I was gonna try and remove the swing arm etc for the replacement of my driveshaft boot but i was unable to get the bloody #*#@*&$ axel shaft out.Is there a trick to this 'cause i thought they were supposed to just slide out?
So i ended up putting everything back in place and might just take it to HSS which I'm not looking forward to.....$$$$$$. Unless someone has an idea I'll check the Gadget"s site again incase I missed something.

I don't know how to do it myself- but I have a manual that might explain it.
Where are you located ? you could have it for free ( it's on a cd ) .
If it is urgent than go to www.green-manuals.com ( you can also find them on Ebay ).
After paying the fee ( I believe it was 10 bucks in my case) they'll send you a
link where you can download it right aways .
Tom

BTW: I was just looking it up- the manual talks about a locking pin access hole in the propeller shaft
where you're supposed to remove a circlip at the rear end ?
-does that help ?

No,not that part I'm talking about the axel itself for the rear wheel after you remouve the the locking nut on the right side. I'm in Wpg,on Ness.

Hi,
according to the manual the axle should simply slide out to the left after removing
the nut. And then you pull the wheel to the right to get it off the gear case.
Maybe if you try to loosen it carefully by turning the axle with a wrench or
with a few slight blows with a hammer, but put a piece of wood between axle and
hammer to avoid damage.
I live 1 hour east of Wpg- so it wouldn't make sense to come out for the manual.

Ya thats what I thought as well,I even tried a hard rubber mallet but I was heasitant to try something like a steelhammer and block of wood in fear of causing damage elsewere. I had the little lady on the back a while back and we hit a wicked pothole and thought for sure at that moment I was about to have flat tires and screwed rims but all was fine when I pulled over,there happen to be a pickup stopped in front of me with a broken balljoint which I was thinking he probably hit that hole too. Now I'm wondering if maybe it bent the axel just enough to keep it from just sliding out the way it should but I can't see that.

Almost sounds like that the axle could have a slight bend to it.
But dry grease could also hold it in place. And you wouldn't notice
because when you would try to turn the axle it would still do it
but it would turn the wheel bearings.
It's a tough call , if you apply to much force something will give away
but it might not be the part you want to.
Maybe you should soak it in penetration oil, WD 40 or diesel over night
and give it another try tomorrow, just to rule out the dry grease
scenario....

The shafts are put in dry from the factory and can stick a bit.. You did the right thing - hammer and brass drift or a rubber/deadblow hammer is the ticket. When reassembling, a light coat of grease or neversieze on the shaft of the axle will help you for the next time.
