  1. Thanks mate for clearing that up. I made a tool like you described to remove it in the first place but I don't think it will hold up on tightening.
  2. Hey guys, Couple of questions... When tightening the swingarm pivot lock nut, is there an alternative to purchasing the tool (see link)? https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/262698830520?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=705-154756-20017-0&ssspo=8uuBLBV_Q4y&sssrc=2047675&ssuid=TdxnQh9FQ26&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY You need to hold the pivot bolt while the lock nut is tightened and I can't think of any other method.... Also, does anyone recognise these bits? Thanks in advance!
  3. Hey guys, Just need a bit of advice on this.. installing the front lower arm and torquing the bolts to the specified 44 Nm, there is no free-play on the pivot point. It does however have a bit of a spring action (returning to where it starts). Does this sound right or should it be free swinging? Also, it doesn't specify grease on the pivot bolt.. though this would be required due to friction?
  4. Yeah perfect - just ordered it. Here we go, momentum! 😄
  5. https://quadbitz.co.nz/products/honda-trx300-shift-drum-forks Just found this - not far from me (only 5000km across the ditch!)... doesn't have the year but looks pretty close. What do you think?
  6. Yeah from the way I interpret the user manual, shifting with the manual over-ride will disable the ES system which can be reset by powering off and then on again. I'm just wondering what caused the shift drum shaft to snap off in the first place. They seem to have very little resistance against the shift sensor.
  7. Does shifting manually risk damaging the ES system?
  8. Hey guys, I need a new manual shift shaft - can someone please confirm the part required? I think it might be 24611-HN5-A10 but not 100% sure... To be clear it's the shaft used to shift the box when the ES is not working/flat battery, etc.. You use the tool provided. The previous owner welded a peg to it so it could be used to shift manually by foot. Seriously.
  9. It was great fun when it was running. Loads of power! Great for the beaches down here.
  10. Thanks for the tips! I'm in Bremer Bay on the south coast of Western Australia. Probably about as far away from anywhere else in the world!
  11. Sorry, where do I find the link mate?
  12. 100% I really don't want to have to split the case again after this!
  13. I had sources for the shift drum about a year ago (Partzilla and a couple other online suppliers) however I didn't have the funds at the time and they sold out. I was close to buying a used one from a 2000 model from a wrecker (salvage) but reeeeeeaaaallly didn't want to put a used one in not knowing the history, etc.. I found a Japanese OEM supplier (yumbo) and ordered one through them. Hopefully I don't get ripped off and they send the part. It set me back about $150AU so if it comes it's definitely good value. Parts in Australia are difficult to come buy for these bikes. They have all dried up in the used market.
  14. Thanks mate - good to be here!
  15. Thanks mate - yep starting to cool down a bit - especially where I am!
