Axle sizes. 98 same as 00?

10 posts in this topic

Which axle? The '99/'00 rear hub is different than the '98 and older style so I assume the axle would be different as well. I think the front is the same for all.

'99 WR400

I believe that Yam went to larger axels in 99 the hub and rear brake disk are also different. The rear disk rotor is larger in 99.

While wer're on the topic of axles, sprockets,countershafts etc., I have simple question that you guys can answer. Which way do you rotate the countershaft nut to replace the sprocket? I tried to put a 14 tooth sprocket on the other day and couldn't get the damn nut off. I was rotating the nut counterclockwise (ie: same direction as chain motion) and it wouldn't budge. Is it a reverse thread or something? Anyway please advise.

Cheers.

My counter shaft nut was tighter than a mutha from the factory too! I didn't have access to any air tools (which would be the right way to do this) so I used a piece of pipe slipped over the end of a ratchet to get more leverage. I held the rear wheel (with the chain on) to keep the counter shaft from spinning.

If you do not have access to air tools you can also take a 12-14mm sockett and jam fit it between the countershaft sprocket and the swingarm/chain rub pad to hold the C/S sprockett while unbolting and torqueing.
