Question lefthand thread help

Hey All;

Need help. Im removing the swingarm and remember somewhere that the front pivot
bearings are right hand thread on right side and left hand on the left side.(14mm ones)
True?
The memory is a terrible thing to waste.

Thanks.

Re: lefthand thread help

It's been a while since I pulled a swing arm but I do not remember any left hand thread action.

No, they are all right hand thread.

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

It doesn't suck as much as not getting older!
