Machine was never maintained properly before i got it so it needed new axles and i figured i should protect them as they were not cheap. Also needed other new front end parts all around so i built a small press and just did all 4 ball joints and the wheel bearings. Only tie rod ends left and going to swap out the steering column bushing and check that bearing before i can finally put it all back together and align it properly. Handy rig.

Already did the rear bearings and replaced what was left (not much!) of the ancient stock muffler (Its a '97 TRX300FW). The old girl also got 4 new tires, a spark plug, her fluids changed and i got her tuned up (will most likely receive a carb kit as well) and the clutch and throttle adjusted. After i overhaul the brakes she should run another 20 years easy...

WOW! Pretty awesome. Where do you buy all your chassis parts and non fabricated parts from?

      Does everyone run the tire pressure as stated on tires or perhaps a couple # below to soften the ride a little?

      What's a good long lasting tire dressing?
      I used to use this stuff called Wipe New - Tires but it's since been discontinued.  There was a process.  First you soaped and scrub cleaned the tire, then let dry.  Then you don a 3M chemical filter cartridge mask, because no joke this stuff was noxious, then you applied just a teeny bit to the provided sponge and applied to the tire.  Go around doing all 4 then then come back and do it again.
      The black lasted for a good long while...couple months before you had to do it again.
      Is there anything like this still out there on the market?

      My 1996 Yamaha Kodiak 400 has a cracked CV Axle boot and the axle wiggles back and fourth if you pull on it. It also clunks if you go from forward to reverse fast with the tires turned hard one way or the other. Im thinking a new axle will solve the problem. Can you guys walk me through the steps of replacing the CV Axle, I have never done anything like this.
      Thanks

      If you know you're going to be bashing your quad's axle over rocks and rough terrain, tape it up. Take a roll of electrical tape and generously wrap the axle from the swingarm out to the hubs. Standard electrical tape will work, but the heavy-duty thick stuff is even better. When you are done bashing you bikr though the nasty terrain, you can cut the tape off and still have that showroom shine for your next out to the dunes, where you don't have to worry about getting dings!

      Hello boys and girls!:howdy:I need a little help if ya dont mind.I need to replace the rear axle bearings on my 400 but Im going at this blind having never done it before. Ive looked it up in the repair manual but it doesn't give any specific steps on how to do it. I've got the left rear brakes off already as I was replacing the shoes anyway. Can somebody give me a rundown on what Ive gotta do please?I know I need to pull the right wheel off just havent done that yet. Do I need to take anything apart in the final drive or elsewhere in order to yank the axle out for instance? Which side does the axle come out from,L or R? Any details I need to know will be greatly appreciated.Thanks ya'll!

      OK everybody,I need some help here please. My 4 wheeler has got a bad wheel bearing I discovered while starting a brake job. Its on the left side. I've never done one and I need some knowledge how to go about it. Am I to understand I need to pull the whole axle out to do it. I've done it once on a car about 30 years ago,lol. I keep looking around for a repair manual but they're hard to find without having to buy it. I looked here on this site but apparently Im too junior a member to be able to download one right now.Bummer!  One other question if I may.When I pulled the drum off the spindle a torrent of water poured out,the brake shoes were covered in mud along with everything else. I mean the drum had alot of water in it. The shoes were so locked up after I removed the springs I tried to rotate one of the shoes and it wasn't easy at all. I noticed whoever had the machine before myself had laid a bead of RTV around the back plate but apparently it didn't work. Isn't there some kind of gasket for this purpose. I saw it calls for a dust shield but surely this wont keep the brakes dry or will it. Thanks everybody.

      This bike has a straight axle that is moving horizontally in the housing in both directions about 2 inches. Has anyone had the same issue if so what did it take to repair it?
      Thanks..
