Question about 2001 Yamaha V Star Custom

1 Answer

I am looking for the part called the ''worm'' and am unable to locate that part alone without having to buy the entire rear drive shaft. Any ideas where to find that one piece. I have a 2001 V Star Custom 650.

I have a pro alpha 2000 garage motor. I need to remove the worm shaft coupling to separate the motor from the worm shaft. How do I do this?

Looks to me like you would push the C clip through the shaft. Have fun replacing it without the specific tool!

Firstly! GET MORE THAN ONE QUOTE FOR A PRICE!! This could turn into a BIG job needing specialist tools so If they're all about the same price, pay the money! Sand added to bearings is like sandpaper on bare skin. Either that or buy a new car.

Is there a way to change the rubber bearing on the drive shaft without buying the entire $900 part from Porsche?

yes and its called a carrier bearing first you have to remove the drive shafts get them onto a bench so that they can be separated but remember to mark them so you install them exactly as you found them this will help keep everything perfectly might have to use a hammer and a chisel to remove the old one its always best to have the new one on hand so you can look at it and know what has to be removed not bad to do good luck.

Front drive shaft has a bad grinding noise and the rear seal has cracked and the bearings are exposed and all the grease has leaked out. do i need to replace the entire shaft and what is the diffuculty and...

If you are talking about only the drive shaft joints being bad,take it out and take it to a driveshaft repair shop. Look in the yellow pages or call a trans shop and ask who they use to check,straighten and balance drive shafts. About $150.00 and may do it while you wait. Might as well put new joints in the rear one and balance while your there.

Pride elite traveller 4 a knock when driven coming from drive


Sounds to me like the worm drive is slipping , this can happen when the worm drive small bearing is worn,

If you do take it a part , please take great care, the shaft from the motor will have a worm drive, two bearings on the worm drive,

Try to move the shaft within the bearings, I paid £10 for replacement bearings.

Please give me a update.
