Just an additional FYI - I just swapped out the Swing-arm spindle on my early (97-01) this afternoon for the later model spindle with the 17mm Hex fitting - very quick process, took less than an hour. Didn't even remove the wheel!*
For used part cost of $25 shipped!
* It's important to recognize where all the loads are however before you undertake this.
So again, just to re-assure anyone who might have been disappointed by not being able to fit this with having 97-01, not a big deal to swap it out.
