    Swingarm removal help

    Hi,

    Was wondering if the castle nut on swingarm is left hand thread or not ?

    Don’t fancy tugging away in the wrong direction.


    Cheers

    If you can borrow an impact gun then it makes castlenut removal significantly easier. I found it almost impossible to remove it with a socket wrench, but that could be down to technique.
