    4-Banger Lower Swing Arm Removal

    I'm working on changing all the bearings in my 4 Banger, and I haven't quite figured out how to get the lower swing arm off the frame. The bike is the later design with no pinch bolts. I have the pivot pin removed, but the pivot part of the frame (and it looks like some spacers) are "inboard" of the swing arm flange; that is, the bearing sits inside the arm a bit, and the pivot on the frame is as wide as that inside part. So the bearing housing forms a lip around the pivot portion of the frame.

    Is there some trick I'm not aware of to get more parts out of the frame or something? Thanks to anyone who can help.

    Problem resolved with the age-old trick of "pry harder." Once I could see that the spacers were able to move, I managed to just pull it off by hand with more oomph.
