ZA50 Bummer!

Re: ZA50 Bummer!

Wow, that sucks. Did it get dropped or does the friction just do that?

excessive end play

Re: ZA50 Bummer!

Ouch!

Re: ZA50 Bummer!

Exactly. Either that transmission was BADLY worn, or somebody rebuilt it and didn't do it right. The ZA50 requires very exacting tolerances. So exact it's almost impossible to get it right. I have 4,000 miles on one I rebuilt, with no problems, but I will never do it again. If it blows up on me, I have a near new E50 to replace it with. Peace. Jerry.

Re: ZA50 Bummer!

Yeah, I might just run it with an E50.

Re: ZA50 Bummer!

Were you going fast when it busted through, or was it engaging or what?

Re: ZA50 Bummer!

It was going fast and just locked up the rear wheel. I felt a little lucky that I didn't take an asphalt nap.

Re: ZA50 Bummer!

dang, that's the second one i've seen on here, bummer indeed. how many miles on it? I hope mine does not go like that >knocks on wood<.
