To those w/out single sided swingarm monsters, make sure the bolt used to adjust your chain tension/rear wheel alignment is tight after your tighten your alxe nut, to avoid turning your rear wheel on a lathe and bending your swingarm.



In other news, guess whose got a hot new DIY lightweight wheel?!?!? Who needs magnesium when you can just lathe off those uneeded OZs of aluminum.

Yes, we all have to learn somewhere, but to be fair this is far from my first rodeo. The bolt was tight, just not tight enough to prevent it from vibrating loose over the lask ~1k miles. As someone who who has many friends who work at dealerships, and has been offered a job as a dealership mechanic, I am well aware that they make just as many mistakes as I do.

I've watched a porter drive a car with no oil out of the shop, seizeingthe engine, then watched the mechanic break the engine loose, fill it up with oil, and hand the keys back to the customer.

Not busting your chops. We all have to learn but there are certain steps that should be followed regardless of the complexity of the service.
