This is a job I have done manymany a time on all sizes of Guzzis but this one is a real pig I have stripped the back end of the bike and now the s/arm with drive box is in my workshop but will they come apart? no way! I have tried Plus Gas, and also lots of heat but so far it aint moved a inch, the drive box is now just the casing as I stripped the insides out, any ideas??,I think that the box is siezed to the swinging-arm, via the studs, so maybe it would be worth trying that freeze-and-release spray that is available from Halfords, and other Motor Shops. I suspect that electrolytic corrosion has probably occurred between the studs on the drive-box, and the holes on the swing-arm flange, that they fit into. If all else fails, heat the studs up with a powerful blow-lamp, then lob a bucket of cold water on them. Maybe that will shock them off. ,,,

I need to replace a tire on back of a 2003 yahama v star and its shaft driven so how do i go about it


This should help you a fair bit, it's not that big a job.
Instructions below found at:
http://motorcycle.justanswer.com/questions/1ayag-remove-rear-wheel
---------------------------------
In addition to the obvious of elevating the back of the motorcycle to get the weight off the rear tire, you need to unbolt the final drive from the swing arm and remove the final drive and rear wheel as an assembly. The drive shaft will come out with the final drive, not a problem.

Once you get the assembly off the bike, you can remove the axle then separate the final drive from the rear wheel and do what you needed to do.

When you go to re-install the drive shaft, you have to align the splines. Sometimes it is easier to put the bike in gear so the female splines on the intermediate shaft don't turn as you rotate the rear wheel to insert the drive shaft.
When you go to put it back together, just tighten the bolts that hold the final drive to the swing arm evenly in a crossing pattern until tight.

As an aside note, while you have it off, make sure you grease the splines on the end of the drive shaft and the splines for the rear wheel before putting it back together
---------------------------------

All the best, plainnash

Final drive oil seal replacement


The problem is that the engine, or swing arm should be removed in order to make his job easy . Make sure that the bearing behind the seal doesn't have play side to side . I don't think you could get enought room to slip the new seal over the shaft by removing the final drive unit at the rear wheel, the locking bolt under the rubber boot behind the seal,and sliding the drive shaft assembly back into the swing arm cup . If you have to pull the swing arm off, it would be a good time to re-pack the bearings with moly grease . The old seal just prys out, and the new seal must be tapped in evenly . Do not distort the seal . Try to find something round that fits the seal to tap opon . I have used plastic pipe . J
