I would like to suggest that every one consider replacing the 4 swing arm pivot bolt with 6" X 5/8" bolts and tighten them very tight so that the caps on the end and the spacer become one with frame so that the bearings in the swing arm and bearings pivot on the spacer and not the spacer on the bolt. You may also want to put a zerk in the middle of each mounting bracket. The 6" bolt assures there is enough shank to pass through both mounting tabs. You will need some washers also.

6" X 5/8" bolts are readily available and much less expensive that M16 bolts that probably don't have the 100mm (min) shank.

At a minimum. go tighten the bolts you have, very tight!!!!! Add some grease too.


Photos later, maybe

16mm = 0.629 921 259 84 inch

5/8 " = 0.625 inch

that's a difference of 0.00492125984"

0.004 921 259 84 inch = 0.124 999 999 94 millimeter

I used 5/8 X 6" bolts with washers so the shanks can go clear through mount tabs.

I did buy some 16mm X 140mm bolts, but the shank wasn't long enough, so I sent them back.

Just before I went on the ride where I broke my output shaft I checked all my bolts. These were loose so I tightened them and stripped them so I can visually see when the start to loosen. Jeffs suggestion is definitely a better long term solution.

      I think the front wheel bearings need replaced. Lately i've noticed some noise from the front end while driving.. jacked it up and both sides have considerable play. The passenger side more so. Kawasaki 92045-1170 replaces the bearing. its 2 per hub. which is 4. it's 25 bucks PER BEARING. which is $100 and some change for both sides. Kawasaki lists that the bearing used  is a  60/22 2RS ball bearing. i can find them anywhere from $5 to $10, BUT i question the quality, no country of origin is disclosed.
       Pivotworks.com has a front set but its $42 for each side. 42+42= 84, so thats better than 100..... any one ever bought anything from pivot works?
       I checked the local auto parts stores for the bearing but nada.

      Hi there. Has anyone run across any higher quality rear swing arm bushings for the troopers?

      I can’t find good documentation anywhere on what size bolt I need to attach a snow plow to the frame below the winch. Does anyone know where I can find the answer to this? I have a hisun vector 500 and it’s a 2017
