Default swing arm/frame help

Hey guys just got done doing my swing arm bearings and got it all back together and it looks like the swing arm bolt is not all the way in? You can see threads of the bolt between the frame n swing arm so if any of u guys have any pics of that area where i am talking about that would be great. I just want to make sure its right

Chuck

the side with the nut, i think you torque the stud to 12ft/lbs, and the nut to 125 i believe. its because of the bearing races, as long as you tightened it right its fine. one of mine is the same way

Yeah its normal to have a gap there, Like aaron said, just make sure it is torqued to spec, if it is done wrong it can actually spread your frame apart

Which would mean too much preload on your pivot bearings and they will not last.
