my rear tire keeps rubbing my exhaust when i do small jumps or even whoops i know this is not supposed to happen, is there a way to move the swing arm a little bit to the left. If anyone has any ideas how to fix the problem please let me know.

There's no way to move the swingarm.

Your problem is most likely a bent subframe.

Try putting a couple of washers against your subframe to move the exhaust out a bit. . .

There is suppost to be a quarter inch spacer that sits on the inside of the harness that holds the pipe. make sure that is there, i know if you go down you will also have that harness smash in a bit, if you undo the rear harness what ever you want to call it that pipe should be able to move right or left a couple inches, if it will not move right you might have a bent pipe forcing it to far to the left... anyway been there done that I went down and had the bending to do to get it to clear the tire... Unless you are running an unreal wide tire... stock is 90/110 anything bigger thatn 90/120 might rub ya ... not in a good way... :thumbsup:
