Replacing Chain Adjusters on DL650
I think that I have slightly crushed my chain adjusters inside the swingarm on my DL650 because the axle nut, when tight, goes a little past the cotter pin hole.
I have bought replacement adjusters.
The bike has a center stand. If I support the back wheel with a block of wood the right thickness, will I be able to slide the axle out, change the chain adjusters, and slide the axle back in without having the spacers and anything else fall off?
I have read all the threads on removing the rear wheel, and hope that I can avoid all of the fiddling around to line everything up that falls off, because I don't actually want to remove the wheel.
