Re: final drive, ad nauseum
Wes is on his way to the BRP enroute to home. My hat is off to the great people at Steel Riders Cycle in Lebanon, TN. Although all of the other bikes in the shop were of american heritage they graciously allowed Wes to store his bike there for a several days AND offered up the use of a lift to swap out the rear drives. I was ready to wallow in the drive way but it was sure nice to have a lift.
His failure was a classic, big crown wheel bearing. The cage had just shreaded the seal but no wobble on the wheel before removal. Yes there was a thick and a thin shim. Guess I need to start stocking bearings and seals.
Jean even rode up with me and we brought her colapsable rocking chair in the Bushtec. She was happy to sit and read while Wes and I wrenched. Should have brought a bottle of wine and a block of cheese, could have had a picinick. Weather was a balmy 63 degrees so nice after a summer in the high 90's.
