EHCS Actuator Gear

Has anyone found a source for the gear in the EHCS actuator?

When replacing the motor, dummy here not once, but twice put the long screw through the gear.

I don't think it's repairable at least by me.

Went to my dealer and one of the mechanics sold me a complete actuator including motor for $100. Couldn't pass that up. I was hoping to fix this one as a spare.

Wow, I just bought one to try and retrofit my 01 and have started ordering the o-rings and seals to do a rebuild before it goes on.

Maybe I will just box it up and send it off to jzeller after seeing this. If you did it twice, it must be easy to do. Good luck.

Re: EHCS Actuator Gear

Now I know how that gear got damaged - the wrong screw in the wrong hole. I had one come in that had one hole like that in the gear. I was able to repair that one with some J B Weld and it appears to be holding up. Good that you got a used one for a replacement. I still have two bench stock units that have damaged end caps and I have not gotten any replacements made yet. If your dealer has any more dead ones I would be interested in them for critical parts.

Re: EHCS Actuator Gear

Hi Dbull. My name is Ron. I have a customer with a 2006 that I have the actuator off on my bench to repair for a while now. I have new electric motor and complete seal kit already but I need a hydraulic motor asy. its only held on by 2 8mm nuts. They don't usually go bad but his got damaged. Let me know if you have one for sale?

I have a complete EHCS left over from triking my 2009 K1200LT. I'll send it to you for $200.00 plus shipping. Cecil (318) 541-3257.

John, if my actuator is having an issue getting to the very top, is it low on oil? Don't want to add and blow the cap I don't see any signs of oil under the bike at any time. I think in another thread you gave an amount you could add reasonably safely.

Re: EHCS Actuator Gear

A loss of just 10-15 ml will keep it from reaching the top. You would be safe to a 10 ml and try again.
