My first video - How to remove RD400 Sprocket Cush Bushings
« on: February 15, 2013, 05:54:34 PM »
Hi All,  After much researching here and across the pond on how to remove the rear wheel sprocket cush bushings on a RD400, I decided to make a video on another way of removing them without having to cut them out. 

It's my first video.... so go easy on me :lol:

Notes on what I found in the process:

After removing all 4 bushings, the hub temperature was less than 150 degrees, as measured in the last bushing well closest to the bearings and seals.

After removing the 3rd bushing the threads on the all-thread were so rounded that it wouldn't extract the 4th bushing.  I cut off about 3"s of damaged thread, and was then able to extract the las one.  Long story short.... use a higher grade material :bang:
