Good day all! First post here!
So apparently BOTH one way bearings have bitten the pooch on my old reliable 86. I bought this old girl about 10 years ago for $600 and haven't spent a dime on it except gas and oil changes (nice synthetic stuff too 😉 ).
The starter gear on the starter itself got chewed off by the intermediate gear, because when using either it or the kickstart you could hear it kick back on the starter and crunch.
Now, with the starter disabled, the kick start doesn't catch anything MOST of the time and when it does it doesn't spin the engine enough to fire. I have been told I need to replace BOTH the one way bearings.
Should i remove the engine for this endeavour? Or just do one side at a time with the bike on its side for easy of access??
