250ex rear axle

Well my ole 250ex needs some axle bearings. Before going through the sevice manual, I thought I would ask if you guys have some tips/tricks. I have the kit, which includes 3 bearings, 5 seals and one o-ring. It looks like I have to pull the axle, then drop gear box. IDK, any advice will be appreciated. BTW the kit was $69.00 isn't that a little high even at the honda dealer

I've replaced an axle in a 250ex but not the bearings.
It wasn't very hard. I believe it pushed from the left out to the right. I undid the bolts that hold the brake plate to the "differential" and banged on the left side with a rubber mallet and the whole part came out.
I would get the manual and check it out before and during the process.
Good luck.

Sounds like you're on the right track. Remove the axle, unbolt and remove the diff and split the diff case. Then knock the old bearings and seals out and install the new ones. Shouldn't be too bad if you're not changing the pinion bearings.

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.

Thanks fellows, I guess I'll find out about pinion bearing when I get in there. Will I need a gasket to close gear box back up.

No, Hondabond sealant is used instead of a gasket.

Well, I got axle bearings and seals in and everything back together.(I think) I mentioned earlier that my bearing kit had 3 bearings, 5 seals and one o-ring. This kit also fits other bikes. I am left with 2 seals and 1 o-ring. On the left side I have a double row of bearings and one seal, between gearbox and brake drum I have 1 seal, then in brake cover plate I have 1 bearing and one seal. I did not replace anything in gearbox. I did take the gearbox down and broke it apart, everything looked good. The seals in the box must be good, because after I pulled the axle, I almost had a panic attack
Can someone confirm that I got this right, or gotta do it again

There's a bearing and seal on each side of the ring gear and there's a bearing and seal in the brake drum cover. This doesn't include the bearing and seal in the end of the axle tube on the left side of the axle. The o-ring is supposed to go on the axle. In your pic, I can see the old one between the brake drum and the splines.
