Hi Dan ,what make and model is your bike and do you want the rear sprocket off or the swinging arm.

Posted on Apr 14, 2015

Testimonial: "It is a Roketa mini buggy. If you look it up it is a GK-06 250cc. The rear sprocket (the plate where the lug bolts are screwed into) has to come off to get the swing arm off. There seems not to be a keeper to hold it on but talked to two guys today that suggested that you have to use a hammer to get this sprocket off. The one guy who has carts like this says that you usually can't see the keeper until you get the sprocket off. Was hoping to hear from somebody that has done this with the same type of vehicle. Thanks!"

How do you remove swing arm on a 99 yamaha big bear 350


Easy - take off tires, then caps over axle/castle nuts if you have them.
- take cotter pins and axle nuts off both ends of axle. Right side - remove brake drum, then remove two brake shoes, simple Springs connect them, you can pull apart intact, remove any collars, washers off the axle behind brakes, then there might be 4 bolts and a plate - the other side you can see the bearing. Now - this is important - for. The side with the brakes, take a socket bigger than the threads but size of axle lip - and you place that deep socket (side with brakes!) over the threads (threads will be inside deep socket) lip of socket touches lip of axle about 2-3 inches down - hit that w a hammer and the axle will go out to the left if facing rear of four wheeler. Next - remove brake lines and breather hose for rear end.
There are bolts that attach the rear end to the swing arm (to the right) take them out and maybe the bottom guard for rear end. Then where the rear end attaches to drive shaft tube portion of swing arm there are four bolts - when all that is done you'll be able to remove rear end. Undo top bolt or you might get away w/bottom for shock - next two pivot shaft nuts - big socket like, Allen head in middle - remove nut from pivot shaft (left and right side where swing arm pivots) then takeallAllen head and unscrew two thick bolts that the pivot shaft nuts tighten to our - there's a collar and bearing in there where the bike's swing arms pivot at. I've done it a dozen times - if you have any problems or that wasn't too clear, message me, I'll dig up some tech sheets from a service manual I got on a bike that year - close to same model - same mechanics, Yamaha was pretty universal. I got a 98 & 99 Yamaha 2wd and a 96 Yamaha 3504wd. All pretty easy to work on. I have a swing arm I might get rid of from Florida and a decent rate if yours is done for and you gotta replace. I sell and buy off eBay to keep most of my toys on the trail.Good luck

Can you change final drive belt on a softail without removing primary


No, you must remove the outer primary, the clutch assembly, primary chain and adjuster, the compensator sprocket, the starter, the inner primary, the rear wheel and the swing arm to change the final drive belt. It's a major job.

Good Luck

Chain keeps getting lose so i tighten it it get lose now it make a noise what is the problem


Get your rear wheel off the ground. Spin the wheel observing if the chain rides up and down the teeth of the sprocket. When this is happening notice if the chain is getting tight than slack, then you know you have a stretched chain (maybe only a 1 foot section). Replace the chain. If the sprockets are worn you may be able to save money by purchasing a chain and sprocket kit. If it is a seventies vintage Honda, they had a fiber bushing for a swing arm bearing. They were noted for failure causing the chain to bounce off he frame and swing arm . A loud banging sound while you ride.

How to replace swing arm bearings on 1970 sportster


Get the bike up off the ground and make sure it's secure. Remove the rear wheel and the rear shocks. Look for anything else that may be attached to the swing arm such a brake rod return springs etc.

Once you have everthing off the swing arm, take the pivot bolt out and the swing arm with the bearings slides off the frame. Remvove the screw and lockwasher, bearing lockwasher, the right bearing locknut, and the bearing outer spacer. Using a punch, turn out the left bearing locknut from the fork hub and remove the spacer. From inside the fork, press or drive out the bearings and bearing spacers by applying pressure against the spacer. Press or drive out the bearing shields from fork inner side.

Hope this helps,

Good Luck

How to u put chain on r6


If the chain has a master link, then you can just loosen the rear axle and let the chain tension adjustment all the way in. Then wrap the chain around both sprockets and install the connecting link. After this retighten the chain. For a chain without a master link( endless chain) you will have to remove the swing arm to allow you to get the chain on the front sprocket. After reinstalling the swing arm, and rear wheel you can adjust the chain tension and then tighten the rear axle.

How to tighten the chain


Loosen the rear axle nut mounting the wheel to the swing arm, then loosen the lock bolt on the top of the chrome adjuster ( left and right adjusters ), then loosen the lock nut on the long adjuster screw. Run the nut about 1/2" down the length of the adjuster screw. Now turn the adjuster screws equally in a clockwise direction to remove the excess slack from the chain. There should be index lines on the swing arm that the single index line on the chrome adjuster is referenced to. Example; If the chrome index line meets up with perhaps the fourth index mark on the swing arm on the left side, the right side should be at the same position. This keeps the wheel in alignment. When the adjustment is finished tighten the axle nut then tighten the adjuster lock nuts and then tighten the lock bolt on top of the chrome adjusters.

Leave some slack in the chain. Mid-chain you should be able to move the chain up and down about one and one half inches. If the chain can be lifted at the rear sprocket it is too loose. Lubricate the chain and the control cables on the bike. What condition are the front and rear sprockets in? The teeth should be bluntly rounded at the tip. If the teeth are sharp at the tip, or getting that way, then the sprockets are way past time to be replaced. Note that a worn sprocket can quickly ruin a new chain.

Please top rate this solution. Thanks!

Front sprocket


put a 2x4 or similar through the back wheel on top of swing-arm: this will lock wheel from rotating while you crack the nut. 
NEVER put the transmission in gear. 
When re-torquing the nut after refitting, put the 2 x 4 under the swing-arm instead of on top (since wheel will want to rotate opposite direction
