Me too :-)
But I also hate having nice shiny tools that never get used :-)

Once the bolt gets very "stuck" in there the double nut is hard to make work. Getting them welded takes all of 5 minutes and works perfectly. I just did mine and had double nuts and welded. I put on an impact and broke the weld. Had to have it rewelded and the outer nut weld still failed while the inner nut held and allowed it to work.

Certainly try it if you don't have a welder but I doubt it'll work.
I had the swingarm 3 times of the bike and it has worked everytime. I allso tighten it whit the same bolts. I have 2 of them whit right size heads so that i can hold the axle in place when i open it or tighten it and nuts on the bolts tightened against each other so that they work like a lock nut. They are pretty big bolts so in my opinnion they should easily hold it.

Re: CBR 929 SWINGARM PIVOT BOLT

I needed mine welded. JB weld didn't even hold. The 954 is 24mm or 5/8". I believe 929 is same..

Just jamming the two bolts together is normally not enough. if you weld them you can use and impact on it.

Measure it?
You don't need a socket, get a bolt with a head size that fits into the swingarm pivot, then weld a nut on the threaded end so you can use a wrench to undo it.

Re: CBR 929 SWINGARM PIVOT BOLT

Should be able to do it with one. Pinch the left side and remove the right side nut with the hex tool. Then un-pinch the left and pull the shaft/bolt.
