Hi I am new to the group, I have 2004 Yamaha Blaster and I am trying to install a tapered bearing rear carrier from Rad Mfg. Company.
Need help figuring out how to set lash at 0.
Can you guys give me some ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Simple.
Any tapered bearing you tighten up the bearing nut while spinning the assembly.
You will feel the bearings tighten up and then some drag on the assembly.
This is too tight but is done to seat the bearings and their cups.
Now back the bearing nut off again, you will feel it wobbles loose.
Tighten the nut up until all wobble is gone and you just begin to feel the bearings touch and drag.
This is zero lash, ie: no play in the bearing.
Most tapered bearings will have a bit of preload, but you didn't ask about this.
