Timing chain replacement cost

Was quoted $600 from the Honda dealer for timing chain replacement in a 03 rincon. They say the motor has to be removed. Sounds high to me but I have no idea.

Download a manual in the link below in my signature to learn all about what it takes to do the job yourself. $600 seems high to me too, but that doesn't mean that's NOT the going price!

It may not HAVE to be removed, but trust me it will make the job alot easier. I am in the process of doing a top end job on my 04, and yes the engine is out. To replace the timing chain you must remove the front cover along with the torque convertor and that dude is on there, you have to have a special tool to remove the torque convertor. There is a company in Arlington, TN called turtle fountains, during the off season they manufacture specialty tools for motorcycles and atv's. They make the tool to remove the torque convertor, it is $60.00, Honda wants $150 for their part. When I get home from work in the morning I will see if I still have the guys card.

It doesn't have to be removed, but I agree with JK, it would be a lot easier to take it out. Since Honda changed to the longitudinally mounted engines, most of the time it's easier to just remove the engine if you have to remove either the front or rear crankcase cover. If you don't, you don't have much room to work in.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
