Welcome back Creep. It was lonely without you.

The PVC pipe puller did not work.

Getting that bearing out was a major bitch.

On the upside, there is less bottom end noise, but I'm still gonna line the skidplate.
PVC cracked? Heads on modified bolts bent? Filed incorrectly? How did you use the slide hammer? What attachment?

20 questions, but I finally have time and desire to do this swap. Thanks!

Line the skidplate with what? Lead?

Reticulated foam?

There is a bearing puller listed in the 2003 640 ADV parts fiche under special tools. I have not been able to determine if it is the proper puller for this bearing, but if it is, it would seem to be a great tool for this group, I would be willing to buy it, and then pass it on to the next guy for a very small fee plus shipping...... Just need to determine if it is the proper tool.


Navigation: Main Catalog 2003 640 LC4 Adventure

Yep. Switched to galvanized pipe, then...


Quote:

Yep.


Quote:

Nope. For instance, it took four shots with the slide hammer to straighten them, shots that had the bike going "skrooot" across the concrete. Or maybe that was me.

I made some more hooks (from Grade 8 1/4"-20 x 4-1/2" bolts, as used before), leaving the hook at the full thickness of the bolt head. Fitting these into the bearing required that I remove sections of the bearing cage to make more wiggle room. I then screwed 1/4"-20 threaded shackles onto the bolts, and bolted the shackles to a standard puller jaw attachment that had been welded to the end of the slide hammer I borrowed. Then, 20 minutes with a 1500W heat gun, and it still took 4 shots to get the bearing to budge. The new bearing took quite a bit of force to install, even with it being frozen and the engine case still being warm. I'll try to take some pics of the tool this evening before I return the slide hammer.

Adhesive-backed cork, prolly 3/8" thick, unless that's too thick, then I'll use 1/4" thick stuff.

Good luck with the swap. It ain't much fun.

I woke up this morning to 2 inches of snow on the ground I might have to put the LC4 away after all. I was able to put 700 miles on it since Loaded put his away though.

That's true. The snow hawks are pretty fun. I also have this for some winter fun.



The only problem is the fact that there is enough snow on the ground to not be able to ride the bike, but not enough to have fun with the snowmobile. We need 2 feet or more to cover the rocks and stumps and be able to ride off of the road, so right now, I can't have fun with either.

I put my sand paddle on the back of my EXC last year and tore around in the snow. It's amazing how well it works. Even better are the Trelleborg studded tires. My best freind has a set and we ran them last year on his 525 EXC. They were incredible and worth every penny.

That's what my wife says too. But the cheaper the date, the more cash for toys.

About 15 years ago, there was a guy back in California that made a ski adaptor he sold for about a 100 bucks. Then al you needed was a snowmobubble ski, a paddle or studded tire and you were in business. About 350 bucks to go play in the snow.
Yea, it wasn't a snowmobile but it was fun... as soon as you remembered to turn left to go left and so on. Like a Jetski, the first half hour you fell over alot.
