    I did it once just to see what it's all about. Took me 30 minutes to take the secondary off check everything out and put it back together. Just be careful with that big o ring when putting it back together.........

    If you loosen the hub nuts to where it's just hanging on, get a couple of towels, one on each side you can work it in. I've done it this way before without removing the hub. I'm also one of the lucky ones that stabbed it and it went right in, happen to me twice once in one of my video when I'm installing the 2 piece swing arm. Should of brought a lottery ticket.

    I have the stock exhaust ......
    you are saying the hub can move enough to let me
    turn the 10 inch rim from the hub side whitout
    removing it
    ..I was under the impression that the hub was
    too big to fit in the cavity of the rim on the hub side
    I guess it could depend on the model of the rim
    my rim is the shape of the stock rim , it is a widened rim .

    Ha Ha , there you go Andy, I was convinced on trying the secondary side this time
    and now you remind me how easy it is to remove exhaust , it will get done,
    and I guess I will decide how to do it at the last minute ,

    I'm finished thread jacking Lamont's thread now

    What o ring are ya'll talking about pinching? My bikes been apart for awhile now waiting on a new swing arm. I finally got it mostly back together and reading that got me worried.
    I am curious about the fit of the rubber boot on the swing arm. It doesn't seem to be to air tight.

    .
    In another thread , Nemo mentionned he pinched the O-ring and he had a leak after that ,
    I'm assuming it is the O-ring in this picture
    there are also some alignement tabs I have read about ,
    you must put them back in same position .

    Ok. Thanks. After looking at the picture I might have put that boot on backwards. That sucks.
    Thanks for the help.

    I spent several hours with the help of my brother and couldn't get the driveshaft to slip back in place with the u-joint. Going to take another stab at it tomorrow but now I have two excellent ways of getting it done. Thanks M109 riders you've come through for me again.
