grease mine quite often and have found if i use to much grease there no way the little bastards will go back in.
