Replace Flexi boot between swing arm and motor/ timing belt replacement

Post by markgurney »



Hi,
I have followed this forum to remove the fuel tank in my bike. I have the wheel out and want to change a split boot between the swing arm and motor.
Can I just slide the shaft through the swing arm. If so, do you have pics of the circlip locations I need to remove.

Point two: the bike has been stored for 7 years, should I replace the timing belts?

Thanks

Yes on the belts..check the how to section here and on other sites..sure there are some pics of the clips locations..you will need a set of clip pliers and a flashlight hard to see in there.
