Out riding last week. My son was riding my friend's Rincon. He was falling behind. I looked back at him and the left front tire was sideways. I thought, damn, I know what that is.

 

The inner rod end ball had busted out of the socket housing. I was able to pop it back in then tied it up with pull start rope.

 

Worked well enough to limp it back at slow speed.3759cb937f24198a7847cf55ab26c167.jpge4b357bd7d12da50c87d76e4a92bfcd8.jpg570644e594a03378e5d117a04f4ee04c.jpg

I had tape and tools. Tight space. I could barely get a hand in there. I tied a slip knot on the rod first. With one hand slid it in over the inner rod and steering knuckle. Pulled it tight then tied it off to the outer rod.

 

Pics were taken after I got it in my garage and pulled the wheel.

Yeah zip tie might have worked. I usually carry a roll of safety wire in my tool box. But left that at camp. Was supposed to be an "easy" ride.

      2012 Rancher ES-- only when driving in 4x4 when I get to about 15-18mph there is a loud clunk in the front end and a hard downward jerk. Its almost as if its trying to downshift itself. It doesn't do it in 2 wheel drive.  I have checked the angle shift sensor and applied dielectric grease to it, changed the front end differential fluid (the old still looked good and clean) checked and adjusted the clutch. Hopefully someone can give me some more ideas.

      I am struggling to find boots that will fit my large calves. I'm not a large person just muscular calves. I wear a women's size 7 but have tried on up to my boyfriend's size 10. Surely there is something out there.... I can't be the only person struggling

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

      I have a 2013 KQ I bought it new but rolled it a few years ago. I have replaced the left lower A-arm and left tie rod, the steering is still a little sketchy as I just eye balled the alignment. But the major issue is the left front tire cambers out at the top and has wore the tire bald. Tires have about 2000 miles on them but other 3 are half tread and left front is a slick.. I can not see anything else bent and don't know what to do..
