Question about 2009 Harley Davidson FXDC Dyna Super Glide Custom
Backed off & re-torqued, slightly overtightened, replaced bearing, replaced bushing & spacers & shaft re-torqued. good for 462 miles then backed off, re-torqued no improvement. it appears the swinging arm is loose on the bushing, as the spacer & shaft do not move. originally noticed problem at 20,000 miles now have 48,000 on the clock. reluctant to put in new bushing & spacer for only 400 odd miles. dealer mechanic says new swingarm is maybe the only answer. can the swinging arm be repaired? maybe bored out & an insert fitted. then have the spacer matched to the new inside diameter. how much clearance should there be & could I make a bushing out of molebdenum?
Lay the bike on its side. Superglue the bush to the swing arm. Lay the bike over the other way and repeat. Do not glue the bush to the shaft.

SOURCE: Hello, I have a 99
Sounds like you've got it together correctly. There is no washer between the brake caliper bracket and the swingarm. You can put the axle in from either direction. We usually put them in from the left side so that we no longer have to remove a muffler to remove the rear wheel. The nut is now on that side. Just make sure the wheel turns smoothly and the brakes work correctly before taking in out on the road. If you hear a chirping noise when you shift gears, your rear belt is too loose.
