Big bear,Kodiak,etc SRA seal leak

Recommended Posts

If you see gear lube leaking from the seal on the left,or the seal inside the brake drum,replacing them will not fix your problem.There are 2 seals inside the differential that seal the gear oil.The seals you can see leaking are to keep water and mud out,the bearings are sealed.You have to pull the axle,pull the center section of the differential,then split the differential,to replace the inner seals.It is not hard,and you can do with standard tools,just be sure to put the shims back in.Because of this design,the axle splines,inside,get rusty,then wear.I recently did my old beater,the axle was very loose in the splines,when I pulled it out,the axle splines looked terrible,but the splines inside the ring gear carrier had much less wear.From the factory,these axles are a press fit,but,from info I gathered,does not last long.I think the axle is softer than the internal splines.So,when putting back together,I installed an aftermarket axle,it slid in snug,and had no play.I called a friend(old Yammer technician) and he said as part of a service for farm customers,they slide out the axle and grease the splines,1 to 2 times a year.I have heard some serious mudder/high water guys drill,tap and install a grease fitting in the axle tube,and pump it full of grease.Also,if you loose the left axle bearing(you will),by the time you notice,the bearing race might be very corroded to the aluminum housing,very difficult to get out,but,if you pull the differential apart,drives out easy from the inside.OK,that's my information donation for now.

      Have a 2001 polaris sportsman 500 4x4 atv and when I put coolant in the radiator it starts leaking from the exhaust. The valves are sealed but it stopped making compression. Do I need to just replace the head? I just rebuilt the hole top end and this is the only thing +valves that I have not replaced and was wondering if that is why it's not starting up. Need answers please.

      hey so never ran into this before but i recently got a 04 honda rubicon 500.  bought it from my doctor not running and the front brakes were locked up.   cleaned the carb and it fired right up and runs great.  these model atvs have drum brakes front and rear.  not a fan.  lost all brakes on this one when i hit some water and it got inside the rear drum case.  so i ordered new shoes for the rear end no biggie.  front is more complicated.  has hydraulic drum brakes not sure who thought that was a good idea but the pistons in the drums rusted and locked up from it sitting with moisture in the drums.
      so i had a choice to make- 1. buy new brake pistons ($120 for a set of 4) or 2. order super atv's disc brake conversion kit for $250.  i HATE drum brakes so i went with the conversion kit.  it said it was easy to install with no specialty tools.  so i order it and turns out i have to press the studs out of my hubs to get the disc on.
      anyone ever done this and if so how?

      After looking at the wire diagram I saw the blue w/black stripe wire is coming from the neutral and reverse lights looking for ground thru the neutral and reverse switches. If it finds ground, the lights come on. The same wire also comes from the neutral relay looking for ground at the same neutral and reverse switches. So it was easy to trick the relay into thinking the engine is in neutral all the time without having the light on all the time. Just cut the blue w/black wire at the relay and ground it. Easy
      Sorry the pics aren't better




      Now it starts in any gear and indicator lights work as they should.

      I have a Yamaha Timberwolf 250 2x4 that I purchased a while ago as a project. I fixed it up to where everything was working great in my opinion, however when I showed it to a potential buyer he complained about a vibration from the rear drive shaft. (Which I ridiculous seeing as he tried to wheelie it before that) Anyways I took the rear diff apart and found most of the seals and bearings where bad. So I bought a kit off of amazon only to find that it doesn’t have all of the bearings and seals. After finding that I decided to try to find a used good condition replacement but they’re all to expensive for me so is there a better alternative for me, or can someone point me in the right direction to get the rest of the parts?
