Canīt get the swingarm spool sliders to fit

I just recently bought a pair of swingarm spool sliders to my Versys 2009.

They are size 10 mm and 1.25mm thread. The problem is that they wont fit!
I can get them in like 0.5 cm and it stops...trying to force them in wont work.

What can be the problem here...I was told these are the ones for my bike?

Did you clean the threads in the swingarm fitting? Try the spools on each side? No swarf on the threads of the spools?
If both sides are the same problem then the threads are buggered or wrong size or pitch.

What make are the spools?

If they are the cheap eBay specials they might be the wrong size. It happened to me on a set that I got too.

Sounds like you have 1.5 pitch. It is more common on M10 bolts.
I had same problem - generic packet "Fits all Japanese Bike with M10 thread" label.
Turns out M10x1.5 was in the packet so I had to go to the Nut and Bolt place but I had to get longer bolts anyway as I needed to put a nut on the back to secure a bracket.

I just went to that link and ordered a set. Went thru the ordering screens and when I clicked the "Pay Now" button, I got a message that said that this item was NOT in stock and NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

Gigitt is right, there are two different threads for the Kawi. If you check your link to Biltema you'll find out that they sell two kinds of pitch, 10X1,5 and 10X1,25mm. I don't remember which one we should have to our V:s, probably not the one you have anyway (if the threads in your swing are okey).
Find this out first - don't force them on it until you know this for sure...!

Versys uses M10x1.25 pitch bolts for Spool/Bobbin Pickup.

I did the same as you and I didn't get the message? I didn't complete the order because I already have a set. Try emailing Speedy he will let you know if he has them or not.

So you ordered and received # 82550 instead of # 82549 ?

I didn't get the message until the last button - "pay now"

Up until then, everything was fine.

Update:

Found out that these are 10mm x 1.5 but the package says 10mm x 1.25!

No wonder they didnt fit...

Contacted the company today and they promised to get back tomorrow.
I hope they remove all of these from the stores asap.

The problem now is that I cant fit a 1.25 anymore since the 1,5 ****ed up the threads.

I think you need to pull the wheel & run the proper tap from the inside to clean up the threads...a bolt MAY fit from the inside

How would you know? Have you even tried an M10, 1.25 yet? Did you force it that much with the 1.50?

When I tried fitting my spools which came with M10x1.50. it was hard to hand thread them on. If you cannot start threading a bolt by hand then you STOP.

If you put a wrench on the bolt then you will have re-threaded the pitch, mushed it, or just did a bit of cross threading.

I would run a cheap sacrificial M10x1.25 bolt from the wheel side to try and push back the threads. You could also file a perpendicular cut in the bolt tip to act like a tap and clean the threads.

Good advice. I learned the hard way too. Many years back I buggered the threads on the drain bolt of a motorcycle sump. That was interesting, and a lesson well learned.
