your talking about the nuts themselves, not the threads?the nuts on the bolts are the stripped thing[/b]

you might have to pull the axle off, and pull the carrier out to get those out, unless you can loosen your chain and slide the carrier back enough to get the bolts out. (try taking the front sprocket off, loosen the chain, slide the carrier back all the way, and take the bolts out)
then just either get new nuts, or get new bolts and nuts. no biggie.[/b]
well its just a matter of sliding the carrier back far enough to get the old ones out. i think even with the locked nuts on, you should be able to loosen the 2 10mm bolts. just have to get the room in there so they arent backing into the swingarm...yea i got new nuts and bolts.........and yes to the guy who asked if the 05 and 07 were different...they are different chain adjustment systems[/b]
there are two adjuster bolts/lock nuts that push the carrier back, there is one on each side of the swingarm, they screw into the carrier and butt up against the little tabs on the swingarm, you can them out to force the carrier down, then tighten the long bolts through the carrier.The 05 swingarm has 2 bolts going from one side of the carrier to the other. It does not have the two adjusting nuts like most swingarms. The two bolts holding the carrier in are what you loosen to adjust the chain.[/b]
