Question about 2007 Triumph Rocket III

1 Answer

Rear wheel removal and disconnection of the shaft drive.

I need to remove the rear wheel of my rocket and as I haven't done anything like this for years am a little concerned about disconecting the shaft drive. Once the wheel has been unbolted is there enough lateral play in the shaft to allow the wheel to be removed or is it more complicated than this?

I am wanting to install a transmission in a 1998 jeep wrangler se. 4.0 cyl 2.5 liter I will need to take out the old one first. I've never done it before and any help would be great


Instructions vary depending upon if its a stick or automatic transmission. Your best bet if you haven't ever done anything like that is to get yourself a chilton or haynes manual. Both have text and pictures to help with the job. With hanynes, you may need the transmission manual instead of the regular repair one if its an automatic...check the contents before you buy it.
When doing an automatic, it's advisable to remove the crank sensor from the bellhousing as often they get damaged accidentally when working in there. If you need to remove the flywheel, make sure you mark it's position so you can put it back exactly the same way it was installed.
Make sure you have a flat solid area to work on. Transmissions need to be supported so notheing get's damaged. To do that, you need a place where you can move a jack easily. If you need to work on dirt etc, buy a sheet of 5/8" plywood to put underneath.

How to removal the shaft from the rear end to


Hello,

In order to remove the rear wheel, it is not necessary to remove the drive shaft. The first step is to get your rear wheel off the ground. The easiest way to do this is to put your bike on its center stand. However, not all bikes have center stands. If your bike does not have a center stand, you may want to buy a motorcycle lift (available from Pep-boys, or Harbor Freight). Once the rear wheel is off the ground, you can disconnect the brake linkage, and then remove the rear axle.

At this point there is nothing holding your rear wheel to the bike except for some meshing gears. Now you must lift and maneuver the rear wheel back and forth a little and eventually the final drive will work free. You will be able to slide the wheel toward the right side of the bike and then lower it to the ground.

In theory removing the rear wheel is that simple. In practice, the gears in the final drive can sometimes hold on quite tightly. This is particularly true if the rear wheel has not been removed for a long time or if your final drive is very worn. Usually being patient and persistent will pay off and you will be able to remove the rear wheel.

Sometimes it may prove easier to remove the entire wheel / final drive / drive shaft assembly first, and then separate them. In this case, the order of operations is different. Once you have the rear wheel off the ground, you can disconnect the rear brake linkage just as before. Next you can remove the four bolts that hold the drive shaft housing to the back of your crank case. Finally you can remove the rear axle and slide the wheel backwards the unmesh the drive shaft.

Regardless of which way you remove the rear wheel, it will be easier to put it back together by first attaching the drive shaft and final drive to the crank case, and then reinstall the wheel as described in the first method above.

Good Luck,
-Josh

I have a 2000 all-wheel-drive, the rear drive shaft is broken. I can't find the manual that covers Chrysler all-wheel-drive, it looks like the ABS monitor in it, and something from the transmission...


place a jack under the transmission and raise it a bit unbolt (the transmission mount) "i think thats what u mean its all i know that above the transmission holding it in place. You'll need a rachet wrench for this and a long onbe at that,, if not you can use a piece of pipe,, you'll want the extra power.. Unbolt it and lift it off,, if its still too tight jack the transmission up a bit.That providing your refering to the transmissing mounting rubber Which is all i can think you man its the only thing above the transmission. The ABS is 2 parts ,, its a mastercylinder and a booster. Its mounted on the firewall (its the thing you pour brake fluid in.) Unjack any wire or hoses by unscrewiung them and pluging them with something.. DUCT TAAPE or rescue tape works.. Unbloth both the mastercylinder and booster from the firewall... unmounting the drive shat.. well you'll see where it bolts ,, front and back.. Thats the easir part.. you will heed o happer, pull and tug the shaft until it pops out.. Hope I was helpful.. if you need more help please feel free to ask.
