I have been trying to install a coastal moto genesis with 280/35/18 metz using la monsters post

http://www.m109riders.com/forums/showthread.php?t=83361

I cant even get to first base :redfaced: ... the first picture shows the wheel nestled in between the swing arms. As far as I can see , unless I deflate the tyre there is no way to push the fully inflated tyre in between the swing arms. What am I missing here ? The coastal wheels come with the hub and bearing attached.

I have installed the bits and bobs (technical term) including the brake caliper and am trying to mount the wheel. The front one was a piece of cake, the rear is a different story !! Thanks in advance to who ever replies.

Thanks for the reply Hink. Isnt that the diff with oil in it and doesnt La monster have it on in the picture ? As is evident I am very much a noob. So do I need to remove the diff then put the wheel in the swing arm and attach the diff back ?

Thanks for the reply T Bone. But thats where I am a tad confused. La monsters post indicates taking the hub off the rim, sliding the tyre in btween the swing arm and then reconstructing the hub. But my issue is that the I can even position the tyre because its too big for the swing arm. The hub attached to the wheel comes into play later in the game when I try to fit the wheel , at the moment I cant push the wheel in between the swing arm when the bike is jacked up.

Here are a couple of pics.Apologies for the poor quality





As you can see from the first pic, there is a lot of extra rubber . Happy to take the hub off the wheel but that wont get the rubber past the swing arm ?

Thanks guys. Billym109, I am in Australia mate, the time difference is an issue when I do get to the bike it will be late in the US. So are you suggesting take the swing arm off ? Isnt that a bit too radical.

didn't notice you live in Australia....
It a little but, I have done it with just pulling the hub, then you have to pull the side drive housing to set the u joint, if you pull the swing arm you can do the u joint with out pull the drive housing, it's up to you my friend....good luck

:agree: Billym109. When I notched my swing arm I had it on and off so many times I could do it blind folded now. But it was all worth it.:bigthumbsup:
Good luck Bro

Ok guys sounds like the swing arm will have to come off. Will get to it tomorrow but any pointers ? Any gotchas to watch out for ?
Please tell me why you are removing your swing arm????? Thats pointless

To install a 10" wheel with both hubs attached:

Remove the 3 acorn nuts that attach your final drive to your swing arm ( that silver thing that attaches to your wheel with a gear in the middle)

Now pull the hub out away from the swing arm... you will need to remove it completly

Slide wheel into the swing arm

Now slide your final drive back into your swing arm, but it wont go in the u joint unless you are very very lucky

Now remove the chrome covers on the left side of the bike, the chrome covers under your key

After removing these covers, there is rectangle gear box in the middle that connects to the swing arm ( this is your secondary drive), its held on by 4 bolts and one sensor held on by an allen head. After removing bolts and sensor, wiggle the secondary drive out. There are 2 metal gaskets behind the drive. Be careful, there will be some oil in the secondary drive. Place secondary drive somewhere close and safe.

Now put the final drive back into the swing arm and attach the 3 acorn nuts, but just a few thread, leaving some slack to play with.

Now attach the u joint to the final drive propellar shaft.

Now the tricky part......

Now you need to wiggle the secondary drive back into place and putting the other end of the u joint into the secondary drive. After a few times of doing this, its really not that hard

Make sure the two metal gaskets are behind the secondary drive.

Fasten the 4 bolts on the secondary drive and the sensor

Screw down the 3 acorn nuts on the final drive

Now place the wheel into place on the gear in the final drive, slide axle through, put spacer in, attach nut, and torque down to 78lb-ft!

stop you do not need to remove the swing arm all you have to do is remove your rear hub take the 3 acorn nuts off and pull the hub off you will not loss any of the fluid unless you set it down wrong as there is a vent hole at the top of the hub just keep the top on top and no oil loss!!! ok then you have to pull off your secondary output houseing this is easy to do also you might lose a bit of oil here but not very much at all nothing a rag will not be able to catach sorry i do not have a pic of this but it has your peed sensor in it and 4 bolts a that is off put your wheel and tire into the swing arm reinstall your hub and slide your axle and spacers all back togther and that is that part now reinstall your secondary houseing and button it all up THIS IS THE easyest and best way to do this ever if you pull your swing arm off your still going tio have to do everything i just explined to you!! good luck bro and if you need more help pm me and ill send you my # and i can walk you through it!!!

Need some good wrenches to brake the bolt loose on shock linkage.They are very tight. Take your time it's not as bad as it sounds. The how to,s on the web here will walk you threw most of it. Go to the search and you will get all the information you need. Do not for get you need to make your own large allen head to fit into swing arm bolt. A bolt,Nut and mig no problem.
Good luck any problem be glad to Help on information.

Thanks guys. Damguy and billym109 ..not taking anything away from you but being the lazy bastard that I am Id rather try out the other approach first as it sounds easier. irish4life and jrrose thanks for the guidance and the detailed instructions. I will give it a go tomorrow as am at work at the moment. I am in Australia so tomorrow is Sat for me. I will post back and let you guys know how it goes. Funny thing is that Lamont never mentioned taking anything off , only the hub attached to the wheel but I just cant figure out how the fat rubber goes between the swing arm with removing the left hand diff or dismantling the swing arm.No other post on the site mentions anything about this, all of them point to lamonts post!!

Does your wheel have a hud bolted to it on the brake side, is so you can pull it and put the wheel in and bolt it back on to the wheel, you can pull the secondary drive, I have done it that way to, it all up to you my friend....:bigthumbsup:
