« on: June 27, 2011, 02:26:53 pm »
im not near my manual and cant remember if there is an interval for checking the rear swingarm bolts, etc.  can someone confirm or deny and if so, list a quick n dirty procedure?  thanks in advance.

Nothing in the periodic maintenance section specifically about the swing arm.  Didn't see anything while skimming the swing arm section either.  Pretty much everything involved with suspension is on a 1year/7,500 mile interval.  Looks mostly like basic common sense stuff, make sure the bolts are tight, no leaks, lube chassis parts, etc.

You don't have an electronic copy of the FSM for your bike?
