    08 RXP-X

    I'm trying to change the wear ring to one of those pesky new dark plastic ones. I'm trying to get the nose cone off so is doesn't get damaged. Any ideas? I removed the hex bolts and the thing won't budge. Has anyone tried this without removing the nose cone?

    Use an orange dead blow, or rubber mallet and gently rap on one side, switch to the other and repeat. The first time removing it can take time, but it will come off.
    Oh, and when reassembling, wipe out all of the thick grease and use a full synthetic 75w-90 diff fluid instead. Fill the cone @2/5 full (height-wise) and reassemble. Most of us do this and have had great results!
    Good luck!
