clutch and sheave grease

I'm putting the kms sheave blue spring and 14g weights in the rhino wanna make sure I have all I need before I pull it apart

What's the ideal grease to use? Where do u get it?

Anything else I need besides the sheave/spring/weights?

I have been using Hi temp disk brake grease for the last year and when I just had it apart to change the weights it all looked good.

Sheave, weights and spring-your all good! The have to pull the motor towards the passenger side to get the front pulley/spring assembly out. I used a ratchet strap around the top p-side of the roll bar to pull it over. It doesn't take much!

"I hope the porn channel in my room is disabled."

"No," she said, "it's just regular porn, you sick bastard."

I have a race rhinoesque cage no stock seat mounts seats dropped to the floor the side of the motor Is fully accesable I read the instructions on dunersguide.com seemed pretty straight forward. You guys buy the secondary spring tool? Or jerry rig it to take it off?

I forgot about your build, should be easier for you! I use a spare aluminum wheel to compress the spring, it is easier than some make it out to be. I did mine solo! Compress the spring a little and the nut spins right off.

I used the stock steel rim this same way, worked great.

ok got the cover off got the primary sheave off without an impact gun....stripped the last phillips head screw on the sheave cover gotta go buy a easy out kit.....now at my condo I do not have a air compressor to knock the secondary sheave nut off the spline....i can spread the sheave apart with screws you use to get the belt loose and stick a open ended wrench in there so that it hits the floor and the open end bites the screw in between the spread sheave but im afraid im goin to tear the front motor mount off cause with my breaker bar i get to much leverage trying to knock the nut off and the rubber mount is under too much stress

question have any of you ever used a cordless or electric impact? are they worth it i have all the air stuff at my dads...but now the rhino's non operable haha. any tricks to getting that secondary sheave nut off without an impact?

i got the cheapest 1/2'' electric impact at walmart (around $25.00),,, and there is no bolt or nut on the rhino i have not been able to remove. much easier to use than an air impact imo.

Rog told me someone used a Makita Cordless impact to get theirs off, I can't believe those things will do it. They must make them better now!
