i had same problem the bolt is seized to the coller between the bearings, i pounded the bolt nut side with nut on till end of threads so nut will come off after u get it to pound toward frame, hadto beat it hard with big hammer. then cut headof bolt off then as close to frame witout hitting it, grinder is what i used then pounded with another bolt old one i had around that is same as one u cut to use to pound it back to cut other side. then kept punding back and forth then drilled one side of bolt so the wall of the old bolt is thin, u need to pound bolt over enough so one side of swingarm will almost come out but line back up and tap bolt in enough to keep swingarm straight and then drill the side that is sticking out or level with frame, start small drill and just 1-2 inches in is far enough when drilling, keep going up till almost no bolt wall, there is hole in centre of bolt so no guessing center start a little bigger then hole and drill slow with oil or u will burn up bits. when drilled tap bolt back till swingarm drops and u should be able to bend end of bolt still in frame, twist and shake it and a bar should get it, but dont give up i had to do it on 2001, shop would of charged alot, if u have torches and good it would take no time, but then i ordered a bolt, nut, and coller, also roller for chain, saved everything else. or put nut on and leve it but just going to get worse i started throwing my chain and it broke my engine around front sprocket so when i got that fixed i did not care what it took but had bearings and was changing, but u just use alot of antisieze on everything when u put together, better then grease. but clean off threads and locktight when nut goes on. good luck and will be worth it in the end. if anyone has better idea it would help alot of people but i did this and know it can be done, need to remove axle and lower shock arm to do this

i put a propane torch on the bolt to heat as much as possible u have to crush colleror destroy old bearing but dont worrie about damaging swingarm it will be fine but i really pounded it thought i was going to break something but just damaged the parts u are replacing dont ccut bolts till u get them moving back and forth enough to get the side with the nut in as far as u can once u get it moving enough cut a bit off with nut side out as far as it will go then pound it back and she should drop on one side will check later to see your progress but beat on her just put wood or something to protect sprocket or something u might hit by mistake because i was just swinging for dear life lol

If all else fails slip a sawzall blade in between the frame and swing arm, you should be able to cut it off. I had to do this after the bolt was seized solid.

they all tend to do this i had to tourch mine out and use a sawzall.. be sure to get the old bearings all the way out if u torch them they will melt to the inside of the swingarm causing further problems
