Re: Z1B Swinging Arm Pivot bolt

I have upset someone for not posting my findings and concluding this post. I apologise for this and will conclude now. The swinging arm had two Aluminium bushes installed with no spacer tube. On the outside of that was two shim washers, one at either end. The spindle was hollow with an internal thre...

Re: Needle bearing conversion

Hi Johny, sorry if I have upset you but I don't know how! If you look back the post you are referring to you will see that I thanked you at the time. The information you gave me was not how my swinging arm pivot had been modified so you didn't actually help me solve my problem but I still thanked yo...

Has anyone changed the swinging arm bushes for needle bearings on a Z1B. If so is it worth doing?

Re: Z1B Swinging Arm Pivot bolt

Thank you for your help. Firstly the threaded inserts aren't welded in. I have tried inserting a plate into the slots and tried to turn the insert but it wouldn't turn. I've tried this on both ends. The spindle is hollow and I've tried screwing in one of the bolts and giving it a smack but it didn't...

They appear to thread into split threaded bushes in the frame. Has any one came across this arrangement before. I...
