6th gear??


I did have a 2x4 in the swingarm, that wasn't enough. I managed to wedge a piece of metal against the edge of the basket, into one of those slots and managed to loosen the nut. NOT pretty but it seems to have worked. Thank you guys for the rapid replies.



For future reference, is a higher gear preferred for this job? I have it in first.

Yes the higher gear the less mechanical advantage you have towards spinning the rear tire. Glad to hear it came loose.

Glad you got it loose, Erik!

Next time, call on me and Mr. Impact Wrench (Craftsman 7.5-amp model).

I announced my victory too soon. These two stupid little screws that hold in the clutch diaphram spring holder dont want to budge and I'm afraid to strip them. How annoying. Looks like I need another beer

You may need an IMPACT DRIVER, or my still-offered impact wrench. An impact driver torques the fastener ONLY when the threads are unloaded by a hammer blow; thus . . . chances for boogering screw heads or stripping threads are minimized. Plus, considerable torque is available from these devices.

What kind of screw heads? Hex? JIS cross? Slot? The right bit and an impact driver or impact wrench oughta git 'er done, IMHO.

This is what it looks like:

How many inmates does it take to help Steel get his nuts off?

Does anyone around here (NoVA - the closer to Manassas/Gainesville the better) have a GS911 and want to sell me just one VIN slot on it?

Meaning, I would like to pay someone some reasonable amount to be able to come by every now and then (at a time convenient for them) and use their GS911 to reset the service indicator on my GS. And, possibly, if I ever have a fault code that needs reading, I could come by for that purpose, too.

I figure they cost $350 and allow 10 VINs, which is $35 per VIN. But, I'd even pay a bit more than that, just to cover the hassle factor.

My service indicator is on. I've done the service myself, and I just can't see paying Morton's $45 to turn it off for me every time it comes on.
