On the very back of your swingarm there are 2 bolts. You need to loosen those. Next to the sprocket(on the inside) there should be some notches that you can put a small pry bar(I use a large allan wrench) and you physically rotate that back. I have 4 bolts but it should be similar to my 450, here are some pics.

YOU have SUPERMODS, enjoy them before they burn out like a road flare at a traffic accident.

Even the most generous person has a limit.

      I bought a Honda 250sx 1986 but the exhaust is broken. Apparently it's not possible to order a new one. I checked to order one on others compagny but there's noting.
      Do you know which exhaust it's possible to install. Is there a company who sold an exaust to fit on my 250sx.
      Sorry for my english
      Thank you

      Im working on a old 1987 honda 125 4 wheeler in the school shop. It will start by getting pulled by another 4 wheeler but wont start with the pull start or Electric Start. When you pull start it it tries to start but when you try the electric start it just turns over but doesnt even act like it wants to start. The spark plug is dry and it shoots fuel out of the back(air filter side) of the carb. Weve had the carb off twice and it is complety clean. What are some things we can try?

      Looking for anybody who can point me towards a free service manual for 1998 Big Bear 350. I found the sticky thread but all the links, from 2012, no longer work. If anybody has one please let me know. Thanks
