Any tips on getting that whole thing to slide in there? I don't seem to have the motor skills to put all that stuff in there. I've tried holding it in place with a screw driver while I put everything else up there.
I'd have to say that alighnment is the key. When I was removing my axle a couple weeks ago...I was pulling with all my might, and couldn't get the last few inches out...But when I positioned the wheel just right, it came out slicker than shit. When reassembling..I found it easier to have the chain tensioner push block (square aluminum piece which the axle goes through, which slides into swingarm) already in place, rather than sliding the axle through, and then trying to slide that block over the axle and into the swingarm. Hope that's clear, and mine's a '01, so not sure if it's the same?
You never know how fast you can go, until you crash.
My problem is the whole thing is too wide to get into there. The Kush drive and everything is in there right so that can't be the problem. I'm pretty sure everything else is in there right. I now know that 92143A is in the right place and facing the right direction. But I can't get it to fit.
Iowa, I have a 96 and just had the rear wheel off this weekend to change the tire and sprockets. 92143A should be placed into the wheel bearing in the orientation shown in the diagram, between the wheel and swingarm. 92143B should also be placed between the swingarm and wheel on the opposite side in the orientation shown.
I managed to keep everything together with just myself to do the work. First, make sure you rear caliper is lined up in the stays. Sit on the ground and use your feet to push the tire into alingment with the axle holes. It helps to have the two spacers (92143A & B) pushed into place as you're lifting the wheel. It's really just a matter of finessing everything into place...and not losing your patience. It took me several tries but it should not be that challenging. Consider enlisting an extra set of hands, which would make the job much easier. Good luck.
Does 92143A actually fit into the bearing? There's that groove in there, but mine doesn't slide into that groove. I think if it did everything would fit. 92143B is matching up fine though.
Nice to see I have everything in the right place. The height my bike is at now putting a roll of duck tape under the wheel holds at the perfect height (a miracle) and since it's a donut it holds in the wheel in place and keeps it from moving.
Apparently when we took the wheel off and everything fell to the ground either I or my roommate (now former roommate) put 42036 onto the outside of that bearing. Which would explain why 92143A wouldn't fit into the bearing.
Now I need to go get new header gaskets and I might be able to ride tomorrow night!
