From the looks of it, It seems that I have to remove the swingarm to replace the slider? Just want to verify before I did into it.

The swing arm doesn't require removal to R&R the slider. Refer to W/shop manual if you can - or if you have a close look you will see that it's a very simple process to replace the slider.

NO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


One bolt. And I think I may have disconnected the spring on the side stand.

That's it. Old one slides off new one slides in. Let me see if I can find the thread where I posted pictures.

The slider is captured by one bolt. I did remove the side stand bolts (2 of them) and swing that out of the way.
It's a 15 minute exercise that might give you better piece of mind or save you some real heart-ache.


Look at how they're constructed. No need to remove swingarm.

I should probably look at the service manual first, but...

I just take off the retaining bolt, remove the back wheel ('cause I'm usually doing a chain/sprocket replacement at the same time anyways), tug the old sucker out of there and shove the new one in.  I don't think it is the proper way Yamaha says to do it, but it ain't that hard either. I'm not going to go through pulling the swingarm or other parts when it isn't necessary.

On the other hand, if you didn't replace the seal guard (why did they call it that, anyways?) soon enough... maybe you need to take the swing arm off anyways to do some JB Weld repairs...

I just did this for the first time. Super easy. One bolt through the slider (aka seal guard) and two to move the kickstand out of the way then the old slider just comes out and the new one goes in. Three bolts go back in--I used blue locktite on them. Done deal.

+1 -- Absolutely no need to take off swing arm (but not a bad idea if maintenance is due).

Definitely take the few extra minutes to remove the side stand. Makes job much easier.

Don't forget to inspect underside of swing arm while slider is off.
