Oh, now I think I know what you did. You just pushed the pivot shaft out and you still have this big threaded adjustment collar in the frame and it is holding up the swingarm. Put the pivot shaft back in so you can unscrew the adjustment collar. Here is a pic of the setup.

Yep! Exactly what I was trying to say. I just did this now before I saw this post and realized that collar was threaded into the frame. I just don't really get the point of that setup. And that collar nut is only there to hold that tight once the swing arm is assembled, but you can take all this out without loosening it apparently.

In the process of doing this I came up with a genius life hack! ...didn't have a 14mm hex drive or allen wrench to spin that out, so I used two wrenches (6 and 8 mm) nested together. Worked like a charm!

I do have it, but I generally can figure out simple stuff like how to take things apart pretty easily without reading the manual. It was just on this step that I got stuck, because like you said, I didn't get how it was actually assembled. That threaded collard is what confused me. I've never seen that on other bikes...but to be fair I've only ever taken one other swing arm off before and that was on a Ducati 1198. That was a simpler setup. Just a big ass bolt. No weird nuts or collars.

All good now. I got it off.

He was better in Firefly/Serenity.

Pvc pipe and a dremel works wonders.... the one in the pic ain't the exact one your mentioning, i made and used it for the ones for the steering head bearings- use calipers, mark with a sharpie, cut it to where it has minimal play and the pvc will make it 50ft/lbs+.... it's also cheap costing material you can find at a local home depot/Lowe's... love me yet? Lol.
