    Ok I removed the clutch actuator from the left case. I put a torch on it and I was able to tap the shaft and the bearing out.There wasn't a keeper or lock ring.

    There was a hole in the top of the shaft about 6mm deep, It appears Suzuki had a special attachment for a slide hammer tool that fit into the hole, but I could not find it or a picture of it anywhere.

    I got a little bit done this weekend. I removed the bearings from both hubs.
    Here is the front hub.
    [​IMG]

    Here is a partial shot of the rear hub, note the the nest.

    Bearings came out of both hubs without a problem. The front hub looked like new inside.
    [​IMG]

    The front and rear bearing spacers looked like new. I think these are the original spacers and bearings from the factory.

    [​IMG]

    Then I pulled the bearings out of the swingarm. I used a Motion Pro Suspension Service Tool and once I broke the bearing loose, I used an Impact Wrench on the low power setting to spin the tool. It was fast work, 5 minutes each side and the bearings were out.

    The bearings were not worn, but they were rusted very badly.

    The interior of the swingarm looked fine, it just needs some cleanup.

    Sorry for the delay, I got busy at work. I have been making some progress.

    Do you think the chain guide block was worn out?[​IMG]

    Another bolt was sheared in half by the chain.

    Everything else looked good just a little dirty.

    The four rear suspension link spherical bearings were retained by steel circlips. They were very oxidized and difficult to remove. I had to compress the spherical bearing with a socket in a bench vice into one circlip to get enough clearance to remove the the circlip on the other side.

    You need these to pry out the circlips.

    There were eight of these circlips to remove.

    I just received a new oem Suzuki .025 piston and one of my crank bearings arrived as well.

    Here is a pic of the rubber mounted triple clamps. The stock bars were original but had been tweaked hard. Anybody got a recommendation on a bar bend? Does anybody know what the renthal bar bend is on the new 2018 XC Gassers?
