Thumbs up Cush Drive Mod

Hi, a big thank you to the inventor of this mod, and to all the posters on the subject. I've just done this, a little late if I'm honest, at 4500 miles approx 3500 may have been perfect. Anyway, what a difference, feels like a new twin rather than a snatchy jerky single. Thanks Mike.

Cush Drive

Hi, The cush drive mod lasted with little signs of wear, I've replaced the rubbers at 10,000 miles as I had the wheel off to replace the tyre.

What mileage can be expected from a new set of cush drive rubbers?
And if the mod is applied, how many extra miles does it buy you ?

Cush Drive Rubbers

[QUOTE=Crazydog;23694184]Like all of us that have the XT660`s , the cush drive rubbers wear is a pain.


I found an article some time ago on the XT660.com thread.

The chain drive sprocket takes a tremendous load from the power of the engine , which causes the rear wheel bearing to wear excessively , even wearing the Chain Drive Hub Housing ,
The bearing will become loose in the housing at a later stage,

I fitted a double row bearing as apposed th the std single *row bearing.
And with Polyurethane rubbers .I got 56 000km without changing the rubbers again.

You only have to machine the rear hub bearing housing 5mm deeper /
The Bearing I used is still the same dia. as the original.
And machine the inner spacer also 5mm shorter.
It still uses the Standard Yamaha Seal





[size=10pt][size=10pt]Bearing no, 62304.2RS From Bearing Man[/size][/size]

Mine still has the original rubbers at over 11,000 miles. Still no play in the back wheel. Don't know what all the fuss is about!!
