Removing rear brake cover 1987 Suzuki LT-4WD 250

Recommended Posts

Trying to put new shoes on the rear brake of a 1987 LT-4WD. 

Can anyone tell me if I need to remove the big nut in the center of the hub to do so? (The yellow line in attached photo)

Or should that brake cover just pull off, like in this video https://youtu.be/UD18QGnFeCs?t=70

If it just pulls off... how much effort should it require? Because it seems stuck on there pretty darn good.

That nut (castle nut)should remain and the drum should come off.  Its very common for the drums to get seized on like that.  Yiu can tap it with a rubber mallet all around. It will loosen up.

Drum came off easily... after I took the parking brake off 😂 pretty embarrassing 

With the cover off - seems like it would be easier to change the shoes if I took the castle nut and the lug bolt X assembly off?

Hahaha that’s great. It happens, I’ve done stupider shit. I 

You certainly can. Just have extra cotter pins handy.  And might as well put some fresh grease on the splines while your there.

👍 good advice, thanks. Any tips on how to loosen that castle nut, or how to lock the axle while I try and turn it? Having a hard time getting leverage - it isn't counter-threaded is it?

      I have a Yamaha Timberwolf 250 2x4 that I purchased a while ago as a project. I fixed it up to where everything was working great in my opinion, however when I showed it to a potential buyer he complained about a vibration from the rear drive shaft. (Which I ridiculous seeing as he tried to wheelie it before that) Anyways I took the rear diff apart and found most of the seals and bearings where bad. So I bought a kit off of amazon only to find that it doesn’t have all of the bearings and seals. After finding that I decided to try to find a used good condition replacement but they’re all to expensive for me so is there a better alternative for me, or can someone point me in the right direction to get the rest of the parts?

It’s getting fuel, the battery is brand new and charged I’m lost here!( purchased a new carb on its way) anyone have any ideas

      I think my rear brakes are stuck.  Is these parts in the right position?  Any idea how I repair?  I have to give it more gas to go and I can't push it when it's in neutral.

      Friend of mine picked up an LT80 that needs some work. The manufacture date is 11/1986
      The fuel and vacuum lines for the carb were all disconnected. I picked up a new card and was hoping someone on here has a photo or knows how the lines are hooked up
      Thanks in advance
