WRONG, Scottie - I have a much cooler-looking acorn nut on the repair side! ;D

Seriously - thanks a bunch!

LMAO!  You got me there.   ;)   No problem bud!

Finished.  Swing arm, with new Hagon shocks (and K70 rear tire!), installed:



Thanks, as usual, for all your help, guys!  I haven't taken a ride yet, since I am again, momentarily, without a fuel tank on the bike. 

Bulletman, what's your status?
Hey Matt, I was done a few days ago, Its all put together along with the New Hagons, Man she handles really well...Im very impressed..I have a new post going on about the Front Wheel Wobble Going on after the install..Scottie wrote up a awesome piece on it..its on the forum a few tags back under Wobble..the next step is to check alignment since the swingarm job...I will be free to do some of that in a few days...I am glad you are done matt.
Cheers
Mark

So did the cause of these post breaking end up being over torquing in both cases

In my case Thats a Yes..and in Matts Case I know he will speak for himself but the answer is yes....be very careful when torquing ! the specs in the manual are wrong
