I have a 2010 Heckler. The swing arm pivot loosens by the end of almost every ride. Any suggestions on how to keep it tight? Thanks.

Have you loc-tite'd it? Did you use a torque wrench on it to reinstall?

My current generation swingarm has been trouble free. The first install/removal had the wedge stick on and spin out with the axle, but from then on I have used loc-tite on the treads and grease on the wedge. IMO this is about the least fussy of any pivot hardware I have used.

No Loctite. This is a new '10 replacement swing arm installed by SC on my '08 frame. I'll tear it down and apply the Loctite. Thanks for the feedback.
