swingarm spindles

Dose anyone have any fotos of installed swingarm spindles, or can tell me where is the best place to put them on? Because I cant find the supposed to be there hole to screw them into...

Also I was given M8 bolts but on an internet search it seems they should be M6 but I think I will be having to drill and thread my own holes so this might not matter....

Anything anyones got will help, because I just had to ask before I start drilling holes into my swingarm.....

Assuming you're working on a 919, there aren't any factory supplied holes for swingarm spools, you can either drill and tap your own holes or PitBull stands sells weld on bungs for mounting spools.

I made up aluminum blocks and had them welded on, the spools then mounting to the blocks.

Do you have any pics? Or measurements for locating the blocks?

I lost your e mail address.
Ping your e mail and I'll send you the drawing and picture.
You'd be able to knock off the same work in a flash.

I bought some cheap spools on Amazon, M8 bolts I think. I'll be tapping a hole in each side of the swingarm sometime this winter, methinks.

Too busy riding right now.
