There's almost no point in calling a local dealer looking for something like that. The only part for an XR that my dealer has EVER had in stock was the oil filter. Most of those places, oemparts, service honda, etc., aren't gping to have it laying on the shelf but I've never waited more than 9-10 days for anything and often it's faster than that. It's only been a month since I ordered the same part.

Looks just like my disassembly; cardboard on the floor. Its a pretty messy job.

What kind of case saver is that? Can you give us a close up? I just like the color, but was wondering if it offers other advantages over the xrso.

XRR Rear Axel Adj Repair

The chain adjusting bolts snapped off in the swingarm, due to corrosion on the threads.
All I can say is thank goodness for the SwingArm Buddy!

The most difficult (and most important) part of the procedure is drilling out the broken bolts. You have to work your way up to with two smaller diameter drill bits before using the 3/8" bit provided in the kit. At least one of the smaller bits needs to be extra-long, otherwise your it will not clear the swingarm and you will drill crooked. Also critical, is making a very deep center punch mark - in the center of the broken bolt. I hit the center punch several times to be sure to get a deep punch mark. The finished 3/8" hole must be centered in the swingarm... not a procedure for the squeamish!

The kit makes a very solid repair and I applied anti-seize to the new adjusting bolts. The only down-side to the kit, is the new bolts are 5/16" american, which means you have to use a 1/2 wrench to adjust your chain, which may mean having to pack an extra wrench in your tool kit, although you might still get away with using a 13mm metric.

The steel insert is slightly over-sized compared to the 3/8" drill bit, so it is a good press fit into the swingarm.

If you keep fresh anti-seize on them the time won't ever come.

That happened to me TWICE. Had to get the torch out and heat them up to get it to break loose.
always wondered if there was a fix if they broke. Thanks for the info.

Heard if you drill a 1/8 inch hole in the bottom of the swing arm it would drain the water that seeps in and it won't happen as often or be as bad - Is that true???

Later, Chuck

I drilled weep holes on my 2002 XRR, you could hear the water sloshing in the swingarm before I drilled it. Bolts came out and I anti-seized them, stayed good with the weep holes.

Thanks for sharing that fix Buell78753, didn't know that was available!!

You're welcome for the answer and pic of the Hinson basket.
