or make certain your OEM bolts are well lubricated.....
Replacing the OEM bolts is only part fo the problem. there may well be galvanitic corrosion with the cast aluminium swinging arm and the bolts, but there is also the opportunity for crap to enter the swinging arm and block the thread.

I can vouch for these I have a set I fitted them on Sunday and they look great, although I must admit the OEM ones were completely corrosion free (ACF50) and once loosened came away quite easily, so yep for the sake of 7:00 change them it makes sense,

Corrode in place, resulting in no adjustment, and an expensive /tricky drilling out process

Or if it happens when your bike is in for it's 12K service a whole new swingarm :017:

I had one shear off and i can honestly say it was a right pain in the ass to drill her out, if you cant lay your hand on a long series drill bit your buggered, its about 65mm from the end of the swingarm to the start of the thread thats approx the length of a normal 6.8 jobber drill bit and the tapped hole is around 35mm deep.
Ive got a new batch if anyone still wants a pair.
Cheers.

As with Blizzard one of mine was seized when I did my 12k service.

It is deffo a very long and arduous job drilling it out. Fortunately I was always going to remove the entire rear end of Tigger on the service to work not only on the swing arm but also rear suspension and rear of engine so it was drilled and Heli coiled on the bench. Also to note that the brake line bolts was also going the same way. Replaced all of these fixings with 316 bolts etc and then as per quality instruction coated with Moly grease. Even with copper grease from the 6k service they still went. Simple solution to the swing arm holes came by way of black Gaffer tape. On another ancillary note the chain rubbing strip was completely knac*ered. So they do need to be replaced every 6k miles but you only need the plastic bit not the bush or the rubber - this are still original. On strip down I found very little grease but no significant wear in the swing arm pivot, suspension bones or rear axle it was only marginal on the ali bushes on both front and rear axles but the seals were still good. Copper grease is fine on most of the bike it is just the swing arm area that need this level of attention.

Sorry to go slightly off topic chaps but Im sure you get the drift.

Cheers

Well happy with mine. One of the old ones was "almost" seized. Took over 2 hours of careful winding back and forwards and a load of WD40 to get it out. New bolts are greased up like a cheap  breakfast.   :001:
