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

      My Honda Fourtrax won't start. The starter is kicking the engine over, but it won't start. It sat for about a year while I was living away, so I thought it might have been bad gas. I completely drained the fuel, flushed the fuel lines and filled it with fresh gas. However, still nothing. It started and ran fine the last time I used it. Any suggestions on how to diagnose this? It could be fuel or electrical at this point. Is there an easy way to rule one or the other out? Thanks

      Figured I'd share the wealth with my over 35GB library of shop manuals. Enjoy, and everyone have a very Merry Christmas!

      Hey just after some advice. I purchased the above mention bike back in mid May.
      I had the Occasional issue with starting the bike. When trying to start the bike It would make  a Clicking noise when the start button was pushed. 
      So I used the pull start all ok.
      I checked the battery and the starter solorid / relay and found the terminial had  corrosion on them.  
      I clean them up and have no issues since. 
      However last night the issue came back with clicking when pushing the start buttoned he time.
      Any ideas? Relay or starter motor?

      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!
