Why not just cam the bearing holder back?

The pin that holds the brake stay is too low. Cammig it back doesn't change that. It does help get the rear bolt in.

I was finally making some progress on this til I ran into fit issues on the swingarm. The chain sliders and the brake caliper specifically.  The brake caliper is gonna be tricky to bolt up.  I'm gonna have to try putting the bolt in before I put the brake stay on.  Chain adjustment will be limited as welll


Have a brake stay plate machined with a diff index so the caliper is rotated back more.  Wat probs do u have wid chain sliders?

Nothing real solid. I don't think he was fully understanding it. He said back when mine was made, they were using 400ex brakes, carrier and axle a lot. He never told me that when I bought it. It does explain the gap between the swingarm and the brake stay. The 400ex and 450r carriers are narrower so he made it to fit them all. He said he would move the pin higher if I wanted but I just spent $180 on powder coating.  I found a picture of yours. Looks like the pin is welded on higher on yours.

 The holes that mount the slider are way off forcing it too far forward into the countershaft sprocket.  The pin that locates the slider centered with the countershaft sprocket was way off as well.  It is designed to use a 400ex slider which I bought with it from Koq.  The rear slider does not line up but I think with some washers and shimming I can get it.   Looks like it will be rubbing on the top side of the rear slider.

I'll pop the one off my 400ex for you to try.

I didn't see this on the website. What brake stay is this?  What does it take to get this to work?  Might be the way to go if that's all I have to buy.

I'm gonna try to get the caliper on and see how much chain adjustment I have. I'm gonna have to shave down the head of a bolt and shave down a wrench too.

Michael, that is the caliper.  if you look at the race tech site they have a drawing showing all dimensions so you know the proper bolt centers.

I was able to get the caliper on after shaving a bolt head down to 3/16" thick and finding a slim 13mm wrench.  It looks like there will be plenty of chain adjustment. Still not thrilled with the quality of this swingarm, but I think it's gonna work.

instead of shaving the bolt head . could you put a stud in or cut the head of that bolt off an weld it an drill the caliper threw an use a nut on the outside .
