The problem being they have no money. They live hand to mouth.

If this be the case, respect. And they are worthy of support. To belittle and stomp on our own takes us nowhere forward.

I saw these pictures on another forum. Someone posted it there asking for advice. It is clear from the pictures posted that the back side of the inside of each side of the swing arm had been damaged (I never knew a swing arm had so many sides). On the picture taken of the left side you can clearly see the indentation of the swing arm adjuster/pivot bolt in the grease back plate. The right side does not have such a back plate. The housing for the shaft comprises the back plate. And you can see similar indentations. Both are damaged. The left side is not a problem. In my opinion the right side will have to be bent back and welded up. 

I am of the opinion that this happened either because an incorrect bolt (meaning too long) had been turned in there, or when it was fitted the thrust sleeves were not replaced and subsequently there was nothing to stop the bolts at a certain point and they kept turning further. In both the above the person who did the turning merrily kept on turning.

The first picture is taken off the net and it shows the applicable parts, 1 being the grease back plate, 2 the thrust sleeve and 3 the bolt.

A nasty error. Yes, sometimes the manual can be of assistance, if only to point out to you about certain parts and to remind you that you may be missing something. Do not disregard the manual. Me think that whoever did this, worked without a manual and did it as a novice.

Since I had problems with the indicators, I started with checking the switch. In order to get to the wires of the indicator switch I was to take off the light switch, which is a ball and spring setup – not my favourite.

Here is a step by step pictorial as to that setup. And the patience that went with it to get all back and not to lose the ball and or spring.

My testing light told me that there was good continuity.

I continuously worked on the electrics. The tooters, indicators and brake light did not work. Since the fairing was absent and two or more wires had been altered and wires had been added it was an absolute nightmare to go by the diagrams provided by the manuals. I wish to thank @billy-joe for taking the trouble to photograph what he has on his bike. It gave me a few helpful indicators cues.

I had made myself a very rudimentary and utterly costless testing light with which to test continuity. To figure out where which wires go and end up. Again it won’t win any awards at the primary school expo, but it did the trick.
