Whoops. Didn't realize they had twins on them in '01.

Hit another big snag late last night/early this am: At some point the chain slider was allowed to wear out and the chain wore into the swingarm. It's just deep enought to have started touching the needle thrust bearing.

wow! a good welder could fill it up with aluminium weld and a bit of sanding work afterwards to get it proper to fit the slider and should be good to go.

tip, the welder should fill it up as is without the bearing removed.

Parts finally showed up after there was some sort of mix up with RMATV. I decided to start on the swingarm stuff and work my way forward. The shock had never been serviced and so it was peened. I filed off the end of the shaft until the nut came out, but I made a BIG mistake trying to reuse the nut It started to strip the shaft. Luckily I caught it and stopped. Now I've got to see if I can get the threads fixed up at a shop (I don't have a tap and die set) in order to reassemble... that's what I get for rushing and not getting a new nut.

Bottom end went together very smooth. Now I have to wait to have some time to finish up the top end. Shout out to Stevo for his hot-socket-in-the-inner-main-bearing-race-and-the-crank-slips-right-in technique and accompanying video

Hit another minor setback yesterday as I decided to advance on a few details while watching the kids play outside: The throttle cable (replacement was in original order) was seized to the housing. After some heat and PB blaster it came out. Also, the slide return spring was seized onto the cable holder/needle retainer because the nipple on it was not aligned to the slot in the holder/retainer. After pulling at it with a pick for a while it came loose, but then the holder/retainer was on WAY too tight and it collapsed in the slot area once torque was applied. I will have to order up a new one unless someone has a spare TMX laying around that they'd like to donate this part off of...

Need help!: I went to check the bottom end before moving on to the top end this evening and found that I must have e done something wrong with the trans. It is stuck. Neither the input nor output shaft will spin. Any ideas?? I tried not to mess with the trans on disassembly, but must've either moved something or seized something up putting the cases back together.

Also: the shifter won't move (up or down).

firstly try to remove the clutch cover and inspect the shift mechanism and if the clucth basket turns (main shaft). then if still nothing does not turn, unfortunately you have to split the cases.

I didn't want to split the cases in case the gasket tore, but I got lucky and it stayed intact. Something hadn't sat right in one of the case halves because I just disassembled, made sure it was in N and reassembled and everything was fine. I also got the top end and power valve done today and got the motor in the frame.

Mechanic cleaned up the shock shaft for me and it's ready to go get some nitrogen.

Thank you! I sincerely appreciate it. The retainer came today in what I hope was my last order for this bike. If something doesn't work out I'll let you know.

I got some work done on the bike late last night after the kids were put to bed. It's nearly assembled and needs the brakes bled. Hopefully she'll be fired up by this Saturday or Monday and ready to flip.

Brakes got bled yesterday and I'm getting close to a fire-up. I don't like the way the rear rim looks though. It has a lot of dark spots. I hit it with a scotchbrite pad and wd40 and it did not improve. I then went on to steel wool and polish and still don't like it. Would it be too much to start at a 120 grit sand paper to clean it up and then move on up until polished?? The front wheel is polished, as is the frame. So, I either have to scuff up the front and rear to match or polish the rear to match. Thoughts??
