    Insert the LH swingarm pivot bolt and tighten just until the bolt makes contact with the swingarm pivot bearing (do not torque down):

    Return to the RH side of the bike and tighten the swingarm pivot bolt just until you barely feel contact with the pivot bearing and the swingarm can no longer easily be pulled left or right by hand force.

    *You align the swingarm by having the same number of threads visible on each swingarm pivot bolt on either side of the swingarm (or measure with a vernier caliper)

    Refit and tighten down the swingarm pivot lock nuts (it may be necessary to remove the rubber cap in the center of the nut to insert a holder into the allen key to ensure that the swingarm pivot bolt does not turn while torquing the nut):

    1. Re-tighten the hose clamp on the transmission to swingarm bellows.

    2. Refit the rear shocks.

    3. Adjust the cable slack as per the factory service manual.
