    Swingarm Questions?

    I'm rebuilding my Swingarm and I could use a little help.

    Edit I figured it out

    Rick, have you considered going with bearings rather than the OEM bushings? If you get the sealed ones and pry off half the grease seals you can use grease pressure through the zerk fittings to seat the bearings. All those stock seals are hard to hold in position during reassembly.

    I was just just looking for the kit for him.

    Lost you on thus: "you can use grease pressure through the zerk fittings to seat the bearing" ? Seat?
