You can't get the Male and female flange to interchange

They are spaced wrong and the bearings are not in the wheels

In the correct position the only way of doing it is to swap drive shafts

Swing arms final drives and wheels as a unit

the output shaft depends on which way you are going

if you have the output shaft with the retaining bolt and you go to the 4 bolt rear axle that is spring loaded

it will rest fine

if you go from the 4 bolt to the three bolt you need to swap output shafts to the one with the retainer bolt

the triples should be the same dimensions

I understood all what you said and mean murrayf, my respect to you.

I will not give up and (will receive) the rear wheel gl7. and I long time wanted twin shocks swingarm by cx650c (or cx400c JP) to my gl, after when I saw it here on yours bikes pictures, looking really cool.

else+ I inevitably have to open the engine for repair 2gear, and could be also replace the output shaft.

By the way, i am "Adam312" )

It was difficult but I found one radiator, it was in terrible condition, the cooling fins of the front side were wrinkled by 90% the square , I planned give it to a special workshop for repair but they all refused, and moreover they said that it was almost impossible to make the repair and advised to buy another radiator.

In short.. I took an special sharp nippers for cutting skin around the nails and cut off rib layer about 3mm of the face side radiator, after I found that a lot of fluff was stuck inside between fings everywhere . About 30 hours worked ..
