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 recently purchased an 07 Honda sportrax and when I was checking the spark plug I saw the boot was ripped nearly in half. When I removed the plug it was blackened and covered in oil. How can I thoroughly clean the plug hole and remove any debris that is in there? Is there a small tube like vacuum or something of the sort made for stuff like this? The machine my dentist has would be perfect, maybe they do rentals! 😁

      I have a 1988 300 Honda FourTrax, All wheel drive.
      My brother and I were fixing up this quad. We put a brand new battery and fuses in and it was running fine until we put the quad into reverse. As soon as it was put into reverse all of the electrical cut out and power wasn't making it to the head unit anymore and both of the brand new fuses popped. We figured there might have been a short from the starter or solenoids, but they are all working properly. At this point we don't know where to start looking for where the short could be. I'm just wondering if anybody has had the same issue or knows of similar issues that could cause these electrical shorts?

      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!
