My cush drive on my 1996 gpz1100 has a bit of play in it. Struggling to find a new one.Is there a cush drive from another bike that fits. Thanks. Jim

Cush drives get some play because the rubber bits wear, you may be able to go with after market parts for replacement. If not, check around you may be able to find it from a dealer that is reasonable

How to change rear wheel bearings on gpz 900 r 1987

Take off wheel...remove cush drive on sprocket side...prise the oil seal out on the brake side and you'll see a circlip...remove this and drift bearings out. Drift new ones in with a socket or bit of tubing that is the same size as the bearing outer so as not to damage the circlip.

When you replace 2001 kia sportage vacuum hubs with manual, it it just the front hubs that get replaced?

If it is a rear wheel drive predominately then yes you replace the front vac hubs only as the rear is constantly driving, is it a east west motor or north south , that will tell you a lot

Seem to have a small amount of play on rear sproket,it moves before wheel does is this correct !

a small amount is ok as it has a rubber mounting between the sprocket carrier and the wheel, If it gets too much it may need new rubber cush drive.

I have a 99 cbr 600f4 and it seems that the chain makes a weird sound on takeoff.. could it be the transmission?

could be the transmission output shaft bearing.
or a dry / worn out chain
or if the rear wheel is not in alignment binding the chain
or the cush drive could be worn out esp. with your wording "takeoff" lol

Transmission noise

if the belt is too tight &/ or misaligned, it can make nasty squelching noises!?? I found that the cush-drive hub runs on only a single bearing, off-centred to the belts pull, which could not maintain radial/ alignment stiffness, this made all the square teeth on the belt wear to a taper, i eventually had a secondary 'outrigger' needle-roller bearing mounted on the far inside end of the cush-drive hub [this took a little specialised machining] and the new belt since, now wears true!
