Need late night help, Barnett Basket & gear?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I got my bike tore apart at work to install my new Barnett basket (right part # 321-35-01004) for my 07 crf450r, but the ring gear won't slide past there machined lip on there basket to sit flat against basket and rubbers?? Flipping the gear around is a little closer but not flat??

Any Ideas? I emailed Barnett, but being fri night probly no help.

Do NOT TAKE THIS AS GOSPEL as I dont have their INSTRUCTIONS in front of me but it MAY be possible that you are supposed to warm up one part in the oven at a certain temp and throw the other in to the freezer to help with an interference fit!

Don't have camera with me now. I have the starter gear pressed into place (using cold gear and heating up basket.

Now This is the easy part: place rubbers on basket and put outer ring gear in place. EXCEPT ring gear won't fit over the Barrnet basket centre and lay flat/flush to install backing plates and 8 screws.

I now have to pack up my taken apart bike and all its Parts (with Rekluse) and travel 80miles to get back home.... pissed off.

Let us know how you make out with Barnett. I have a new basket same part # as yours for my 06 and I too have that "machined lip" you are taking about. I have not installed it yet. See what Barnett says. It's like they did not complete the machining process.

Where is the "lip" you mentioned? Is it in the center of the basket? I put the ring gear on my basket today and it seemed to fit fine on my '07. I can take some measurements off of mine if it will help.

Thanks, I will post my findings.

Great pic MTgriz. Thats is were i'm having problems, my outer big gear will not fit over the centre of the Barnett to lay flush against the basket. You can see the small machined lip in your picture about 1/8" down from the washer. I tried to push it on with all my weight.... plus it needs to rotates freely to allow cusioning!

Thanks Guys, I Really need to contact Barnett.

Oh ya ,get new rubbers, mine were in 2 peices.

Thanks for the measurment offer MTgriz!! but your assembled now and they would be tought to get!

Bfair, I will get some measurment for YOU, I can measure my factory centre vs the Barnett (which is larger!!!!). Then you can confirm yours is the same size as factory.

cushons in 2 pieces will work just fine.. the small little tabs that hold the 2 halves together just make it faster/easier to install. Make sure you put the thick half on the drive side..but it is pretty hard to mess up. New are better, just don't think it's a must to replace if the tabs break on em.

to the OP, without pics it isn't easy to figure out what you mean, but it almost sounds like you have 1-gear upside down 2-wrong basket so check part numbers ?

Quick update for some actual measurements:

Stock basket centre shoulder dia= 55.94mm

Barnett basket centre shoulder dia= 56.05mm

Gear inside dia= 55.95mm

Real simple, my large outter gear will not fit on Barnetts basket.

Contacted Barnetts via email (there difficult to call) and sounds like I have to send it back to them.... which means a Full Month of bike tore apart (im in Canada). So I'm going to machine shop in am (on my new EXPENSIVE basket). Ill try and post pictures

Maybe this info/measurements can help others.

Sorry for the delay, but heres a Update and picture to possibly help others:

I ended up having the Basket machined down (1/2 hour =$60). Emailed Barnetts picures/invoice and the machine shop contact info for a third party opion, NOPE can't help you, you have to send it back (AND WAIT with your bike tore apart).

Yep, I know why all serious racers use HINSON. Plus if you think about it, if Barnett's SS inserts are so good, why did they come out with a "second generation" insert? Wait for there 3rd generation to come out and get a Hinson till then. haaaaa

You can see were the machine shop had to turn down the centre hub so my gear would fit. They didn't have to take off much, but that gear WOULD NOT fit. Yes it was the correct part # for my 2007 crf450r.

Thanks Guys, happy trails!!

This is a perfect example of why I prefer OEM parts. They always fit properly.

+1.. same here nearly all the time, but i did have good luck with a Hinson basket, and even an Ebay purchased $149+free shipping Magnum clutch basket.

Ya, but you have to admit the fact that the Barrnett part will last forever (now that it fits)

If the OEM basket had the stainless inserts it'd never wear out either.

