Default Diamond Drive Bearing Failure and My write up on replacing the DD bearing

Here you go guys. I took pics and installed the new bearing from bdx.

I started by taking the belt off the secondary then pull the secondary off. I then took off the bracket bolted to the foot board. That was in the way from the DD gear cover to pull straight off.



Then i took all the T-30 torx bolts out. I think 13 total.


then i gently pulled the cover off as to not tear the gasket.




then brought the cover to the work bench.


Then i pulled the lower gear off.


I used a pitman arm puller ($15 at napa) to get the 6203 bearing off. I had to stack a 5/32 socket on the gear for clearance.


I put the pitman arm puller in the vise and pulled the 6203 bearing off.




So i took the old bearing (6203) and the shims off and pressed on the new bearing (5203) till it seated all the way down.




My cover wouldn't snug up tight so i had to loosen the 16 MM bolt inside the shaft of the brake rotor.


Tipped it on its side to fill it up.


Put the secondary clutch back on, slide the belt on and your done.
If i didn't have to take pictures i could have done it in 20 minutes.

Thanks for the write up. Hopefully I never have to refer back to it though, lol.
