Struck out at finding a 12mm 1/2" drive hex bit, or an inexpensive heat gun, locally. Ordered 'em online at MSC. Pausing this thread for a few days until they arrive.

Gotta order a slide hammer too, for that right side pivot pin....

Bob's has a pretty decent online system for ordering by part number. Unless I find a better one, that's what I'll use.
Paul Passed away in june 2013 , i liked riding with Paul. wee still miss him in the bmwst group.

really you dont need a slide hammer they come out easily
you can use a cut 12mm L wrench as a stub for a 12 mm socket.
use a impact socket and gun if you have one or at least a 1/2 breaker and a pipe.
inspect and clean the bearings the front ones dont typically fail
the rear pivoits usually need to be redone.

Not to be contrary but I've found them easy to get out(including almost fall out) and some just won't budge until I put the makeshift slidehammer on it. Most will come out as proposed above.

yeah some are tighter, I just use a large socket and a correct size bolt and carefully pull them out.
but usually they just come out. I am sure a slide hammer would work but the socket is a
less traumatic way of going about it.

I think I misunderstood what you were talking about here. I was referring to the swingarm pivots in the subframe but it sounds like you were really referring to the the pivots for the final drive. I, like you, use a combination of all thread, sockets and washers to get these in and out. My bad on what you were talking about.

actually works for the subframe static one as well. just thread the all thread in the
center pulling hole after you have removed the bolt from it
you just need a big socket and some threaded things.
I do the rear ones the way you do as well, I have a press but it is easier to get a sense of
the force with the screws.

Fools Rush In, Cont.

Final drive is off:





Chris Harris' video here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0_j8SuiFQI

was useful in figuring out where to point the heat gun. Once I'd stopped spraying the swingarm with heat, and focused on the pivot pins, they came loose.








And...




Nothing wrong there. That looks fine.




Good there too.

OK, on to the next step....

Moving right along.

The left side swingarm pivot wanted some heat gun time.



Then came loose. The right side pivot, amazingly, pulled out with a mere finger pull.



And with a little tug, off came the swingarm.

And there's nothing wrong with the front u-joint or the trans output shaft splines.






So, as was no surprise to anyone here -- it's definitely gonna be the clutch splines/transmission input shaft area.

Next up: pivoting the frame and subframe up and outta the way.

Seemed like a few more things wanted to be disconnected for a pinch free hoist up:

Intake pipes:






The clamp holding the fuel lines.



They also wanted to be let loose from the front of the airbox.

Also, my exhaust headers looked pinchy, so I pulled 'em.



Then, very carefully, up went the tail:









Pardon all the images. I think if I document this well, it might be a useful thread for another novice at some time.

Looks like the next step is to pull the starter motor and that thingamajobby on top of it (starter relay?). Then I'll be at the transmission.

Might get to that today....

When I removed the clutch slave cylinder, there was a little bit of gear oil in there. I could tell by the smell.



Suggests there's a bad seal somewhere. You guys agree?

And finally, with a little help from Diane, the trans comes off:





It's a ZWN unit. Take a look at these trans input splines, guys. Waddaya think?

And the clutch splines: toast. Smooth as a baby's bottom.
