    CRF70 TX swing arm help

    Hello,

    New here, and stripped a CRF70 down to the frame and am building it from scratch. I'm trying to do it one section at the time, and decided to start with the rear. I purchased the TRC One swingarm from TBolt. I am aware I am going to need to get a custom bracket created for the shock.

    My issue is, I am new to all this and am trying to learn. I've watched a few youtube videos and got the general concept down. But how am I supposed to put the bearings in on the swingarm. All the videos I could find are slightly different then what came with the swing arm.

    Can anyone help me with how I should be put it all together?

    CRF70 TX swing arm help

    The parts can only go in one place, bearing mount on outside. Bushings on inside. Stepped bushings are for shock mount

    So I think where I got confused was with the collars, but I heard from someone else saying I may not need to use these. To just press the bearings in, and the sleeves go in the center.

    The stepped bushing/collars push in on outside of shock mount. They are needed

    Yup, I agree. The issue I was having was where the collar bolts need to go. But apparently, I do not need them.
