    stripped out phillips head

    those sound good, ill give them a shot, thanks for the quick response guys
  3. anyone have a special technique on getting out phillips head bolts that are completely stripped out, im a little nervous about driling it since its the bolts on top of the front master cylinder and would hate to damage that, i tried hammer and chisel method but got no where, anyone have a idea. thanks

    front wheel bearing help?

    thats what i thought at first but im pretty sure im getting it to seat, im going to try a breakaway torque wrench as my old style might be giving me a false reading, thanks for the help guys, no any one with a hub for sale maybe?

    front wheel bearing help?

    MOmilkman: i have a 2000 yz426, how long has yours had play and has it gotten worse, i dont want to be spending 20.00 here and their on spacers anymore but would rather do that than replace the hub Merfman: i just took the wheel in minus the bike, so i dont think the mech could of really checked it out, its a good dealer for the area i live in, anyone happen to know the dimensions of the hub, maybe i could try miking it myself to see if its bad

    front wheel bearing help?

    on second thought it almost feels like the axle spacers arnt seating in their good, they look seated, i noticed the old ones having major groves cut in them, it also has a 20in rim on a stock hub it that helps.

    front wheel bearing help?

    i notice the play in the seal area, i can grab the top of the front tire and move the wheel side to side just enough to notice the dust seals shifting, but it also feels like up and down movement for the whole wheel, i had a dealer install the bearings so i dont know how easy they went in,
  9. has anyone ever had bad wheel bearings or a little slop in the front wheel that doesnt seem to go away, ive been trying alot of different things to cure mine but nothing has worked so far, i put new bearings and the 2 outside wheel spacers on the front, but my front wheel still has lateral movement, could the hub be worn out this much,or the new bearings just be bad. the only other thing ive been thinking of is trying a new inner bearing spacer that goes inside the hub or trying a different torque wrench as mine is the old non breakaway version and maybe its not letting it seat propberly, any ideas, or anyone else have this problem, thanks

    clutch noise?

    ive recently bought a used 00 426 and everytime before its warmed up really good the clutch makes a weird noise, it seems to be like a low tone chattering is the best i can describe it,the noise goes away as soon as u pull in the clutch lever.but once the lever is released it makes the noise again, its suppose to have a hinson clutch basket, could this be normal for the hinson or the year of the bike, my 99 never did this, any ideas? thanks

    swing arm fix

    does anyone remeber the swing arm fix for 00-02 426s, the problem was the hat washer thing that holds it on being to long and cuasing the slaping noise/wear and groves in the top of the swingarm, what was the fix?
