Removal of hub securing bolts from F4 750 swingarm

All,


I am considering removing the two bolts from the swingarm that secure the rear hub in place. These bolts will be removed carefully and I will remove the bolts by loosening one half a turn and then loosening the other half a turn until they are both removed. They will be removed for around a week whilst the bike sits on the paddock stand in the garage.


I am considering this as I intend having the bolts zinc passivated. I would apprciate thoughts on whether this is likely to reset or adjust the hub in any way.


Cheers

Should be fine if it is just sitting there.

Thanks silent and a follow up question is if i remove one of the bolts from the bottom of the front caliper for around an hour (the lower most bolt that marrys up the two parts of the caliper), if you were a betting man do you think fluid would leak out of the 'split' that may have very partially opened up in the caliper?

Even if the hub shifts you can still just adjust the chain when done..... easy job.

Don't press the brake lever while you have the caliper bolt out....

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

just your attention to potential problems lends itself to being an engineer. Also you might consider getting some titanium bolts

I am an engineer of sorts, when I mentioned 'cheap bolts' they would of course be for non load bearing items and the bike wouldn't be used

If the hub is out there really isn't a need to put bolts in, but if you feel the need to do it there are many forum members who would give you 2 bolts. Chris and Andrew are both in the same part of the world and probably have them
