swing arm removal tip.
I have had a hard time with removing the swing arm on more than one occasion. I had gotten some tips on here which made the task possible to complete but still the task has always been time consuming, knuckle busting, and to be quite frank very discouraging.
I have just managed to remove the "plugs" (for lack of a better name) within a fem minutes time instead of fighting really hard for each and every millimeter.
I took some pictures to help with a visual aid.
with use of m5 bolts and some washers from auto zone and a slide hammer from Harbor freight I was able to pop those suckers out with out losing more of my sanity.
