Swingarm Pinch Gap

319 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?

Stupid me, for a moment I thought I had to keep tightening till the gap closes :ROFLMAO:
On the SC60 it's a single pinch bolt. A dealership destroyed the bolt threads right at that gap when they replaced the chain on my 2014.
Destruction is a likely scenario when you go to a dealer, in many cases the techs are as dumb as a box of rocks. I stay the f away. Even bought my own lift so I can...
