I'm genuinely interested in your 10 but I'm unsure about the spools.

Are the threads there to put new ones in or does the swingarm need to be replaced? Just wanna know what I have ahead of me because that would put a damper on doing chain maintenance and rear tires.

I agree. I wasn't knocking the bike.

Just weighing my options. I know I'm gonna buy a 3rd gen for sure. I can either buy one locally or fly to where the OP is. Just trying to get a better understanding is all.

I use pitbull stand that has the reversable swingarm holders (one side is for spools, other side holds the swingarm up underneath with rubber pieces with direct conact)

No problems with taking the wheel off or cleaning the chain

What The spool threads? That's not a buying decision. You can use a stand that goes under the swing arm to mess with the tire and chain.

Wow dude...


GLWS OP it's priced right!

So how is that not a buying decision? Am I going to just assume everything's ok after he mentioned it? Do you drive 10 hours to buy a bike without looking at it or asking questions? I merely needed clarification since there were no pictures of the issue that he took the time to mention. I've never owned a 10 so I didn't know if paddle stands we're possible (or stable) with the hard angles of the swingarm.

I guess questions aren't welcome to serious buyers. I'm sorry for asking.
