Are you looking to run a little bit larger tire or want some more clearance in the rear of your Honda Pioneer 1000? Well today, we’re going to show you how to install SuperATV’s High Clearance Rear Offset A-Arms. So let’s jump right in.
[00:17] First, remove the rear tires from your machine. Then remove the cotter pin from the castle nut. Then remove the castle nut. Next we’ll remove the brake caliper by removing these two bolts. Just grab your caliper and wiggle it off. Set it up out of the way. Grab your hub and slide it off.
Now we’ll remove the hardware for the shock from the lower A-arm, and then remove the sway bar link hardware. Pick up on the arm here and pull the shock bolt out, and pick up on the arm enough to get the sway bar link removed. Then let the arms drop.
Grab a ratchet strap and tie the shock up out of the way. Then remove the brake line hardware from the brake line connecting it to the upper A-arm. Then remove the hardware that attaches to the knuckle to the upper A-arm and the lower A-arm. Just pick up on the arm to get the bolts out. Remove the lower hardware first and let the lower arm drop.
Pick up on the upper and remove the hardware from the knuckle. Set the knuckle aside. Make sure you don’t let your axle completely drop. Pick up on your arm here. You can use the shock to hold it then pull your axle out.
Remove the lower A-arm hardware and the arm. Then remove the upper A-arm hardware and the arm. Repeat these steps for the opposite side.
[03:17] Now it’s time to get the rear offset A-arms installed. We’ve got the rear A-arm here. First, cut the zip tie off the bushings. We know this is the correct A-arm for this side because the “SuperATV” logo is facing toward the rear.
Slide it into the tabs on the frame and then get the nuts started on the bolts. Then grab the the knuckle and slid it into the arm. Make sure it’s lined up then start the nuts. Now slide the upper A-arm into place. Line it up and get the nuts started on the bolts. Now tie the upper arm up out of the way.
Grab the axle and reinstall it. I like to take it and spin it until you feel it grab inside of there. On an older axle you can plunge it in to get it installed, but this is a newer axle. I’m going to take rubber mallet and smack it right in.
Now get the knuckle and slide the axle into it and get the shock lined up with the A-arm for the time being. Cut the top arm loose and let it drop down into position. Take the bolt and slide it into the knuckle. Reattach the sway bar linkage and get the nut started.
Grab the hub and slide it back onto the axle. Reinstall the castle nut. Take the brake caliper and slip it back onto the rotor and get the bolts put back in. Use the provided brake line clips to attach the brake line to the A-arm.
Now we have all of our hardware started and everything’s put back together. Fully tighten all the hardware then repeat all the same steps for the opposite side.
And there you have it. That’s how super quick and easy it is to install SuperATV’s Rear Offset High Clearance A-arms on this Honda Pioneer 1000.
