Changed the front diff fluid. Changed over to gear oil. Did the rear also with kawi gear and wet break oil. Fresh engine oil change as well. The K&N oil filters are out of hand now for 14.99 $ They used to be 10.20. Heck even air filters went up they used to be 2.96 now they are 5.73

New front diff axle seals, front ball joints, and wheel bearings installed.
Rear diff seals next. Just routine maintenance.
Should be good for another year of rough riding.

89 KLF300C 4x4. Just finished reinstalling new cv boots after last ones lasted 1 ride and split in 2 places. Rebuild front brake cylinders, replaced front output shaft ujoints. Now just need to repaint rims black instead of white and put some high temp paint on exhaust. Oh yeah, also replaced clutch shift arm and mechanism. I think that's it for now. If it wasn't such an awesome bike I prob wouldn't put so much into it. It just doesn't quit.

Yes, Sometimes go through two sets of wheel bearings in a year. Seals usually hold up for two to three years. Last year I installed tie rod heim ends with rubber boot covers - they work awesome. Made my own tie rod kit purchased from Speedway Motors.

Swanny52 had a new set of hdpe skids I installed, and pretty much had them tore up in a month or two. But he has elka stg 3 shocks, which I think has his machine a little low - he needs a 2" lift

Here's the old belt and how it fit in the secondary clutch. The belt has 920 miles and 83.5 hrs on it.



And here's the new belt. It sits much higher in the groove.



The old belt looked fine but it wore down faster than previous belts.
The stall was getting higher. Maybe it could have just been shimmed.





No way and I going to take it apart and not install a new belt factory felt.
Its back to its normal self. :)

I haven't changed the shims in the clutch for several years now. I just replace the belt.

I'm ashamed of you for allowing your girlfriends air filter to get that dirty. :oops:;)
And that was just after only two club rides!!! I couldn't believe it!
