I don't know ... I have not done it ... call the dealer and see what the cost is ... my guess is it is not a average joe job ... probably requiring tools and skills beyond the typical shed inventory. getting it out will probably require major engine disassembly ... a clean place to store the parts. getting it back together will be very challenging ... i think. im a average joe ... and I wouldn't even consider it. i would trade the motorcycle. I would end up with a box of parts.

Can you replace main bearings without removing engine citroen c4 grand picasso 1.6 diesel 2007


You cannot replace the main bearings without removing the engine. only the rod bearings are replaceable if the oil pan will clear chassis for access to crank shaft. Why do you need main bearings on a 2007, these bearings should be good for 500,000 miles. what happened? (run without oil?)

Cant shift into gears


Is it an Automatic or Standard transmission? Your description of the problem is very confusing. An automatic does not have a throwout bearing. The clutches or disks on an automatic are not for the average Joe to mess with. Please let us know what you're working with.

How to replace 2007 streetglide transmission output shaft bearing. Can it be done from thr left side?


Never had a transmission output shaft (the bearing that supports the belt pulley shaft) fail. Are you sure this bearing is gone? The bearing that usually fails is the clutch mainshaft bearing that is mounted on the inner primary casing and causes a noise that can be stopped by pulling in the clutch and putting it in gear. If this is the case, then the bearing is gone. It is replaced by removing all component from left side engine. No need to go near the transmission.

I have a 1992 toyota pickup truck. It is 4x4, 3.0 v6, automatic trans. I recently threw my carrier bearing for the drive shaft. Replaced the bearing. Before incident, there was a very light grinding noise...


A noise is pretty tough to diagnose via e-mail. It could be any of the u-joints, differential, output shaft bearIng/bushing(transmission). I like put the rear axle on jackstands and run the truck in drive at idle and then I use a piece of 1 inch heater hose about 3 feet long as a stethoscope. Put one end against your ear and the other in the area of the noise to pin point the offending part.

Hi my gs1150 2002 got a light vibration it feels like a bearing in the geargox that grinds -gon-grinds again


Had the same problem with my R80RT 1986 model .Suggest to drain the gearbox oil ,if it looks like metal flake paint then definitely bearings . In my case it was the output shaft rear bearing , I replaced all the bearings (except the main bearing on the input shaft because to replace this one requires replacing the shaft as well many dollars) my bike had done 275k K/m (170k miles)

Looking for diagram and instructions on replaceing rear main shaft bearing on 1988 700r4 iremoved tail shaft cover can shaft bearing be removed from back of tanny or do ihave to pull whole assembly out...


If you have a failure of the rear main bearing, replacing it will not resolve the issue. Something went wrong, and you need to find and repair that. Perhaps oiling based issues....

If the bearing failed, there is usually cap damage. This is the block and cap that hold the bearing.

Really, you cannot correctly fix these issues without the engine out and disassembled. There are machining processes that need to happen, like align boring, and clearance measurements.

How do I do a front drive shaft on a 99 silverado? My ujoint is out towards the back. I can see the front just has the 4 bolts to take that apart. what I am wondering is if the back slides out of the deal...


I see that the solution given is for an axle shaft and not the drive shaft that was asked about. I am 99% sure that if you take out the bolts the other end will slide out of the t-case. Then the u-joint can be replaced as normally done.

Find a manual by Googling " Motorcycle service manuals "
or go to www.repairmanuals.com

Installing new crank bearings is not a simple task. you will need a 3/8" impact driver, flywheel puller, case splitter and torque wrench. The top end comes off then the side cases, flywheel, flywheel electrics, clutch, shifter shaft, Crank drive gear and output shaft sprocket.

Split the case leaving the gears on the shafts and the shift drum and forks in place but out of the gearbox. Remove the crank and then remove the bearings from the crank or from the center casings depending on where they decide to stay when the case splits. Remove the crank seals from each center case half. Install new seals then install new bearings into the center casings.

Now just put everything back together.
By the way, now would be a good time to stick in a new output shaft (sprocket) bearing and seal. Be sure the OHC is timed correctly when installing the cam chain. Bad timing = bent valves.
