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

      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

      This was probably the roughest ride we went on to date, I know in the video it doesn't really show how rough the ride actually was but boy the Yamaha grizzlys 700 definitely never enjoyed that run at all the silverbacks and Yamaha grizzlys are definitely not built to go rock climbing like we just did in this video. But that being said this run was a good one and Jon only broke 1 shock on his Yamaha grizzly 700 Follow us on instagram: instagram.com/Offroad.dan instagram.com/muddymillz
