2002 Honda 300ex - A Arm Bearing Replacement ~ HELP!!

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to replace the a arm bearings on my son's 02 300ex and I can't seem to get the clip ring (or stopper ring as Honda calls it) out... I tried retaining clip removers, mini needle nose pliers a set of picks and I even tried banging them out and nothing... The ring has no room for expansion or anything... Anyone have any ideas?? All help is appreciated, I'd rathe not have to pay to bring it to a shop. This is driving me crazy... Please help he's bugging to go riding.

Thanks in advance,

Carl

Okay I got them out, now I can't get them back in... I tried clamps, and I got one in and then the clamp broke... Any other suggestions?!

a good pair of c-clip pliers will do it. i wrestled with those clips alot too. i stormed off one day and i paid 60+$ and got a good pair with different "pins" you can change up via allen/hex key lockers.

Mine had the "pins" or teeth to remove, not the whole plier end.

Yeah I finally got the one out so I figured why take the other clip on the other side out. I got the bearing out and now the new ones won't go in. I got one bearing in and now the others won't go. I broke a c clamp trying to get the others in. I can't find a c clamp that I can use an impact wrench on instead of the twist kind... Any ideas?? I can't find a bearing press small enough and cheap enough even at harbor freight... Thanks in advance for the help

A peice of threaded rod,nuts, and some different sized washers will do the trick.....that is if I'm understanding it correctly. There is a thru hole, right?

I got one on with a c clamp after cranking the hell out of it with a vise grip, but then ruined the clamp and about 6 others on the second one and it's still not going in. I even tried a pulley puller and an impact gun and wrench and it snapped the puller in half... Yes it has a through hole, but the ball joint won't come off the a arm so I can't set it on the ground and bang away on it... Here's a picture of the bearing

      I own a 2002 Can-Am Quest 650.
      It will start if you massage the throttle a bit and it will continue to run. BUT if you let go of the throttle and try to let it idle it will always die warm or cold.
      It has Non-Oxy premium gas, a new gapped NGK plug, a new carb (as of today) and fresh fluids. After installing the new carb it runs exactly the same.
       
      I only have a few things that I have observed since the new carb:
      The choke still doesn't do anything. It has a good cable and it is hooked up. It on fully off. There is a cable in the top, front of the engine that splits into two connectors. The connected side is in the photo. The other side has the yellow banded section and is not connected. I do not see anything in range of this connector so I don't know if this is normal or not??? The original carb wasn't really dirty or clogged. I'll use it as a spare. I don't see this cable and connectors listed in the Can-Am shop manual. Looking for some help. I want to ride!

      My quad runs,  it starts up runs for about 10 minutes and then it dies if you let it sit for 10 minutes it’ll start back up ride for another 10 minutes and then die again, trying to figure out why it keeps stalling

      Hi Ladies,
      I am new to the forum and to riding. I just bought a 2002 Honda 400ex and I love it. I went out riding for the first time last Sunday and I can't wait to get back out there on Saturday. My question is do you wear your wedding/engagement rings while riding? I just recently got engaged and I never take my ring off. It fits fine under my glove and I am wondering if anyone else has lost theirs or had a bad experience wearing it while riding.

      So this’ll be long I’ll give all the background first to see my issue skip to the ***
      Hey I picked up a pit bike and a foreman for 800 the pit bike was running but the foreman was locked up.  Sold the pit bike but when I took the top end off the piston I only found half a piston left.  So knowing the rest of the piston was down in the crankcase I knew it had to be pulled and gone thru completely.
      to pull the motor I went ahead and pulled the rear end off and unbolted the front diff to pull the drive shafts and pull the motor.  Now I have the motor torn down completely and have all the parts of the piston removed.  I know the rod and crankshaft is shot (heat discoloration and too much up and down play rod to crankshaft).  
       
      ***so I’m wondering while I have the motor apart what should I check for?  I know this motor died from heat as the oil in the head smelled like popcorn.  So what should I check to make sure I fix the issue (overheating I assume) and not just the symptoms (blown up motor lol).
      so put simply I don’t want to just rebuild the motor to have it overheat and repeat the process after 5mins of running
      Here’s some pics

      Hey guys, Im new here but I recently Picked up a '99 Foreman 400 that apparently just had a top end rebuild. It blows white smoke like crazy and ticks/knocks and seems to follow the rpm's. I haven't done to much trouble shooting yet, It starts and runs like a champ and has good compression. I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to where to go.
      Oh ya the top end rebuild the guy did was according to him he honed the cylinder and replaced the piston and rings, my fear is an ovaled cylinder?
