Default swingarm pivot

Hey..

please dont ask why but I have to swap out my swingarm piviot bolt.

Is this something I can do?? I bought a cage from a friend and one of the mounting points is a long bolt that goes thru the whole swingarm bolt but the swingarm bolt had to be modified a little. hes said modifying it was real hard so i'm just gonna swap out mine for his.

easily done??

THanks

But no its not hard to do. You will need (or make) a socket for it tho. Unblot the shock, rear wheel, etc.

the funny part is I've seen that pic before but I couldn't make any sense out of it. This was thew ay the previous owner had it on his bike. So lets say that the bolt closest to the tail does bolt upthere.....where the hell is the front bolted onto???? looks like its on the frame itself. I could not look for any references b/c that is the only pic of an f4i with railz

even in that pic (the stunta), its not the swingarm bolt. IMO I wouldnt use if it mounted to the sw bolt, thats just bad engineering.
