The po left out a few details before I bought this plus the excitement of getting it I over looked quite a few things. The said po didn't place spacers on any of the exhaust brackets when he installed the Jardine cans. This in turn rubbed quite a hole in my swingarm and quite a bit off of the can itself. See attached images

To do this repair I had to take the swingarm off. The swingarm pivot adjustor were pretty loose. The axle nut not so much. I loosened the right side pivot adjustor and the swingarm came right out.
about an hour ago I reinstalled it and I cant find any torque settings for the swingarm pivot bolt or the adjustors. Also, how to I torque the adjustors?

Do you have the adjuster tool? the torque specs are in the service manual.

Find the right size metric hex head bolt that the hex head fits into the hex drive (pocket) of the head end of the pivot bolt. Get a nut as well and weld it onto the bolt....now you have an adjustment tool
