Re: Removing swing arm?

Trying to drop the damaged 929 motor out of my bike, but I am trying to figure out how to acually remove the fasteners that hold the swing arm in place.

They look like some large, reverse nut.

Anyone got any clue one how to remove them? Is there some special tool I need to buy? Sorry, between my motor letting go last weekend and now I was unable to come up with a Factory Service Manual

Thanks in advance.

Re: Removing swing arm?

I will post what the manual has...its not much.
Loosen swingarm pivot pinch bolts.

Hold the pivot bolt using a 24mm socket wrench(?), then loosen and remove the swingarm pivot nut using the same tool. (The pic shows a breaker bar with a socket...hard to make out...but it must be like a large allen wrench with 1/2' drive...no part#)

Remove the pivot bolt and then remove the swingarm from the lower bracket and engine


Life always looks better through bugs on a face shield.

Re: Removing swing arm?

Measure the distance across. Go down to your local hardware store and buy a bolt that size with 2 nuts. Back the nuts into each other as tight as you can. If you have a welder (or a friend with one), you can weld them. Just make sure you keep the slag off the sides of the nut so it will still slide into the pivot.

Stick one end in the pivot and turn the other with a wrench. It is also the same size as the front axle.

You can buy an allen wrench that large if you can find it, and that is the proper tool.

I've also seen where guys weld a nut onto a socket.

When you remove it, make sure you only loosen the pinch bolts on the side with the threads. This is the one you need to take off. Then loosen the pinch bolts on the other side and spin it out. Make sure you have jackstands well placed under everything so it comes apart easily.

Yep. *The special tool you need is Honda part number 07930-KA50100 (Holder:Fork Tube). *Sells for about $15 and is well worth it. *Makes the whole job much easier, especially when reassembling things it allows you to properly torque the swingarm pivot shaft.

I got 2 of 'em so that I could hold both ends of the shaft to torque the shaft nut.

Re: Removing swing arm?

Get a 1/2" drive socket the same OD as the nut and grind four fingers into the end of it.

Re: Removing swing arm?

I bought this when I removed my swingarm Motion Pro Tools - T-6 CrMo Hex Axle Tool
it doesn't fit in too far because of the smaller size thats ont he end not fitting into the axle but its enough to get the job done.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: Removing swing arm?

But that's a hex tool?
I assume he means the castle-type tool to fit the early model swingarm pivot bolt nut. I think the centre piece is just a large allen key but much smaller than the 17mm tool I think.

I was answering the original poster's question. you use the 24mm end to loosen the swingarm pivot axle.

Re: Removing swing arm?

The original poster asked over four years ago though - I hope he already got it sorted by now :-)

why do you want to take the swinging arm out to replace the chain?

Re: Removing swing arm?

My guess is he's putting an OEM chain back on which is sealed. If not then I agree he's going about it the hard way :-)

oops, guess I shoulda paid more attention.


not sure why'd you put the original chain back on. get a chain riveter and a new chain.