      I just bought a Magura hydraulic clutch for my 2014 CRF450R.  Bought it thinking install would be easy, and I'm not sure that's the case now that I have the product in my hands.  I have searched the forums, YouTube, etc for install help specifically for my model year (2013 and 2014 are same really), and haven't found anything specific for the 2013-2014 model install at all.  Instructions from Magura are TERRIBLE, and are not specific at all to the Honda - generic instructions - so I'm debating if I want to return the product, cuz I don't want trouble or a big install job.  Question: for the 2013-2014 CRF450R install ONLY of a Magura Hymec hydraulic clutch - other model years are different and thus it won't be helpful for other model years - do you have any tips or feedback?  My concerns are below...
      1.  The 2014 model has a sleeve behind the clutch actuation arm that the Magura clutch slave cylinder fits into.  Stock, the sleeve holds one end of the cable, with a nut on the other end to keep the cable end tight in the sleeve.  The Magura slave cylinder, however, slides into the mounting sleeve  - but does NOT have a nut: the tension from the clutch actuation arm pulling on the metal Magura slave cyl tip end is apparently supposed to keep the Magura slave cylinder tight in the mounting sleeve.  Q: Will the Magura slave fit in to the mounting sleeve easily, stay tight, and is there any adjustment needed in order to keep the 4-6mm of freeplay that Magura recommends?  How easy is it to get the Magura slave fitted into the sleeve and the metal tip in place?  Is there enough freeplay between slave and tip end to mount in actuating arm AND the holding sleeve, so that the holding sleeve doesn't need to be unbolted?  
      2. The stock clutch cable and OEM setup runs out of the mounting sleeve (see pics marked "metal starts", and then runs through a metal sleeve that routes the cable through the engine compartment - keeping the cable away from the hot parts of the engine case, so as not to melt the cable insulation (I believe).  That metal sleeve is about 6-8 inches in length.  The Magura clutch cable, on the other hand, exits the Magura slave cylinder at an angle - yet has no such metal routing.  I don't think the OEM metal routing sleeve will accept the Magura cable either, so a) the OEM metal routing sleeve would have to be removed first before installing the Magura - and then b) you have to hope that the Magura cable can be routed in such a way with zip ties holding the hydraulic line that line will not touch or be close to the hot metal engine casing as you route it through the engine.  Q: how easy was it to get the OEM clutch cable and metal routing sleeve out?  Easy as unscrewing the nut on the other end of the OEM cable, on the other side of the black rubber cable flange in my pics?   
      3.  My stock clutch pull isn't bad.  I just like the feel of a hydro clutch.  Any feedback on how much better feeling and easier pull will be with the Magura?  What's your feedback on the difference?  FYI, I'm leaving my clutch plates and springs stock.

      We have a 2016 CRF450R with about 11 hours out. never ridden hard always check the oil and change when needed along with the air filter. Took care of the recall that was required as well. Well when riding the bike was stalled out. Went to try and kick start the bike again. the kick start lever just back up jamming my knee into the handle bars and some how ended up cracking the case right by where the kick start goes through the case. Has any one had this happen or heard of this happening? What is the cause?

      Any advice on what should be replaced while I have the top end off for a valve replacement. Will do headgasket and springs of course, anything other parts you would recommend while I'm going at it?
       
      Thanks!

      The dirtbike is on it's forth year right now on the same motor job. I have to jump start it. Is it worth me trading for a 2009 650 brute force with7000 miles? Need some expert advice. Thanks

      Just wondering what you guys do to remove black marks on your seat. My 08 crf450r has the red/black seat, and after each ride there are some black marks on the red from my riding pants. Not scuff marks, more like patches of black residue from my pants rubbing on the seat. I’ve tried the magic eraser which seemed to do the trick, but lately they seem like they aren’t coming off. Also tried scrubbing bubbles with a brush and no luck. Not too worried cuz I have an spare OEM seat, but I’d like to keep this one nice. Any ideas? Maybe I shouldn’t wear black pants?
