Hi all,

I'm trying to determine if my new swingarm bushings have made my swingarm too tight. It takes a good amount of pressure for me to move the swingarm without the shocks on. I was reading this thread: viewtopic.php?f=29&t=320&st=0&sk=t&sd=a and Bill seems to answer the question but alas, his posts are gone. So, anyone have a rule of thumb on how tough it should be to move the swingarm up and down?

If the pivot bolt is torqued to the correct amount, and the swing arm feels stiff, but can move, it will be fine... The bike's weight plus you, plus momentum is well over 500 ft pounds of force.....
