Usually a whisel with da'chisel right where it turns up then pliers to pull it off ------ it might be a dirt and vine trap like it is ------ did the sleeve come with a driver sleeve ? Can you share the part number ? would like to see what they go for $ wise over here

Done a few bits and peices got my speedi sleeve on today i hope it works out. Also been working on make new steps. Its missing 1 of the plastic step bits so im not sure what to put in there yet maybe expanded mesh any suggestions??. Ive been putting off the last bit of rust right at the front where the model sticker is.

Im still undecided on what to do about my rims i was going to cut the outside lip off and weld a new 1 on but ive seeb how cheap i can get rims over in the US so nlw im undecided haha

the speedi sleeve is a great idea, but !..my concern is..is the sleeve going to be putting to much pressure on the pinion oil seal ?, as in..expand it larger, and cause it to leak way too soon ?. other than this ?, I think your doing one heck of a job taking this on !!!..well done !.

Curious to see how that speedy sleeve works.

I really need to look further into those, specifically for hubs. As these machines get older hubs will either become unavailable or get pricey, so finding speedy sleeves that will work on them would be a breakthrough.

For floorboards, I would absolutely go with expanded metal. As you can see, here in the states expanded metal floorboards are available in the aftermarket and are very common.

With your welding skills it should be very easy for you to throw a set together.

I made a set of floorboards , had some scraps so materials didn't cost anything , but for a bit over a hundred bucks you can get a set already made , painted with hardware and a pedal extension ------- no labor , no paint , no grinding wheels , no sand paper , no oxy/acc , no hardware , that's hard to bet

The point of the sleeve is its only .25mm thick so dosnt put any extra pressure on the seal

Yea and 1 of my dollars only gets me 70c us at the moment but to be honest if i bought everything new for this quad it wouldnt be worth doing it would cost too much. Steel dosnt cost me because i get it from work main thing it costs me is time. And ive been waiting 4 weeks for front brake shoes now and 3 weeks for a couple of seals and o rings..
