2008 VStar 1100 final drive problems
Having a problem getting my rear wheel to mount properly. I removed it to get the tire replaced at the dealership. I followed the instructions in the Clymer manual. I took it for a test drive and noticed a slight vibration at 70kmh when I was accelerating, so I took a closer look at the rear wheel when I got home. I noticed that when I tightened the 4 bolts that mount the final gear case to the swingarm, it pulls the final gear case out of alignment, the gap between the rear hub and the final gear case is not even, back is closer than the front.
I have removed and checked everything but I can't figure out whats causing the problem, but I did notice that the distance collar may have been spinning, it had lines on, I don't think its supposed to spin in the ring gear.......
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I can't get this figured out. My next option is the dealership.
