there is no good way. lotsa heat, frame securely mounted on it's side and go at it. or fit it into a press if you can. or try a impact hammer. anyway you go at it is not pretty usually..

i have a very stubborn 94 yz250 linkage bolt that dpo ran with no nut on it or grease for apparently forever. it's really in there - gonna weld a stud to the head of it and make a puller i think..

Impact hammer crossed my mind, might rent one or an electric jack hammer (kinda the same thing). I like to take things apart, clean, and grease 'em. Might have to leave this one alone; it seems to articulate reasonably well. I pumped some grease in it so maybe I ought to button it up and ride it.

Want a TWO-STROKE

I have a Kawasaki KLX300 and a Honda XR200 that are in great shape, and they are good bikes for the desert, so I am not without wheels. But, I have been wanting a big-bore 2-smoker; I saw this one on CL so I bought it. I did mention that this is a project bike?
Sorry, out of focus, I was shaking. That huge motor scared me:

Hey Ray, There is an air box on ebay for that bike. I saw it today while searching "1976 YZ400". Seems like it was $25.

I may still mess with the stock shock on mine but for now I built this for my restore. It should work. The spring rate calculates close to what I think it will need. I have it set up for right at 8 inches of travel.

Ray, I don't think you will find the inner fender on Ebay. I have looked. I checked out the parts diagrams and came up with this for mine. Luckily mine still had the hardware to attach it, and a shread of what was left. I used innertube and looked at alot of pictures to see what they were stock.

NICE job on the inner fender!
I have a few ideas for a rear inner fender. I'll take an old front fender (or rear) and cut it to fit, or - take some flat aluminum sheet and cut/bend to fit. I can see it now... maybe next week.

Pretty cool idea for a replacement shock. I think I'll send my shock to Racetech, going to do the forks myself.

dirt work

I can't seem to make a picture, but here's the pipe. Going to clean it up:


That clutch lever is NASTY:


Would you take a bike like this home to your mama?


It's a dirty job, but somebody's gotta screw with it:


There's that big ol' hairy motor! Shifter kart? Anybody?

You can dispose of the tank for me by giving me your KLX 300 in trade. Seems like a deal to me.
