  2. Ciao Guest, ALERT FOR Store purchases - riding season is here, so we know everyone wants it yesterday. However, lead times are long and many things are sold out or back-ordered, and there isn't much we can do to rush anything. Always best to buy off Season when things are in stock. Also, there are many seasonal holidays this time of year, both here and in Europe (particularly the Italian August Holiday month), so please be patient! We aren't Amazon. We do our best to get things out as quickly as possible, and we also aren't in control of things like customs & weather delays, etc. Please note GuzziTech and the GTM Store is largely a ONE man operation. Requests for phone calls will be deleted. We are online only. Orders are currently being shipped once or twice a week. You can always sign into the online Store system to check the status.

    That looks the same as my 1400 so I don’t think anything is missing. It does look like they buggered up the threads which they should fix or buy you another axel.

    Are you sure there is no lock nut?
    Thanks for your answer.

    Is there an actual nut on there??? IMO, a must have purchase is one of the Aprilia titanium axle nuts. Stands up to impact wrenches, and won't round off the shoulders. AF1 makes it easy on their MG pages...

    Yes - there's no locknut, just good old fashioned friction holding a big nut in place. It's recessed into the swingarm so difficult to make out in the picture but you can just see it. Not sure how the damage to the end of the axle occurred but it appears to be on the chamfering and not the thread, so no real damage except cosmetic. It would be easy to clean up with a small file and if the threads were impacted in some way, unscrewing the nut would help clean them up.

    You may want to verify that the flat washer is installed under that 32mm axle nut. If you are not at ease check the torque spec. Dress the threads with a metric thread file.

    Looks like they belted it with a drift to knock the axle out.

    Looks like they don't know much about mecanic, but it was 430$ cheaper then the dealer.
