    This doesn't help at all! It is smooth because there is no internal threading so bolt won't go in. How do you fix this?!

    Bolt thread is there, internal thread is not.

What size are the unused threaded holes where the frame hold the rear tire

It is metric threading, most likely M5, possibly M4 (5/4 mm diameter of bolt). You can find bolts to fit in most all hardware or big box stores. The part "where the frame hold the rear tire" is called the rear dropout. Here's a pic showing various bike part names:The Parts Of Bicycle Nomenclature Bike Component Names What Things Are...

I just finished wiring my custom bobber with a twin cam A harley motor and it trips the starter relay but not before it starts smoking from the pivot bolt on the rear swing arm. Why is this

Did you put lights (license plate, brake light, turn signals, running lights) onto the swingarm? When you cut off your fender, what did you do with the lighting? The lights expect to get ground (the negative side of your 12V system) through your frame. So the frame--your fender, your frame, the metal parts of the bike--act as the negative 'wire' for your system. In this case, I expect your swingarm is providing that ground instead, and the swingarm runs through a bearing/bushing/pivot point that is likely greased and not a good electrical conductor! You could try running a heavy primary wire from the bike frame or engine mounting point back to a point on the swingarm, preferably where your lights are mounted. Leave a loop or slack wire at the pivot point of the swingarm so you don't break the wire when you hit a bump. (By the way, I assume you really mean the starter breaker, not the starter relay...)

Have a 1985 Suzuki rm250. Cant get swing arm pivot bolt out. Wont budge a mm. Have a bolt on it still to have something to brace and hammer onto. What the heck do we do? Lol

Hi Ashley

There is no other way, but with gentle brut force. Remove the nut and lay the bike on its side with swing arm bolt thread exposed and facing up.

Use Q20 / WD40 or any type of aerosol anti seize releasing fluid by spraying it on to bolt thread and swing arm making sure to get the fluid to enter the bolt hole of the swing arm. You might have to do this for a couple of days to a week 5 - 10 times a day. Leave the bike lying on its side. To check, replace nut leaving 2 - 3mm gap before its against the swing arm and hammer it lightly without damaging the thread for movement. If no luck, you will have to drill 3 - 4 (3mm) holes in to the swing arm on the section where the bolt slides through to spray the fluid directly on to the bolt shaft. You can weld or plug the 3 or 4 holes after you have removed the seized bolt, but be careful not to obstruct the bolt hole. It takes some patience but you will get it out.

Adjust tension on wishbone rear

For a 2004 Softail - you never gave a model year.
1. Place rear fork (3) in the frame so that
the bores in the frame align with the bores in the fork.
Insert the bushings (10) into the spherical bearings (7)
from the inside.
2. Install pivot shaft.
a. Apply LOCTITE ANTI-SEIZE to pivot shaft (4).
b. From the right side, install pivot shaft and spacers
with spacer collars facing transmission case.
c. Apply LOCTITE THREADLOCKER 262 (red) to
threads of pivot shaft nut. Install and tighten pivot
shaft nut to 90-110 ft-lbs (122-149.1 Nm).
Proper pivot shaft tightening is important to maintain rear fork
3. Check for freedom of rotation of the rear fork around the
bearings and that the fork and frame side members have
not been distorted when the pivot shaft nut was tightened.
4. Install the canister (California models),
fender extension (2), brake caliper and rear wheel.
5. Install both rear shock absorbers (9) using bolts and
washers (8).

Swingarm pivot bolt striped out on 81 flh

Hi Anonymous, this issue should be repaired by an experienced professional at your local dealer or reputable shop. It can be done without removing the cylinder head, transmission or primary depending on your scenario. Your damaged threads can either be restored or replaced with steel threads without contaminating the affected area with broken aluminum threads. good luck and have nice day.

I stripped the bike down to change all pivot bearings,when rebuilding i had 4 washers that im not sure go on the pivot bolts on rear wheel hanger or if they are for the shock bolts cheers.

Does you shock have side to side play, if so then the washers or at least some of them go there. Without seeing and knowing what frame, parts and in general what you are referencing it is rather difficult to be precise.

The shock should be the easiest to determine as it should be mounted so that all the space is taken up along the mounting bolt. if there are gaps the washers go there.

Can not remove swingarm pivot bolt

Secure the bike with the rear tire off the ground.

Take the nut off the one side of the pivot bolt.

Now get a rubber mallet or deadblow, and beat that pivot bolt hard a few hits
Don't be afraid to hit it hard, because thats what it'll take to get it out.
DO NOT use a hammer and beat the threads or mushroom the end of the pivot bolt or you'll never get it out unless you cut it off.

use one hand to hold the swingarm while tapping the bolt, which will take a little pressue off the bolt making it slide out with each tap.

Before reassemble, clean the bolt and the threads.

How to put spring back on kickstand 2004 1200 sportster

There is a place on the frame and a place on the kickstand for each end of the spring to connect to. With the bike on the kickstand and someone to help steady the bike, use a pair of side cut pliers or a very strong spring hook to pull the spring and rconnect it to the kickstand.

If you can't get it this way, remove the pivot bolt, connect both ends in their proper positions and work the kickstand back into position so the pivot bolt will go back in.

It's tough but it can be done.

Bike stand doesn't return

Yes , it may require some light lubricating at around the stand but first you will need to clean up throughly around the stand fittings better to use WD40 and thn some mineral oil as lubricant.
Not bad too to check the spring of its tension!
Hope this helps!
