Question on stretched bike and swing arm plate holder?

Hello,

I have a stretched 2006 gsxr 600, and recently got a swing arm plate holder. The problem is now with the plate holder on the bike the rear axle bolt does not screw down enough to clear the hole to drop the locking pin in. Is it possible to get a little longer than stock rear axle bolt?

tightened it as much as i could, don't want to do torque wrench and over tighten. the stretch because the normal drop in that the rear axle have for the nut is no longer there because of the adapter.

Try taking the washer out if you're still using it

What would be the down side to taking the washer out? Friction, bearings?

Thanks.

Ok.. Can you see the hole? Even a little bit, of it's the cotter pin type of bolt hole

Try backing it up a bit, might magically appear.

Or be a man and get a normal swing arm?


I did
Hear stretched arms caused a lot of issues.

That's why women like them, they have similar characteristics :p

lol if you like stretched bikes.. its your thing. do what you want.

dont over tighten the rear axle bolt btw, it squeezes the swingarm onto the washers into the bearings and causes the bearing to not spin as freely. but you would have to really try hard to over tighten it.

Taking the washer out won't hurt anything.

A lot of what you can do depends on who made the stretch blocks. Some kits will let you go back to the stock adjuster blocks which are usually thinner and have the shaped cut out for the other end of the axle.


Pm me your number if you have any questions
