Swing arm replacement

Post by AshleyMarshall » Tue Jul 11, 2017 11:23 am

So I have decided to replace the swing arm on my XJ as the old one is looking rusted and tired. How long would you think it should take to complete the task?

Probably half day. You have to support the bike, remove the rear wheel and chain, disconnect the shock, support the brake caliper and disconnect the torque bar. Then you can remove the bolt and remove the swing arm. Someone's the swing arm bolt can rust in place which will make the job much longer.
