So far you have asked how to put oil in the bike, how to remove the clutch cover, and now to install your swing arm. Sounds to me like you are tearing the bike apart without any direction. You really need to get a service manual. It will save you time and money from screw ups and having to stop and ask what to do.

I think I said that over a week ago regarding the first question. BUY A REPAIR MANUAL!!! Read it thoroughly and then go back and if you run into a snag, read it again, and if that don't work then ask questions on this forum.

Installing a swing arm is very simple, all you have to do is try it and you will figure it out as you go. It's just one of those very simple things that's hard to describe.

crf450 powerd 1988 Tecate, my +4 a-arms,
stock kfx450r front shocks, +1 houser antivibe stem,durablue axle, stock revalved rear shock
and blingstar propeg nerfs.

2003 Banshee with to much to list.

2007 CRF450r stock motor, RG3 suspension.
