    Problem with Swingarm Skid Plate

    Bought an aluminum swing arm skid plate and I'm having trouble lining it up with the holes on the swingarm. Two holes are off just a hair. Should I just carefully drill out the skid plate?

    Also, when I removed the stock skid plate, a very small amount. (hardly any) of aluminum threads from the swingarm came off with one mounting bolts. Is this something to worry about?
