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

      Hi,  I'm looking for a repair manual for a 2011 Honda Rancher 420 ES.  I've been looking on here and have only seen manuals for the 420 AT.  Does anyone have a PDF that would be willing to share?  
      Thanks in advance.

      Well im at it again, took about an hour drive Saturday and made a deal on this old honda. 
      Might be restorable. Tires pretty dry rotted, mastercylinder broken glass and probably full of water. 
      Handed me the carb he rebuilt (oh no) He said ran about 6 months ago but when we pushed out of his
      field there was a tree growning through it. See pic.  Missing some parts, also missing the intake. Motor is not
      locked up, Has piece of plastic crammed in the head since no carb there for months. Brake cables bad, etc. Thats
      part of the fun. Im sure I will be posting some questions later for you all. Stay tuned Az.

      I likely just kissed $200 goodbye buying a Honda 250 this AM from Craiglist.  We'll see.
      - VIN number is off the front frame; one VIN site calls it a 2008 Honda 250 TRX - this baby ain't a 2008; other VIN sites list the VIN as invalid; might be that the owner (a shady dude from a shadier side of my home town) put a 2008 front end on it?  No idea.  
      - a HUGE hint (hint #1) would've been that there's no key to start the machine - gotta use a screwdriver.  I'll likely be visited by police sometime in the near future.
      - owner acquired from another man - owner showed me video of him riding it this summer on a major interstate while very drunk (hint #2) - the machine sounded good in the video
      - no front headlight; owner said machine has new carb - looks Chinese - he didn't have original carb; air intake box is wide open - no long plastic connection sleeve leading into air box like on my 99 king quad; no visible oil leaks; oil is dark; air filter clean; decent plastic; no front right brake apparatus; left brake handle very loose and rear brake doesn't work
      - battery at this point is good; manipulate the ignition switch w/ screw driver and the green neutral light shines (this has since stopped working)
      - it's a kick start machine: when I kicked it down (hint #3), the compression sounded normal, almost "tight"  but at the end of the cycle, there was some awful grinding noise coming from what sounded like either inside the engine or the starter area; I let it settle, kicked it again, same noise heard at the end of cycle; owner said it likely needs a new starter - I only hope it's this simple
      pictures attached - the throttle cable / zip tie pic is my favorite - but it works!  it was CRAZY dirty prior to pressure washing - and the water in air box is likely secondary to the power wash - no water was in it when purchased
      gotta few things to complete on the king quad - will be changing motor/gear oil in honda and getting new oil filter over time - talk soon - hope y'all had a great Christmas

      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.

      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!
