I found the dreaded crack at the axle hole in the swingarm of my 2000 Roadglide. It's a known issue with '99-2001 baggers, happened to a couple other guys I know.
Rather than weld mine, I want to replace it with a later model, stronger swingarm and 1" axle from an '05. Anybody done this swap?
I got a deal on the '05 swingarm, wheel, axle, brake caliper, etc. from a friend who did a trike conversion. One thing I'm not sure about is the pivot shaft. Anybody know if it's the same size on the '00 and '05?
And, can I use the original '00 wheel with 1" bearings?
I will be replacing all bushings and bearings, etc. while I'm in there. Anything else I should know or look out for?
Thanks in advance.
