Removing rear brake cover 1987 Suzuki LT-4WD 250

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

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?

      Anyone familiar with these models? Its a new to me quad, picked it up for basically nothing... Just time and materials now, this looks expensive.

      I have a 2000 Polaris Xplorer with the 250 two stroke motor
      It does not want to start with the electric start, the motor cranks fast, the battery is good, and there is good spark when cranking. The engine starts perfect when using the pull cord, it even starts if I pull the cord slowly and starts with one pull. The engine idles smoothly once started. My wife says she needs the electric start to work.
