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

Front bearings can I replace? what tools do I need?


The caliper has to come off first,then the rotor. Examine the outer bearing first for cracking, pits,rust,etc., it may be OK. If you want to replace them , you need new seals too. The outer bearing races can be knocked out with a hammer & punch
Pack the new bearings with grease,install the seal with a hammer & 2x4.
To set the bearings:
Tighten the nut to 12 ft/lbs while rotating the wheel
Back off the nut dead loose
Tighten it finger tight
back it off to the first pin hole
This should leave .001--.008 thou. end play
Hope that's enough info!
