My R3T has just turned 35K miles and I know I'm gonna have to do rear tire this winter. I service the splines on the final drive and trans output each time I do a rear tire which is usually every 6-8K miles. The splines have been getting steadily worse each time I service ( I always use the...
So I performed my first tire change and spline greasing. Used loctite 8012, thinking back, I may have applied a little too generously in the shaft but I dont imagine that causing a problem. My question is, would blue threadlocker suffice for the 4 nuts holding on the final drive unit? At least...
My final drive housing is looking shabby so I thought I'd get it powder coated over the winter (along with a few other bits).
Is it an easy job to remove? any tips or short cuts very welcome.
2005 through 2010 Rocket 3 Standard...see the listed links for actual fitment info.
I bought this final drive as a spare right after I bought my 2007 R3 standard. I read of numerous problems with premature final drive failure back in 2007 and had intentions of putting a lot of miles on my bike...
Would someone be able to tell how to remove and clean the breather at the top of the rear drive / bevel box?
It is something I have to check to try and figure out what is going on and causing an oil leak.
Well, the saga continues.
Had the seal replaced and all has been, sealed!
Until yesterday, under the bike checking out the starter motor and what is involved in that, and the rear drive is leaking again.
Not badly, yet.
I am back to the shop that did the work but I don't think they...
Noticed a small patch at the rear of the bike this morning and discovered that oil has leaked at the final drive onto the rear wheel rim, around the hub where it goes into the rear drive.
Before pulling it to pieces, what can I expect when I remove the rear wheel?
Is there a final seal that...
SOLD. I bought this on ebay around 2008 or 2009. I think the guy said it was off a 2007 Classic that was being converted to a trike. Its been sitting on a shelf in my garage all this time. Splines look excellent. It will NOT fit the single headlight R3 Touring model. It will only fit the...
just thort i should post this on here as it may be of some use to fellow rider's .
i do realise i'm in the uk but i don't think this should happen to the rocket no matter where you are !
i took the final drive unit off to attend to 'peeling paint' on the unit when i did this i found...
Running a 2007 Rocket 3 Classic. What are the recommendations on the type of final drive gear oil? I have heard everything from Royal Purple to Mobil 1??? Was going to go with the Royal Purple 75W90 synthetic, BUT, says on site NOT recommended for motorcycles?
I finally got her back together. Took her for a spin, everything seem to be fine. Looking for hot spots , (yes I'm talking about the rocket) touching the final drive it's hot!
I only rode for 25 minutes at 20C, any warmer I wouldn't keep my hand on it.
I changed the oil last year. Had no...
Due to a bit of a disagreement with a truck I need to replace a few items.
Need a rear guard (with plate mount and indicators but not essential)
Any leads appreciated.
I was doing the 10K oil change yesterday morning and while everything was off I thought i would drain the final drive oil and replace. I know it is a 20K change but it is not expensive, I have the oil and I wanted to spend time working on the bike so 'what the heck'.
After draining the oil I...
I have a replacement breather cap for the final drive hub and I can't get the old cap out of the final drive hub. I'm assuming that the breather cap is a push-in fit? I'm replacing the old one because the chrome plating on it was pealing off and rusting... Can anyone give me some...

Alright all you experts and others that have f#cked up a bunch of parts...I have a problem on one of the bikes I service and need your opinion. I did a search and found a couple of threads discussing similar problems but they all seemed to have different cures so before I do something extreme...
