Loosen the rear-axle nut
Rotate the chain-tensioners [on each side of the rear-axle bolt] to their minimum points.
Remove the wing-nut of the rear-brake adjuster rod.
Place the bike on a stool [under engine] or bike-jack.
Remove the chains, the nut, and washer.
Knock off the rear-axle-bolt with a rubber hammer.
[be careful the tire will drop down].
Take out the tire, and place it on a table.
Remove the brake-drum.
Reverse this procedure for installation.

I am replacing the rear brake shoes on a 97 Honda Recon, and when I took the cover off where the brake shoes are, there was gear oil in with the brake shoes. Is there supposed to be oil in with the brake...

Not sure if your car is rear wheel drive or if it has discs ir drums

Rear wheel drive or 4 wheel drive could be the axle seal is worn down and leaking into your drum/disc

If the car is front wheel drive then the caliper or the wheel brake cylinder is leaking

How do I get to the parking brake adjusting nut under the center console of a 2001 honda accord LX

If handbrake has excessive travel and the brake pedal is low then you havent set the rear brakes up properly ,if a drum then you clean the lip on the edge of the drum so it has a bevel then you manually adjust the auto adjuster till the drum just slides over then tap outer edge of drum wth a small hammer to level the shoes and then see if you can then adjust the auto adjuster up a bit more .Also when taking the drum off again make sure that the handbrake mechanism lever is right back ,Now if you adjust the brakes on the handbrake cable then it will be out of square and will not work on a brake roller tester ,and the footbrake will still feel spongey then you get a inspection failure for excessive pedal travel and low handbrake efficiency ,this model of car should be able to lock the rear brakes up at 30mph when jerking the handbrake up hard and it shouldnt have more than 3 clicks when done correctly

HONDA CIVIC 2001 rear brakes put on new brakes they dont have a short shoe for emergancy brake i have adjusted them they make a light clunking noise and brand new drums on the rear this car is driving me...

Hi, When you adjust them they should have a light drag as the wheel spins. The E brake should be the same on both sides. As for the noise I hope you bought the OE (original equipment) brake shoes. The other brands will squeal. Good Luck

2001 Honda Recon does not idle and stalls. Are

First off, check and adjust the valve tappet clearances. Under normal use, the valve tappet clearance tends to decrease. With this comes lost compression and a poor idle.

Next, check the air filter (clean as needed or replace), and drain any water or other sediment from the carburetor float bowl.
