I am working on a 02 Boss Hoss for a friend. He bought new wheels, matching pulley and disc from Marv at the Rally and it has a wobble at 115 to 120 mph. It also needs to have the hub chrome so here is where I am at. First I checked the belt tension and it was right on. The belt was dead center so I wanted to try the laser light deal like we do on our trikes. I used a laser level to butt up to the rear wheel and a ruler at the front wheel. I found that the wheel was cocked 3/4 of an inch to one side. I will worry about that when I get the hub back and mount the new tire. I had to remove the rear races so I could get it to the chrome shop and this turned out to be a bit of a problem. I cut two pieces of flat steel 2"X1"X1/4 and welded them to the races. Then turned the hub over and knocked them out. Worked like a charm so thought I would pass this on.
Will let you know how it goes when I get the hub back and do the alignment.

Got the parts back from the chrome shop and they did an extra super job on all the parts. The Hub is 3 times better than mine is so I wish I would have had the local guy chrome mine instead of sending it off to some big time shop. Got the swing arm caps and hub done for $160 so feel good about that. I have heard that you can't get the hub done with out a bunch of pits but this one is way out there in quality and looks like a machined one.
Will post a couple of shots tomorrow so if anyone wants to get there's done contact me and will let you know. The reason for the high quality is I had my painter take in for me.

Rear Wheel and Belt Alignment

Adrian, Would you please be kind enough to explain "how" to check for proper alignment of the rear wheel ? Also when I reinstall my rear wheel, I have a heck of a time readjusting belt alignment to ride in the center of the rear pully! There seams to be a very fine line here, it wants to ride on one side or the other, I'll keep adjusting,then all of a sudden it travels over to the opposite side? (while spining the wheel). All the rear tires that I have went through start cupping and sometimes seperating on the left side, running 55 psi seems to help? Thanks Craig

I am putting new rear axle seals in my 2002 bike and dont know for sure what part number the seals are. I went to wags site and pulled up Jacks parts list ( thanks jack) with part number R 18465 from napa for a 2000 bike. Is this the same seal for the 2002.

Bill , I'm not sure about the seal part number for the 2002 . Maybe someone with a 2002 can answer your question.

Hi Bill,
What I did was merely go to Commercial bearing with my seals and bearings and they crossed the bearing numbers and calipered the seals. They are standard sizes and you'll find them at any decent bearing shop.
