Maybe there's a trick to this, but I am having one hell of a time getting my swingarm installed in my frame. The stock frame is threaded on one end, unlike the aftermarket frame which utilizes a bolt for the swingarm pin. So if I'm using the right parts, I have two timken bearings and 2 spacers. The problem is that the spacers drop down when I put the swingarm in the frame so I can't push the pin through. If I had an aftermarket frame I could just put another pin in from the other side and use the other pin like a drift, but because it's thread I can't do that. Any tips?

In the shops we had a piece or rod or tubing the exact length from one spacer to the other holding everything in place. Best I can remember that shaft is 5/8".. Then tap the pivot shaft in to the swing arm as the dummy shaft slides out. Check the threads in the frame firts with the pivot shaft to make sure it will start threading into the frame first. Good luck..
