While I was waiting on the last few parts to come in I went ahead and put new brake pads on the front with fresh fluid and changed the front fork oil. I went down from 15w to some Bel-Ray 10w. I'll see how much that softens up the front end. At least it wasn't as fouled as much as the last time I changed it.
All I got was... "They weren't in the bag with the other part"
Oh well, what can you do. Just pay the bill and get out of there. Luckily I had the covers from the original swingarm to replace them and they fit fine.
So begins the process of putting this all back together....
I get the swingarm mounted after having to take some sand paper to the inside of spacer bushing so it would slide better. It mounts on fine and seems to fit just like it's supposed too.
I get the rear wheel on and the new axle nut adjusters to align the rear wheel are too tight for the axle. I have to take them out to the shed. Clamp them in a vise and burr it out so it will fit. With that little detail done the rear wheel goes on.
Next step will be putting the new front drive pulley on....
