SOURCE: drive box

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. ,,,

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.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty starter button/switch.
6. Faulty jiffy stand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
7. Security alarm needs a reset.
8. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
9. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

Rack


Way back in the eighties when I had a Darmah I fitted a small rack off a BMW K-series on the ducktail. It wasn't huge but it allowed me to carry stuff and tie it down and so on. Don't know if that helps but maybe a wrecker has an old K?,,
