See the bolt and the corresponding corrosion? Starting to see a pattern here?

your looks great...I pulled my swing arm about 2 months ago and I was shocked. My 06 has a bit over 26k on the clock and it was in dire need of some love.

After some research, here's what I settled on for grease.

I spent as much time as it took to really work it in the bearings.

And a light coat of grease on the bolt upon reassembly. Six bearings...3 on the shock pivot, and 3 on the swing arm.

Return the shock pivot to its normal upright position. If you have any problems, loosen the lower engine mount bolt shown just above where the pivot goes. It will slide right in.

Evidence that the chain has tangled with this cap off. I'll have to address this.

The chain needs some attention before the swing arm goes back up.

I have a 16 tooth sprocket that just came in, but I want to reassemble with the stock 15 tooth first to get some base data to compare to.
