Ever break your rear set mount?

Anyone ever had this happen? This was the first ride I took the bike out for .... ever.




I found that what had caused the break was that the after market rear set did not seem to work with the oem spacer. The spacer was about 3/16” too short. By tightening the spacer bolt the rear set was twisting and torquing down on an angle which caused the swing arm pivot to break.

Nice to have a shop to repair it in. Whole point is (and the reason I bothered to post this) that I think it is important to be careful to avoid side torque on the mount bolt. I also think its nice to see that the repair is not that big a deal. Took me max an hour so even if you had to take a repair to a shop it won't break the bank.

Don't forget the rearset has to be able to rotate freely on the pivot
