Two different swingarm pivots reported?


Recommended Posts

Since "most" of our V11 (51%?) are assembled, could we settle on measuring the inside of the lock nut?

[edit: my chrome nut, 2000 Sport is ~20.3mm inside the lock nut.]

Y'all are saying 19mm and 22mm.  My caliper says 19.9 mm and 21.8 mm.  I would call the smaller one a nominal 20 mm.  Confirm that the locking nut is chromed on the smaller and stainless on the larger.

Not to worry, @Scud, I just hadn't taken the tape off that drain plug washer seat.  The paint (VHT Wrinkle Plus) does not need to be baked: take your pick, let dry or cure.  Instructions say that baking may make the crinckles smaller.  200F for an hour.  I baked.  :rasta:

 

You know that makes more sense and better aligns with my measurement which was done on the nut threads with the nut still fitted. I'd correct mine to 20mm then which aligns with the parts manual. Docc, you care to re measure yours. Remember the end of the chrome nut is a larger ID than the threaded section.

So does mine docc but that the outboard end of the nut which is actually machined to what is almost certainly the OD of the pin threads. I was earlier trying to measure the ID of the threaded end of the nut and add the pitch depth x 2 which is a bit of a guestimation way of doing things. Now I know the pin threads are a nominal 20mm then my measurements make more sense. 20mm pin on my bike no doubt. In 22 years this has never come up, amazing. Still things to learn. Probably find out that half the frames are made of Cr-Mo and half from cast iron next.
