Pulling the CBR600 Motor (video)

Unbolting the sprocket

Unbolting the sprocket

Yeah, kind of a (fairly hilarious) how not to do it, if you want to try to re-sell parts, but it shows the chain, sprocket and swingarm pivot deal that I was wondering about before.  Not one fuck was given.

  1. Actually that’s a far, far better way of removing that sprocket bolt than the usual way. It’s usually incredibly tight and involves some brute-force way of holding the rear wheel and using a 3ft cheater bar.

    On an ’85 Ninja 900 I had to use a 5ft cheater bar and put a pipe in the rear wheel spokes & swingarm to hold it.

    A couple years ago I finally bought a power impact myself just for that one job. I still step on the rear brake to hold the wheel.

    On the SV-650 motors you have to remove this hack design of a weird ballscrew mechanism for the clutch to get to the sprocket. It’s then a nightmare of reclocking the ballscrew to ever get it to clutch right again. That’s just my vote for “stupidest design on a motorcycle ever”

    • Yeah, the impact tool is genius. The cutting of cables and hoses, and letting the motor drop off the jack, maybe not so much… 😉 But my favorite part of the video was hearing the guy muttering away to himself while hacking the bits up. 😀
