Doing the SP1-SP2 swingarm swap and I am needing the lock nut removal tool. Does anyone have one I can borrow? I'll cover the shipping.

If you have no luck finding one, you can get by using a drift punch and a careful hand.
I can't find mine either. :confused:

Sorry to drag up an old thread but did you use these homemade tools to torque the nuts back up, just wondering because in the manual it shows a tool with an offset 1/2" drive and to go through the centre of this socket to hold the pivot bolt whilst torqueing the nut. Is there a way round this with your homemade tools?

Cheers

I used it to torque the swingarm nut back up using the proper tool but the person i bought mine off said he usually sells the socket type tool similar to those above, which he makes himself on a lathe and they are a proper piece of kit as ive had a few off him for different bikes in the past

I bought this socket off ebay, (1st pic) it was fine for disassembly but according to the service manual is not right for assembly as you cant hold the pivot bolt/adjusting bolt whilst torqueing the lock nut.:frown2:

I have since found this other one. (2nd pic)
I think I will weld a piece of steel to the one I bought to make it the same.:wink2:

it was my own fault didn't search ebay well enough and bought it before I had even looked at the service manual.
You couldn't do me a favour could you and measure the distance from centre of the socket to the centre of the 1/2" drive hole so I can get it the same. Would be very much appreciated.
