I want to install a 41tooth sprocket, and it looks like I have to remove the rear wheel.......

1.) How do I remove the rear wheel? is it simply removing the nuts at either end and sliding out an axle?
2.) Does a sprocket change affect speedometer calibration?

any help would be great!

Answer:

1) Yes - be sure to support the wheel when removing the axle so there's no weight on it when you pull it out
2) Yes

thanks!

is there a particular brand of sprocket thats better than others? I'd like to get a nice steel one instead of aluminum..... any chance of that?

where did you guys get yours from?

You'll have to loosen up the brake caliper and slide it off the rotor before removing the wheel.

The speedo is connected to the front wheel... how would a sprocket change affect that?

On the newer Monster the speedo is electronically picked up off the rear wheel, actually the sensor reads the thge bolts on the rear brake rotor. The speed of the pulses are going to tell the speedo how fast you are going.

Step 10

...Also, if your bike has the cheesy gold steel alignment plates, completely degrease them, the axle nuts, and the swingarm. Now, apply fresh grease to the outside of the plates. This helps them to not rotate when torquing the axle.



hahaha...ha...ha...ah..um

I wish I read this before. That is, before I spun my cheesy gold steel alignment plates, and scratched the crap out of my swingarm.

Does anybody (Chris?) sell quality replacments, or am I going to have to have some made?

I've done the same thing actually but since I have a steel swingarm, only scratched the paint off the arm rather than dig huge gouges in them. I'd be interested in looking for some replacement plates as well.

i've got some heavy duty stainless steel replacement ones. i got a bunch from stuart and need to figure out what to charge for them. probably something like $25~29 like the ones i sell for the 900cr.

i do have parts for both steel and aluminum PRE 02/NON MS4 monsters. for y'all with the "big" rear axle, you'd need to ream out / drill out the hole from 20mm to 25mm...

I wasnt sure, because in pre 99 Mustangs (and many older automobiles), the speedometer cable is driven off the transmission thru its own gear system.

I now noticed the pickup on the right side of the swingarm (thanks Ducman!), next to the caliper.... looks to be a magnetic pickup that clocks the brake rotor bolt heads....

Thanks for the advice everyone!


Oh! I cant seem to find the factory gearing for a 2002 750.... is it 15/41?

GETME,
just thought i add something.

Make sure you put the Beveled axle spacer on the chain side back the right way, Flat side to the swingarm & the beveled side to the Wheel bearing. Otherwise the wheel won't turn when you torque the axel nuts.

i'd hate to see you make the same mistake i did!
