Rear axle bearing replacement on an 04 Yam Kodiak 400 4x4

Recommended Posts

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!

The wheels need to come off. Everything off the axle. It should pull out from left to right as your looking at it. It would be okay if you pulled the sprocket off if it's chain driven.

Great,Thanks! Now how about installing it? Are there any clips or something that holds it in place? Just replace the oil seals and bearings and thats it?

Axle comes out from the right side.  You'll need a long rod/punch to knock those bearings out.

A blind bearing puller attached to a slide hammer saves allot of headaches on these jobs. Especially when the majority of the time you get to them the bearing has disintegrated

      Hi there
      I am in need of a manual for my KLF 300 Bayou 4x2 . I've found others on here for the 4x4 model, but was wondering if I need a separate 4x2 manual. Does anyone know?

      Need to change bearings on buddy's rear axle of a 1986 200x. We got the beast to run. But the rear bearings are shot. Got the c clip and nuts off but this spline axle thread nut is rusted solid. Any Ideas on how to it to budge? I would cut it off but Can't find a replacement any where.  See Schematic Part number 7 below. I can't get it to slide off the axle. Tried heat and Pb Blaster nothing. won't budge.  If anyone has a lead on where to find the part I would just cut it off. 
       
      thanks,
