  1. Also... I need to clean up again, Loco Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Watch how I never put this much effort into a swing arm bolt again. 2 days of Kroil, heating, and beating vs 2 minutes of cheap, harbor freight $25 sawzall. Ha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Tubes in boobies are ok tho Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Nevermind. I was misunderstanding the assembly. Didn’t realize how long the pivot tube is. Now it all makes sense. Like the first time I touched a boobie but different. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Right on, man. I’ve honestly stayed away from Vitos since I got on this site. I grabbed a big tube of anti-seize. One thing that is f**king with my head is that I can turn the bolt which makes sense but I can’t move the swingarm side to side over the bolt/spacer assembly but I can’t move the bolt out. This makes no sense. If it was welded to the frame I wouldn’t be able to turn it and if I can move the swing arm pivot side to side, the bolt should move in or out at least to the same limit as the swing arm side to side movement. Based on what’s in there... it’s not as much frustrating as it i
  6. Yeah those threads are gone. Haha. The nut was made out of apple juice and wasp nests, I think. I kept it on about flush with the end of the bolt. The nut is pulverized and actually jumped threads so the bolt is trashed too. But I’d already ordered the swing arm goodies and the new bolt before I started all of this. I knew it would be a twat to remove so considered cutting it out beforehand. I just ordered a sawzall. Haha. Someone has had it off before because the washer under the bolt head is not OEM. I saw these carbon fiber bushings on (cough cough) Vito’s that have a lifetime warranty and
  7. For now I have to get it out. Have been soaking it in Kroil every time I walk past it. Smacked it so much with my 5lb that the nut I left on the end of the bolt actually jumped threads. (I have a new bolt anyway. Going to try a couple of things. Threaded rod through the center with a good built up of nuts and washers on the threaded end. An impact socket over the head on the other end with a few washers. The socket will clear the bolt head. The washers will disperse force. Then put a nut down to the washers and righted as much as puss I left. Have a couple feet of rod remaining so I can put a
  8. I found a nightmare under that garbage swing arm seal guard chain roller garbage when I cut it off for the TM chain guide. So... I have seen talk of setting the swingarm bolt up with a zerk fitting to allow for future greasing. But haven’t found threads with results by people who have done it. Does anybody know if the bolt is hardened or case hardened? I am going to do the grease fitting mod but not putting a tap into hardened steel. I am also going to bring grease runners along the length that intercept the grease holes I will be drilling into the shaft. And that is after I remove what I assu
  9. It doesn't look the same as the OEM washer but it is definitely made for this same countershaft. Everything lines up. And why would someone not tighten it to spec? That blows me away a little. I mean if it was like 12ft lbs and someone tightens to 15, whatever. But so 60 pounds as opposed to 0 pounds...
  10. Oh thanks. Haha. I stared at this schematic before I even posted and couldn't find it. Like where's waldo
  11. The counterbored side of the nut was against the washer and sprocket. So far I am going to grab a new sprocket, washer, collar and nut.
  12. Found a plastic piece buried in the sweet sweet chain-lube/mud/sand mix all caked up in the front sprocket area. See photos. Front sprocket is junk but wondering if the collar is ok or is this something I should replace. And is this an OEM nut? I am putting a case saver on and switching to the TM chain guides/rollers. The counter shaft seems to have normal play (in and out but no play side to side[emoji4]). The sprocket is worn out, possibly prematurely but definitely in the normal and predictable way. The collar has a groove through the center running evenly around the outside and seems ma
