Exclamation EHCS Removal

I can't get the bike up on the centerstand. Can I remove the EHCS with the bike on the side stand?.........Thanks.........

Re: EHCS Removal

Yes you can. The nut on the end of the shaft can be a challenge as you have to drop the stand down a bit to get on it. But everything else is fairly easy to do on the side stand. You can look at CWS's video here removal

Re: EHCS Removal

Thanks. I got it off fairly easily. I took it apart and the motor spit out one of the brushes. It was full of oil so I'm gonna order the kit and overhaul the whole thing and get a new motor. That centerstand is quite handy when changing oil............

Figure out where the oil came from, as in external or internal. There is a seal on the pump drive shaft that can be the source of an internal leak. Look at the cavity where that pump gear is and see if there is a coating of grease (normal) or a pool of oil (not normal). If there is oil you need one of those shaft seals as well.

Re: EHCS Removal

I ordered a new motor. Now I need to order the seals and Orings to completely overhaul the pump and cylinder. Anyone have a parts list handy?...........Thanks.

Re: EHCS Removal

These guys have a "kit" for the LT and it has one shaft wiper, on shaft seal and the two o-rings for the cylinder body. They get $25.00 for it. Just ask for the BMW kit for the center stand.

Re: EHCS Removal

I ordered the kit today. I got it all cleaned up and ready to go back together. If this works, the total cost of the rebuild will be $90. The motor was $65 shipped and the kit was $25 plus freight. So it cold run around a hundred or slightly over. The only reservation I have is that the pump is very hard to turn when you tighten the bolts down. Not sure if that's gonna be a problem or not............

PS: The oil was very thin and black and nasty. It was nowhere near 150ml.

Rattler, see this thread for a fix using paper as a gasket to enable you to tighten the pump nuts..... Has worked for me for a few years now. In fact it was my Dad ( old school mechanic ) that first thought of it when I had same problem.
