Honda vt1100 drive shaft problem

I have a problem identifying the components of the drive shaft on a vt100 trike conversion. it would appear that there should be a bearing supporting the drive shaft at the opposite end to the universal joint(wheel end). the shaft has a machined surface next to the large splined end at the wheel end but there is only a large brass bush for the female spline to run in. this brass bush sits in the swing arm outer end and is held in place with grub screws. can anybody tell me if i am correct in thinking that there suould be a bearing to ssupport the shaft in the swing armat this point, what size and type, or how the components were originally fitted. thanks.

SOURCE: Vt250F Swing arm bearings need replacing

You need to tap the old races out with a large hammer and a drift. A steel chisel works, a punch with a flat end works better. Position the punch or chisel on the visible edge from the opposite side and hit it firmly. Move your device to the opposite edge and hit it again. You don't want to drive only one side out, twisting the race. It needs to be driven fairly evenly, close to straight out. Rarely, you have to cut the race out, if you must do that I would use a rotary tool with a cutting disc.

SOURCE: Honda 1988 sa50 scooter needs a new spline on the Crankshaft

The crank needs to be pressed apart by a machine shop to separate the two halves, and needs balancing after reassembly.
You may not be able to buy just one half.
But I would suggest replace the entire crank

SOURCE: I cant get the rear tire off my 2004 honda vt 1100

Often to remove the rear wheel on a Honda , you have to let the air out of the tire and squeeze it out past the shaft drive spline. Some times the problem is made worse by previous owners that put on a tire bigger than the recommended size. With no air in the tire it should come out easily enough.

SOURCE: Cannot remove the swing arm from my Honda VT500 Ascot

I know this is an old post, but figured it might help someone else out. I recently had to remove the swing arm on my Shadow 1100 and had the same clearance issue. The solution was simple; I had to remove the final drive, releasing the drive shaft from the universal joint. The final drive was held on by four bolts. May vary on different models. Once removed, the swing arm slipped right out. Just be sure to grease the gears and parts during re-assembly. Best!

MY 1500 HAS BEEN TRIKED AND WON'T START WITH CLUTCH LEVER IN SWITCH ON LEVER WORKS. WILL ONLY START IN NEUTRAL


It is possible that whoever did the trike conversion did not figure out the sub harness they added correctly, or left something unplugged. Could also be a broken wire inside the insulation. As complicated as a Goldwing electrical system is, you may have to go back to the person/company that converted the bike (if done by a company specializing in conversions) or find a crack Goldwing mechanic that specializes in electric issues.
