Does anyone know what the bolt thats holding this bracket is for? It sits above the axel nut and uses a allen key to get it off. Im talking about the black one! Thanks!!






Thanks to whom ever this picture belongs to!

Oh!! Whew!!! :oops:


I was scared! I loosened the bolt today because I was thinking of doing the Mod in the picture. I want to get a side mount lisence plate bracket. When I put the bolt back in, I dont think I tightened it as much as I could have. I didnt think much about it and continued my day. I rode the bike into work tonight and just realized that I probably didnt tighten it enough. I was scared the a wheel would fall off or something!! :D

My bike is an 07' so its metal! And I'm pretty sure I tightened it enough to hold the fake swingarm on till I get home! Thanks guys!!

Also, the bracket that he used for his bike doesnt have a big enough hole to get that bolt into. Anyone know of a good way to make that hole bigger without damaging the bracket?

Use a "step" drill bit

I used a long circular file and stuck it in my drill and filed it down. Took about a minute.
