03 suzuki Eiger Half Shaft Replacement

2 posts in this topic

Please Please any help -- I'm replaceing my right front half shaft and I dont know how to get the axle out...

I got the axle apart and pulled the entire unit away from the Quad - I have a complete axle to replace it. When I tapped the axle, it pulled everything away from the quad.

That's not what I wanted as the 'green egg' (that my axle slides into) came away from the differential I can't dis-attach it from my axle.

I pulled the boot back and can see the bearings in the 'green egg' but cant get the axle out of the green egg-- it wants to pull the bearings out and they wont come out either. (which is good) - I dont really want to pull that out/apart and mess with those. I wanted to pull the axle out and slip mine in.

How do I get that out???

There is a large internal snap ring just inside the housing, or "green egg" as you called it. You will need to take thie ring out, they can be a pain, but you should be able to get ahold of it and get it out with a couple of flathead screwdrivers. Once the snap ring is out, you will have to pull the internal part of the joint out with the bearing balls. Just be carfull not to drop them, they will be easy enough to put back in. Once you have the shaft and bearing center out of the housing, look on the far end behind the bearing center, there should be a small external circlip holding the bearing center on the shaft, once you get that circlip off the bearing center should slide right off the shaft.

      I went out to ride my quad today. When I started it up it ran for a minute, then died. Since then it will turn over but won't start. I've check the spark plug and get great fire. I have had this quad for about 6 months, and very new to breaking it down. But need help. Thanks

      Hello
      Just signed up, as I've had a recurring problem, and need some help.
      To start the bike I have to put the choke on all the way and 4 squeezes on the gas, Then as I push the start, I slow squeeze the throttle about half way for it to catch....If I miss it, then it will take 5 mins of slowly finding the sweetspot on the choke in unison with some throttle squeezes.
      Then I have to to hold the throttle to keep the bike going, using the choke will stall it out. after about 3 mins of holding the throttle, I then can let it go, and it idles fine, and runs fine. If it sits for a few hours it's only slightly hard to start, but a few days of sitting, and it's a lot more work.
      Had the bike serviced they couldn't figure it out. They swapped peticock, plug, new gas, all new lines, new throttle, and cable. Said the carb was fine, and clean. New air filter, said fuel pump was fine, no leaks around carb boots, new battery, new rectifier.
      Ran some sea foam through it....Runs Great.....Just such a pain to start...
      Thanks
