CLUTCH AND TRANSMISSION (3-WHEELED MODELS)
TRANSMISSION PRELIMINARY INSPECTION
After the transmission shaft assemblies have been removed from the crankcase, clean and inspect the assemblies before disassembling them.
Place the assembled shaft into a large can or plastic bucket and thoroughly clean with a petroleum based solvent such as kerosene and a stiff brush. Dry with compressed air or let it sit on rags to drip dry.
Repeat for the other shaft assembly.
NOTE: Defective gears should be replaced. It's a good idea to replace the mating gear on the other shaft even though it may not show as much wear or damage.
- After they have been cleaned, visually inspect the components of the assemblies for excessive wear. Any burrs, pitting or roughness on the teeth of a gear will cause wear on the mating gear.
Minor roughness can be cleaned up with an oilstone but there's little point in attempting to remove deep scars.
- Remove the bolts securing the throttle assembly (A, Figure 23) and carefully lay the throttle assembly and cable over the fender or back over the frame.
Be careful that the cable does not get crimped or damaged.
CAUTION: Cover the frame with a heavy cloth or plastic tarp to protect it from accidental spilling of brake fluid. Wash any spilled brake fluid off painted or plated surfaces immediately, as it will destroy the finish. Use soapy water and rinse thoroughly.
- Remove the bolts (B, Figure 23) securing the brake master cylinder and lay it over the frame. Keep the reservoir in the upright position to minimize loss of brake fluid and to keep air from entering into the brake system. It is not necessary to remove the hydraulic brake line.
