swingarm bushes

Post  mark.l on Mon 15 Dec - 4:32

Help needed,I am bringing back a Townmate from the dead and I have not taken the swingarm off yet but I want to replace the bushes in the frame where the swinger attaches,I know there are two of them. Does anyone know if both bushes are the same?
A J Sutton only list one?
Thanks in advance,Mark

Yes the same bush, its not clear on A J Sutton web site if they are sold as a pair as in diagram it shows them bracketed with a figure 1. Would asking before you order as at £12.88 ea they are not cheap.
If you know the size (from an old one) you may be able to get them from Robush http://www.robush.co.uk/default.cfm cheaper.

Anyone know how to get these bushes out?
My pivot bolt has sheared off it was seized in there solid so I've now got to somehow find a new pivot bolt (discontinued) and remove the sheared one!
Any help will be greatly appreciated!

The swinging arm bolt is a standard bolt see this previous thread http://yamahatownmatet80.forumotion.co.uk/t740-replacement-swing-arm-bolt?highlight=Swinging+arm+bolt
As for removing bushes, difficult. The one on my bike is like yours seized so I just leave it until such time as the swinging arm breaks or rusts through.
The only way then is to cut the swinging arm off near the pivots, unscrew the LH side bit off the bolt, cut off the head at the opposite end then with a suitable nut & some spacers try and pull the remains of the bolt out. A few clouts with a hammer whilst under tension may help. If it wont move then heat needs to be applied which in turn will destroy the bushes, & you may then end up with the outer parts of the bushes still stuck in the frame. You would than need to use a steel rod to knock them free.
Not an easy job & one if it goes wrong could end up with a damaged frame as well.
If you do get bushes out OK new ones are available from Suttons
Best of luck
