    Lightbulb Stones getting into the spur gear area? I have the solution! I think....

    Hi guys I was having a major problem about little stones tearing up the spur, and I couldnt understand how they were getting in there... And just this morning, I seem to have fixed the problem! All I did was put a bit of electrical tape over opening for the locknut used to hold the motor mounting screw in place (directly in front of the gear cover screw), and it seems to have worked like a charm! So if any of you guys have been having this problem, try this, and it might just be the problem!

    My solution was to take the cover off. It's been off for a year and a half. It seems without the cover, things can fly out of the gear area instead of getting stuck in the gears.

    Well that could work too, but I found that doing that would cause grit to get into the grease for the rear diff, causing it to seize up... So I put it back on, and well, lets just say it worked like a charm...

    No, I am running the stock black gear cover... Just went out with it again, and still no problems!

    Like I said, I have run without it for well over a year. No dirt in the diff, no problems at all. I just don't get pebbles caught in my gears.
