    Hmm, no make, model or other clues. Hold them up to the screen (kidding). You REALLY need to have someone with eyeballs on it take a look. Bike Shop maybe?

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.

How do you remove swing arm on a 99 yamaha big bear 350


Easy - take off tires, then caps over axle/castle nuts if you have them.
- take cotter pins and axle nuts off both ends of axle. Right side - remove brake drum, then remove two brake shoes, simple Springs connect them, you can pull apart intact, remove any collars, washers off the axle behind brakes, then there might be 4 bolts and a plate - the other side you can see the bearing. Now - this is important - for. The side with the brakes, take a socket bigger than the threads but size of axle lip - and you place that deep socket (side with brakes!) over the threads (threads will be inside deep socket) lip of socket touches lip of axle about 2-3 inches down - hit that w a hammer and the axle will go out to the left if facing rear of four wheeler. Next - remove brake lines and breather hose for rear end.
There are bolts that attach the rear end to the swing arm (to the right) take them out and maybe the bottom guard for rear end. Then where the rear end attaches to drive shaft tube portion of swing arm there are four bolts - when all that is done you'll be able to remove rear end. Undo top bolt or you might get away w/bottom for shock - next two pivot shaft nuts - big socket like, Allen head in middle - remove nut from pivot shaft (left and right side where swing arm pivots) then takeallAllen head and unscrew two thick bolts that the pivot shaft nuts tighten to our - there's a collar and bearing in there where the bike's swing arms pivot at. I've done it a dozen times - if you have any problems or that wasn't too clear, message me, I'll dig up some tech sheets from a service manual I got on a bike that year - close to same model - same mechanics, Yamaha was pretty universal. I got a 98 & 99 Yamaha 2wd and a 96 Yamaha 3504wd. All pretty easy to work on. I have a swing arm I might get rid of from Florida and a decent rate if yours is done for and you gotta replace. I sell and buy off eBay to keep most of my toys on the trail.Good luck

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).
NOTE
Proper pivot shaft tightening is important to maintain rear fork
alignment.
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).

Need a picture of how its done im trying to install the longer rod for lowering the ride hight


Evidently, you are trying to lower a Softail bike. You must raise the bike so you can get at the shocks underneath. But, you must also block the rear wheel up so it doesn't fall when you disconnect the shocks.

Once you get the bike litke this, loosen the lock nuts towards the rear wheel. With those loose, take the bolts out that hold the pivot rods to the rear swing arm. Now, turn the adjuster nut so that the pivot rods are coming out of the adjuster nut. Once completely out, start your new longer rods back in the adjuster nuts. Don't forget to take the lock nut off the original pivot rods and put them on the new ones before you put them in the adjuster nuts. Do both shocks the same way. Adjust the rods to the same length and bolt them back to the swing arm. If the won't go, you may have to raise or lower the rear wheel so that the bolt holes line up with the pivot rods. Reinstall the bolts that hold the pivot rods to the swingarm and lock the lock nuts down. Your bike should be lowered at this point. If it's not like you want it, you'll have to adjust the shocks with the adjuster bolt.

Keep in mind that on the Softail, if you lower the bike too much, the top of the final drive belt may rub the underside of the inner primary cover underneath the starter and make a noise. If you hear a whining noise, this is probably what it is. Watch for that.

Sorry, I don't have any pictures.

Good Luck

Resr end of bike seems to twitch at times could it be swingarm


Things to check. Is the chain adjusted correctly and is the rear axle tight. With the rear wheel off the ground can the wheel be rocked around on the axle (Are there bad wheel bearings?). If you still have the problem after these checks, raise the rear wheel off the ground,take off the wheel, unbolt the shock (check mounting bolts for looseness), grab the rear swing arm to see if it moves or wiggles at the pivot points. You probably have bad swing arm bearings. If the swing arm bearings are bad you will probably have to change both bearings and the long inner bushing to fix the problem.

You need to replace the main pivot bolt, something (most likely a tab) is broken. This one is best taken to your local bike shop for inspection. There may be something your missing like a crack in the body or another broken part. Link to Manual.

You can also contact the SRAM customer service for support, but they will refer you to a shop to take care of the problem and order any parts on this type of problem.

I have an old schwinn varsity. I went to change the rear tire, and turned out the rear axle bolt is stripped and I can't put wheel back on. Where can I find a replacement axle bolt?


you need a new axle kit, and a cog removal tool. They used to be a Huret dearailleur if I remember right. I know a varsity never had Shimano. I think you may be better off buying a new rear wheel (it is usually less money than having to rebuild the axle) and let the bike shop do the change over, it is well worth it. You wont have to deal with the brakes,check the cones etc. Why did you have the Meridian adult trike on, and you have an old 10 speed Varsity? Kind of confusing.

How to replace swing arm bearings on 1970 sportster


Get the bike up off the ground and make sure it's secure. Remove the rear wheel and the rear shocks. Look for anything else that may be attached to the swing arm such a brake rod return springs etc.

Once you have everthing off the swing arm, take the pivot bolt out and the swing arm with the bearings slides off the frame. Remvove the screw and lockwasher, bearing lockwasher, the right bearing locknut, and the bearing outer spacer. Using a punch, turn out the left bearing locknut from the fork hub and remove the spacer. From inside the fork, press or drive out the bearings and bearing spacers by applying pressure against the spacer. Press or drive out the bearing shields from fork inner side.

Hope this helps,

Good Luck

How do i remove the pivot bolt from the swingarm to get the engine out on a rm 125 2003?


It will have a nut on one end (usually a 22mm, or 7/8" socket) and a washer. Most bikes you have to remove the rear brake pedal to allow the bolt to come out. It should come out with help from a hammer and a large punch. If it doesn't, no one has ever removed it and greased it up. I have seen them so bad you have to cut the pivot bolt out, not a fun job!

Just for some information, in a race season, I pull every nut, bolt, bearing and pivot point apart to pack some grease in. Then I lock-tite all hardware (Blue 242) This helps down the road. I do this a couple times a year.
