Question about Yamaha Motorcycles
Just wondering how common it is for the swing arm pivot bolt to snap on an XJR1300
Must admit that as long as I have been involved in motorcycles which is 30 years plus, I have not heard of a swing arm pivot bolt snapping. Has it been weakened some how ? eg machined welded, heated the cooled quickly which would cause the steel to become harder but a brittle. Hope that helps

SOURCE: pivot bolt
the pivot bolt will be of high grade steel and it will be unusual for this to happen. That said the bolts are mass produced and only a percentage are checked for fault. If you bought the bike second hand I would be more suspicious of some one fitting the wrong bolt.Check with a dealer for a recall for this fault as it would be a safety recall if common.
