Just a hint, I found that if you turn the shaft around to the other side, it's easier to stab all the different holes in your brackets without the weight of the tire hanging down.

I think he's saying it is easier to run the axle bolt through from the right side instead of the left, that way when you 'stab all the different holes' (swingarm, rear brake, 2 wheel bearings, and other side of swingarm) you can hit the swingarm, rear brake, and the first wheel bearing without having to old up the wheel. Just a little easier.

Personally, I don't find the process difficult enough to turn the bolt around. I just use a Phobman Stand and put a 2x4 under the rear wheel. That lines everything up quite nicely for me.

Press Any Key To Continue.
