Default sacrilege ???

ok so the motorcycle racer in me has to positively secure things that will hurt you if they come apart... so some 5/8 stainless steel castle nuts and a trip to the mill to punch some holes for R clips... add a scoche of safety wire and wala

the added bonus of an R clip s that if you safety the R clip to the swingarm then the axle cant rotate loose either !! dont forget to wire the R clip closed as well...

now to machine up some 7075 washers to spread the load... check that.. found some 6061 spacers that i had made earlier and just used a piece of tube to sleeve them down to 5/8 and left a lip to use a 316 stainless washer to face the nut and peened the sleeve over to capture the washer...

Front AND rear!!
