175DT rear swing arm

Is this normal? Nothing else appears bent or damaged in any way.

Hello DCR i had taken some pictures of my parts I brought for powder coating yesterday and I cropped out the swinging arm and it has the same gradual bend on one side .... I know everything on my DT looks very straight so I reckon its not an issue
Regards
Bill

This is normal as long as there is till only enough room for the wheel components to fit slightly loose. The axle bolt will pull it in slightly when tightened up for a good secure fit. The fun part is getting all things together without forgetting things.

Thanks for your help. I suspected it was by design but wasn't 100% sure. Nothing seemed out of whack when I took the rear wheel off.

Now time for blasting and repainting - or powder coat. Not sure yet.
