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?

      Hi all, bike does start with the electric start mostly, but the battery was weak and wouldnt start it the other day so went to use the pull start, to say its hard is an understatement first of all you gotta do a little jiggling about til it catches then pulling it takes some effort now i know im not the strongest fella in the world but this is so much harder than it should be. 
      It does start of the pull just to get the engine to initailly turn is so hard any ideas why its happening or how to fix this,
      Thanks

      I have an older (1987) Yamaha Big Bear 350.  I have arthritis in my thumbs.  Is it possible to replace the accelerator with a motorcycle accelerator (ie. twisting the handgrip)?  This would be more comfortable for me due to the arthritis.

      Hello I am new to this site and I havea problem. I have a 1987 big bear 4x4 that will not spark. I tested pick up coil per repair manual and I tested my new coil both ok. It puts out 9 volts at the coil but It is reversed polarity. So when I hook my meter up to it she shows -9 volts while cranking. When I put a test light  on it it flashes. Being an electric system this should tell me something but I don't know what its telling me. I have yet to meet one i could not fix but this old girl has me stumped. Any help would be awesome. Thanks to all.
