New shoes and a name
« on: May 10, 2018, 12:33:13 am »
As you can see I had a lot of fun tonight. Tires should be back on by Friday. Had to remove final drive and left exhaust. While she's in the current condition it'll get new oil and filter, greased splines, rear brakes, and a good cleaning.

PS. Bike needs a name any thoughts?

Why final drive? They usually don't need to be touched for life.

I needed to take it off to roll the rear wheel out and the gear housing had a tiny seepage of oil so figured I'd replace the gasket and clean everything up to be safe since it was off anyway

Seriously?
Gears in mesh...not needing the lube changed?

 :-\

Come on, I do mine every 20k, and I think that's stretching it...

As to o/p.... don't overfill it... do it on the bike, with bike sitting on tires, on the ground, and on sidestand... and add the gear lube slowly DO NOT ROTATE WHEEL during, and fill till it reaches bottom inside lip of fill opening... then seal it up.
Over filling by rotating the wheel on center stand will result in a blown out drive seal, and a leaker ....$$$$

I think he removed the final drive to facilitate the removal of the rear wheel.  JMHO  :beerchug:

Removal of the final drive MOB. Not changing the gear oil.

You don't need to do that to remove the rear wheel.

Correct lol. Couldn't raise the bike up anymore and didn't want to remove the entire rear plastic, so figured 4 bolts were easy as anything. Funny about the gear case oil though, I put it on he bench and it leaked a little from the shaft opening naturally. So I will probably just drain it and put some gear oil in the gear case anyway for safe measure.

In hindsight, I should have done the front wheel first, then rear. I had to have somebody put weight on the rear end to lift the bike enough for the front wheel to clear the fender. Because the rear end and gear case was off, I probably robbed them of about 100 pounds of help lol

I looked on here today to see any tips on this as i needed to pull the rear wheel on my bike and get a new tire put on.   the simplest way was to pull the bottom shock bolt out, (which i think i saw mentioned just once),the brake stay bolt on the caliper, hang out of way with a bungee. move caliper out of way as well laying basically on the RH muffler.  then the axle out completely, and the wheel slid right out the RH side of the bike. I jogged the wheel back, slipped the rotor around the RH back of the swing arm, and it came right out. dead stock 99, no mods. took literally 10 minutes. clears the fender, axle cleared muffler, no weird boards under the centerstand. i did however strap the centerstand to the wheel (good tip there).
New am26 will be on tomorrow.
