Maybe I need a pic of this in order to follow or a step by step.
Assume the swingarm pin is already reversed from standard, so that the nutted end is on the chain side.
Break free the drive sprocket lock nut.
Break free the swingarm pin's nut, but don't remove it, just break it free - it being a fairly high torqued nut.
Break free the rear axle nut, same song as above.
Get rear wheel off ground with swingarm unloaded, to permit later removal of rear wheel.
Blocking or a centre stand will be needed to enable this.
A swing arm lift race stand is not to be used!
Remove the rear hugger.
Remove the sideplate that hold the pegs and shifter mechanism.
Depending on how you support the bike, you may not even have to take the shifter assembly off the plate or the tranny input shaft.
Remove the drive sprocket cover.
Remove the rear wheel.
Remove the swingarm pin nut and washer.
Break free the engine side plate bolts, remove them, then slide the plate off along the swingarm pin guide path.
You can now slide off the drive sprocket with the chain on, then lift the chain off the teeth, and simply remove the endless riveted chain from the bike.
Likewise, a new endless riveted chain can be fitted.
Not lost on me is that Honda put all the big end nuts on the right side of the bike, as in both axles and the swingarm pin.
There is no engineering need nor advantage to do so.
Swapping the swingarm pin end for end also allows one to do a really good pin and frame pin tube cleaning job, and grease with lithium grease (it being more water repellent over time).
This is an ease of future work item, for those that keep their bikes many years or live in humid areas near the sea.
Does the above cover it adequately?
