SwingArm Wear/Repair

I have a 1981 YZ 465 that has excess free play in the swingarm where the shock attaches. When you lift up the rear wheel you can see the movement and hear it click. Has anyone else addressed this?

I'm wondering about drilling out the holes bigger and using a sleeve or inserts? I have had no luck finding any kind of kit. Somebody has to have addressed this in the past with the aluminum wear? I do plan on replacing the bolts and whatever else it needs. I cannot upload a picture but could email it somewhere?

Thanks for any help or ideas!

On my '80 it's had about 1/8" play for a decade or so. It also has a steel insert as well.

You'll need to upload the photo to an online service like smugmug,flicker or photobucket and link to it from there.
you don't see luggage racks on a hearse..........act accordingly
