06 Prowler 650 H1- Oil pump gear replacement

Has anyone done this?
It was suggested by a dealer and they get around $200 for the repair.
The original owner tells me it has never been replaced and it now has 2700 miles on it.
Is this something that the average backyard mechanic can tackle easily or is it worth the 2 bills?

If you have basic tools and you can do this yourself. I have 3500 miles on mine and have been thinking about it but I look at it this way most of the ones that have had issues happened before you hit 3000 miles. Now that I said it you know the law it will burn up tomorrow. I can talk you through it if you want to tackle it .

Are you talking about the oil pump itself or the sprocket gear that mounts on it? Either way, they are pretty easy to replace. I'm almost done putting my 650 motor back together after replacing the bevel gears with new straight ones. I took A LOT of pictures during breaking down the motor as this was my first time. The maintenance manual is a really good source if you can download it, and you can contact me and I can help you with any questions or some pictures if you want......

Go for it! I put a stator in my AC 375 last year and it was a piece of cake. These motors are preaty easy to work on. Or at least a lot easier to work on than a 12 liter desiel and a hell of lot lighter.

I' m told its just a gear and it is easily replacable when doing a clutch job. Unfortunately the original owner had a race shop familiar with Rhinos do the clutch and belt and they never mentioned the $15-$20 gear.

The pump assembly is behind the housing behind the clutches. Not a really big project but it takes some time. New crank seals and o-ring time.

You could always add a little insurance and do the straight cut bevel gears while you are in that far. Don't get me wrong, it is more work as you have to take off the top end, take off the right side of the motor, and you will basically already have the left side close to off if you are doing the oil pump. Just something to think about..............

not hard at all you will need a very good impact the nut on the wet clutch is ON THERE and left handed when you order the gear get 2 OR 3 retaining clips also be carful of the housing gasket the the center bottom is very thin

I'd be more inclined to do the bevel gears before the oil pump gear. Although if either fail they can finish your engine off in a hurry. If you're concerned about oil pump failure, perhaps installing an oil pressure gauge would give you piece of mind without biting into your wallet too hard. I don't think the failure of the oil gear would cause immediate mechanical damage (unless of course the loss of oil pressure kills you before the gear failure is noticed).

Different story for the bevel gear, if it goes, it can take most of the engine with it!! No warning!!
