    Have a 1991, the pin that holds the rear shock into the swingarm has some slop. Most noticeable when your in the rough stuff. Can feel it when you lift the back of the bike up all the way. Does anyone else have this problem? Ordered a new pin, seems to be the swingarm mount hole is to big. Any good way to fix this?
    When in doubt, Gas it!

    I bought a kit from All Balls. Works very well. Comes with everything except the thin washers.
    If you can't find it, grind it

    jakemistake I have the same situation a 2004 with 2000 miles. Its not good for the handling. I,ll be replacing my fork seals in the next 2 week and will see what the deal is with the loose shock then. It shouldnt be left that way as it will eventualy egg out the mounting holes.

    My new tw has the same loose on the bottom shock. The holes of the swing arm and the hole of the shock seem to be a little bigger than the pin. Can maybe try to get a bigger pin?

    The journey is more important then the destination and to have someone to talk to about your journey is the most important of all. Enjoy every day and keep riding.
