swingarm doesn't want to come out ugh

Post by flying eyeball » Mon May 19, 2014 5:12 pm

the inboard (tub) side seems like it will come out but the other side won't. It will wiggle but thats it.

Ay ideas?

Have you try moving the kick start lever off the bike or just holding it down? Along with taking off the air filter unit so you can get your hand in there?

Did you unbolt the lower shock mounts from the swing arm?

Josh, I just did this about a month ago but can't remember anything about it. :lol: Is it possible there is a bushing inside the rubber that could have moved a bit thus not allowing you to pull the arm?????

Like this? # 32 6309763 Distance bushing, silent block in the Frame R fender section of the 2007 parts breakdown. Looks like there is the same part in the 650-750 parts breakdown.

Yep...Ural calls it "distance (metal sleeve) bushing" inside the rubber bushing. Run a feeler gauge between the frame & the swingarm & feel for a snag. Shoot some silicone lube spray & push the dist bushing in w/a punch till it clears, check the front & rear sides. Spraying silicone lube along the rubber/metal contact areas, will facilitate swingarm removal. I've done it several times this way, YMMV. Good luck!

Why are you taking the swing arm off? Not necessary.

Huh?

That is the way my 07 Patrol came wth the swing arm unbolted but hanging there and final drive/driveshaft removed. Others have told me that to put in a new clutch the trans had to come out along with swing arm unbolted so you could remove the donut, drive shaft and final drive.

Is there another sequence one could do clutch job or pull the transmission on a 07?

That is only true (and partially true) for 07 models and later. On 06 and earlier, the driveshaft was made differently and you could remove the driveshaft without having to remove the swingarm.

Josh,

For the time and money and effort.....it would probably be best to buy all new clutch parts.

Josh,

Those bolts don't have NEAR enough rust on them. I would make sure you correct that before putting it back together. :lol:
