Swingarm black rubber bolt cap

FYI this chrome cap fits the black swingarm cap on the SH.



Also the OEM cap fits the SH as well, I was going through a box of OEM Chrome I pulled off the VTX and I noticed both caps looked the same size so


I popped off the black plastic SH swingarm cap, eyeballed both caps and they are an exact match and the chrome caps fit perfectly!


Honda does this a lot to save on production costs and over the years I have learned to look at other OEM Honda parts to see if they are a match and you would be surprised at the items they use on multiple bikes...


I will post a pic this weekend.

The set I purchased was polished aluminum.


Polished aluminum and chrome plated parts are generally hand finished to a higher quality by removing the casting marks and smoothing the rough finished OEM surfaces which can produce drag that can affect performance.


By polishing the aluminum and chroming the steel parts on motorcycles helps to reduce drag which improves MPG and general over all performance...
