And fail... It looks like the bearing is spinning freely but is fused to the shaft so it can spin pretty easily... but wont move a hair laterally.

I really hammered the fuck out of it too. Dead blow, framing hammer, it doesn't matter.

Gonna put it on the back burner for now, soak it in deep creep every day, and move on to something else. Got plenty to do before I absolutely need it apart.

Got more bits in the mail today too \o/


Chain actually weighs close to that of the 530, but the sprockets are WAY lighter.
I can't believe this fucker got to me so fast either...

Cool, I did the same on my cbr. Mainly because the bulbs burned through but it also gives a cool blue white light.

Finally...


Unholy corrosion...




I did score a replacement spindle with left and right side bolts for a VERY excellent price. But there's a sleeve inside the swinger that the spindle slides into and the corrosion is pretty obvious. As well as in that needle bearing race

I'm thinking go a little nuts with a metal pipe cleaner chucked into a drill? Or a very small flap wheel if they make them... Score it down to bare metal and make sure it's thoroughly lubed? The needle bearings themselves appear to be functional and once I rinse the debris out they should be just fine to repack.

Cleaned up the swinger too.

Gonna spend a week sanding it... by hand...

And then the frame...
Then the wheels...
Then paint...
Then? THEN!? Reassembly!

Right, somewhere in there I have to buy some gaskets and clean up the engine. But realistically that doesn't need to happen till later :p

Any idea how much material I can take off these casting marks without degrading the arm?

it could be that one side of the brakes wasnt working properly.

if at least one motorcycle wasnt irreparably harmed in the creation of the bike, its not a streetfighter!

Those are just casting marks from the sand mold, should be able to take them down flush with the rest of the arm with no problems.

The new ones are still shiney :p Used as shit, dark, grubby rear and front left. I did make sure the pistons in the calipers moved freely as well. Didn't seem to have any drag the few weeks it was on the road either.

Do yourself a favour and put at least a bit of old inner tube to protect the chrome.
