Alright I haven’t seen any topics on this problem, so here it goes. I was changing my sprocket today and I noticed on my chain adjuster bolt on the sprocket side, the chain adjuster bolt’s threads were literally too small for the swingarm. The bolt had about 2mm of wiggle room all the way around, and the only thing holding it was the tension. I’ve been riding it since I got it like this for months and it’s held up super strong, what the hell should I dosideways

Are the threads in the swingarm jacked up or are the bolts too small?
If it's the bolts being too small, just go get the proper size bolts.

X2. Order the OEM adjuster bolts. If its still sloppy then youll have to install a thread insert(ez-lok or similar). With that much slop id say the threads are beyond saving

If the threads are messed up, run a tap through them to clean them up. If that doesn’t do it, tap them a size bigger and get corresponding bolts.
