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.

I cut the lower shock support off my swing arm on the right side while trying to remove my lowering kit from swing arm. Do I weld a lower support for my shock back on or get a whole new swing arm?


get a whole new unit

it is illegal to weld , heat or in any way modify a suspension unit

as you are in the bike category, the assumption is that it is a bike and therefore anything but new would place your life and the life of your pillion passenger in danger

1983 shadow 500vt will turn over but not crank


You ill need to take off your left engine cover, remove the flywheel, and replace the starter gear (part#5) and three rollers (part#13). This is your one-way clutch that allows your starter motor to turn the engine over. The gear mating surface has become rough or chattered and is not grabbing properly.Replace these parts and your starter motor will turn the engine over again. http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/1983-honda-vt500c-shadow/o/m9690#sch421900

Needing a manual on how to remove the rear tire On a 2004 Honda Shadow Aero VTC 750. The tire is flat and it is cheaper for me to remove it myself and take the tire in. I'd rather not haul the bike up...


Put the bike on the center stand or jack up the back end enough to get easy access. Unbolt and slide out the rear axle. If the axle hits the mufflers, take out the lower shock bolts and lower the wheel and swing arm enough to pull the axle and spacer out. Unbolt the brake panel stop arm. The wheel is now resting on a splined shaft. Grab the wheel and pull it/slide it sideways away from the final drive assembly. Now you should be able to drop it out the bottom or roll it out the back of the wheel well. If the tire is too wide to fit between the final drive spline and the swing arm, let the air out of the tire to squeeze it through the gap. Go to the local Honda dealer and purchase a tube of Moly60 Paste and coat the spline on the final drive with it before reassembly.
