Rockhopper Series One

Hey folks,

the other week my rockhopper xfer decided to spit out a gear tooth. i've since changed back to my stocker spare so I can get around.

my question is, what gears are replaced with the rockhopper gearset?
I'm 80% certain the tooth came from a gear cog on the input shaft of the xfer as that's where the noise is concentrated the most.

any help would be greatly appreciated. I am hoping I can replace the input shaft and keep my rockhopper. would be a shame to see it become and expensive paper weight (yes it's out of warranty period)

Re: Rockhopper Series One

I'll make the assumption that the Rockhopper is the same
as the 4.16 gearsets available in the US.The input shaft
and it's gear is different (31 tooth vs 44 tooth std.) but
it's a genuine Suzuki part.The intermediate cluster gear is
a custom part made by welding two Suzuki gears together or
machined from billet as Calmini does.The high range gear
(in front)on the output shaft is 49 tooth vs the standard
62 tooth gear and once again it's a Suzuki OEM part.The
low range gear on the output shaft is common.
31T input shaft part, #29111-80450
49T high range output gear,part #29221-80050
I'd think that the manufacturer or distributor of the
Rockhopper should be able to provide you with individual
replacement parts.
Hope this helps.Cheers! [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Re: Rockhopper Series One

Thanks heaps for the info. I'll be cracking the case sometime in the next few weeks so I'll know then which gear has the missing tooth.

Sounds like I might be able to get a stocker case from the junk yard and pull the gear I need to repair it. well I'll keep my fingers crossed I can [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
