That is what is called leverage. Nice pic Ruger. At first I thought you were loosening lug nuts.

We dropped our quads off to my cousin for their yearly checkup yesterday. He is a major gearhead. Former raceteam mechanic. 30 year machinist. Anything on wheels he can fix. Bike stores have called him for advice. Yeah. He has never sent us home with a bike that was still not fixed. Can't say that for every dealer...I enjoy doing basic maintenace but not so much joy is gotten from the major repairs.

I have advised my cousin that no matter what may be wrong with either quad, he is to tell me and especially someone else that might read this, that the Honda is what needed his help. Just one time I would like to not have to hear how dependable Honda's are. Suspect

Picked up our quads today. No problems for either quad. THAT has never happened before. I fully expected some sort of bearing or steering parts issue with my Yamacliner. All fluids have been changed. My cousin machined a mount to relocate my auxillary lights. I had them mounted on the top back of the front rack. It was a nice safe place to mount them, but the fuel pack created a three or four foot dark spot directly in front of the quad. Not good. They are now mounted under the rack toward the front. Still protected. Should work better. Ready to roll. Ready to ride... Very Happy

*** 7500 + mile marker maintenance ***

Installed new brake pads last night 'all the way around'

Broke down both rear tires and wheels - added tubes.
Pretty easy with a few tips and tricks from YouTube  Cool
They've been slowly leaking down from two small cracks
on both wheels, right where the weep holes are at.

Hey... also... for all the New Blue Grizz Riders

Keep those four (4) grease fittings checked
at the upper and lower rear spacer bushings
on the rear hubs, they'll last a lot longer.  Cool

Got it home and checked the 'Reverse "retard" switch', (a troublesome part on Grizzlies) I grounded it out, still nothing except just the same continued turning over. I checked and cleaned all the coil connections and started pulling all the other connectors that I could easily see, get to and cleaned the terminals.  Put everything back together that was tore apart, hit the little green button, she fired right up and purred. It blasted around the yard like it was new again. I installed a new air filter that I had lubed up and I gave it a bath while I still had all the plastic off of it.  So... I can't really say which wire or connection it was, but for an '07 bike it had to be something of corrosion or rust of sorts. Also adjusted the gear shift lever, now it hits Low and Park like new again.  Since the wheels were off it was a good time to change all the fluids.  Hoping 'she' gets to see 10K miles.   Cool

Thanks for the tip on fixing cracked wheels. I would have never thought of installing tubes to correct that problem.  Laughing
