removal of shaft drive from engine

Postby keithallensmith » Sat Mar 05, 2011 7:48 pm



I am pulling the engine on my gl1100, it is an 80, not an 81, and the book says to remove the lock ring on the u-joint, I don't see a lock ring, or split ring on the engine side of the shaft, any ideas?

If you slide the rubber boot back away from the engine you'll see the "U" Joint. Look inside the joint and it's there.

I have the boot back, is it on the engine side? I can't see it although I can see the 'U-Joint", not really what I was expecting, but if I stick my finger in there I can feel something like a bolt, is it around this bolt?

It's a circle clip..you need a set of right angle clip pliers..it is hard to see..clean the area out with some solvent..

That link isn't working.
Here's the diagram. The circlip is INSIDE the joint, accessed through the slot where the arrow points. Not the easiest thing to get at or off; you may have to bend your 90 degree circlip pliers a touch.

'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!
