Sorry for your loss, may he RIP. Our Prayers and condolences to his friends and family.
Sorry to hear about your friend, shit just ain't fair sometimes. You figure anything out on the tranny?
thank you. its been a surreal week.
i figured out that i need to take the primary apart.
got the garage cleared/cleaned and will get it on the bench today.
I took a nap instead.
Naps are good for the soul...as well as a tired body...
I bent the transmission shiftier rod on my 2 smoker dragging the bike on it's side across a down 3 foot diameter log years ago.
The bent shaft hung up and caused mis-shifts.
Maybe the bike took a rest on it's side and bent it's shaft before you bought it.
Doubtful, but I’ll check it for straight.
The crank nut will have red locktite, heat'll be your friend. I think one of them (trans or crank) is reverse thread too, double-check that before you "hog" on parts.
I've used the fabric from a ratchet strap bunched up and strategically jammed between the primary chain and sprocket to immobilize it for removal.
Thanks for the tips.
I’ll use a torch on the nuts, and I got a impact.
I’ll get it up there soon and start peckin away at it.
At least with a 2003, it should have a trap door. The output stays in the case. The rest of the transmission pulls out. You need a pusher/puller to extract the output. And it would be a good idea to replace the bearings in the output while you have it apart. If it comes to that.
Yeah it’s got the trap door.
I’ll figure out how deep I’m goin in when I get in there. I’m hoping I find the detent plate borked. And I’ll only pull the gear cluster to inspect.
Hoping I don’t have to pull the output or replace any gears.
My luck, they’re all fucked.
...yeah and if they are, you'll tackle that with ease as usual. Get some pics(hahahaha)us folks might find it helpful.
VI, since it looks like you've done quite a bit of research on your trans problem you may already have seen what I'm going to say... A locking bar placed between the primary sprockets works best for preventing movement when unscrewing the nuts. Baker Drivetrain makes a shifter drum with a bolt-on shift cam that eliminates that POS e-clip/belleville spring, it's rather pricey though. I had the shifter cam fall off the drum on one of my earlier Sportsters once and had to push the thing about a mile to get it home, that was a workout! I decided if it ever happened again I'd try a regular cirlip with a spacer, so far my current bike is shifting good...knock on wood.
Still ain’t touched the bike, it’s not even on the bench.
Got my wardrobe sorted yesterday for the memorial next weekend
And today I’ve been at Disneyland, Star Wars land, etc.
Bike will chill a bit longer. Meh.
It’s on the table.
Had to move a bunch of stuff in the garage to make room for other things so on the table it goes.
Maybe I’ll be able to start peckin away at it.
Joel is gunna be looking down laughing his ass off seeing you wearing that!
Should be a wonderful life celebration of Joel,
