Swingarm Pinch Gap

316 Views 11 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Bevo
On my 2023 CB1000R:

When adjusting the chain, I loosened the pinch bolts, but when tightening back, I noticed there is a gap in the swingarm bearing hub that remains after the pinch bolts are tightened.. I didn't notice this gap before I loosened the bolts, so not sure if there is supposed to be a gap there or not..
can anyone confirm? It seems that the gap is by design. If thats the case, wont it attract dirt?

Great, this makes me feel really confident in bringing my CB in for its 600 mile service.

Yeah, I'm planning to do all the maintenance myself, but I figured the dealership should get a good look at the machine one last time, assuming their checking for loose fasteners, etc.
