How hard is it to change swingarms? I know I have to remove the rear suspension, tire, ect... Will I need any special tools? any special tricks, suggestions?

Right now I have my oem swingarm with extensions and replacing it with a oem swingarm. My swingarm with extensions, rear bracket that the brake caliper rest on was grind down so the wheel will not hit it.
Thanks for any help.

overall not hard, biggest thing is to supend the bike without worrying about it falling over.
I used a jack stand under each rearset (though i have aftermarket) this might not work with stock.
loosen all the bolts/nuts prior to lifting the bike.
as for the castle nut on the axle bolt, i have used a modded socket or one from cyclegear or even a tap and hammer to loosen it...

Thanks Bro, That was the main thing I was worried about is tipping over. I was thinking about using some straps and suspending over a beam in the ceiling. I will have to check Cyclegear for that socket.

Thanks,
