98 xt600e swingarm bolt tight
I have completely taken apart my xt600 to do a powder coat on the frame and swingarm. I have also ordered brand new bearings, bushes and seals for the main bolt.
Now I have put everything back together with the new parts, but the main swing arm bolt that goes through the engine casing is tight. I can't get it through all the way out of the back and then it is very tight.
I have measured the bearing casings through which the bolt passes, and they do not align perfectly and the same thing happens even with the old bearings and bushes.
I wanted to know if this normal or something to worry about and if the heat used with powder coating can warp the swing arm.
