    Red face Champion GL1800 02' Propshaft query

    Hi All, new to this site and looking for advice. I have a Champion trike and experiencing problems with the prop shaft and need to know if there is a quick way of taking it out without dismantling the frame? Many thanks Karen, UK

    Karen, The driveshaft on a Champion GL1800 has a split front yoke and 4 bolts at the rear yoke.

    Remove the rear 4 bolts and then loosen the 6 bolts (hex type) on the front yoke.

    The 8 bolts that secure the rear to the swingarm need to be loosened.

    Remove the lower bolts and pivot the rear axle housing upward.

    The shaft has enough room where it can be removed without issues.

    You should get a long ball-head allen wrench (6mm) for the front pinch bolts.

    Thank you so much, I'll give it a go! Your advice has been invaluable
