04 Z400 Axle removal/Installation?
Judging from the lack of response, and due to the fact your undertaking a serious mechanical job. Save yourself alot of trouble and drive down to the dealer and buy a service manual. If your rebuilding the rear axle now, what are you going to be doing 6months or 1year down the road? I've only taken the rearends off of a honda 300 fourtrax, but it's a shafty. Basically take the rear wheels off, disassemble rear brakes, take the bearing that's opposite the side of the brakes/cog and the whole assembly should slide out, I know it's Suzuki and not Honda, but like automobiles I don't think there's a whole lot of difference between manufacturers.
