So the saga with the quad continues, for those who dont know I have a 1997 yamaha warrior that is a project quad. Me and my man are takin it apart and redoin stuff. The steering bearing retainer is locked on and we cant get the old bearing out, we have again tried everything from lubing , heat, cranking on it, to breakin a socket wrench tryin to get this thing off. Normally these nuts are supposed to be easy, any one have ne other suggestions on what to try???:aargh:

What kind of heat? Are you getting it RED HOT?

Are you using propane, map gas? Get that thing RED HOT if you can. You may need to replace any seals afterwards though.

Not sure how it is on other quads, on Yamahas, the bearing drops in and then you thread a retaining nut into the shaft, the shaft is threaded. It is real low torque and comes out with a 29mm Allen wrench. Then the bearing will pull right out of the top.

The issue is the retaining nut has snapped a 1/2" Ratchet which had a 4' breaker bar on it. This sucker is in there. Heating it to red hot then muscling it may just bend the bracket and not break it free.

won't be able to snap pics till later. I just brought it to a garage that the company I work for owns and I put 600lbs worth of impact power on it. Didn't budge. Went both ways.

They didn't have the time to put the torch to it. My little propane torch doesn't heat it enough I think.

We actually bought some gaskette remover stuff today. We heard on another forum that its worth a try to get that bolt out. That stuff takes rust off like you woudnt believe. We are soaking it in pb blaster tonight and then the gaskette stuff tomorrow night and we will try to pull it again after soaking it. My honey broke a breaker bar tonight thathe just bought tryin to get the damn thing off. :aargh::aargh::aargh::aargh::aargh::aargh::aargh:

      Hi all, I bought a 2018 used 450 for my wife. She is having trouble with some of the real rocky trails close to our home. Her arms give out in an hour or two so I was thinking of adding power steering . Is this possible ? Anyone done this ?

      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!

      Hello everyone, did a search and not successful. Purchased new 2017 Sportsman 570 sp and my power steering is not working. Seems to have a mind of it's own. Works then it doesn't. Dealer says there's not a fix. Thought it was just me and it being a brand new machine with 4 hours on it. Dealership said it's this model only ? Not sure what a person in this spot is suppose to do and wondering are your thoughts mite be. Thanks

      Just got back from a 3 day hunting trip over nasty terrain. Last day did a 53 mile round trip and the return with Caribou meat. The steering bump on these is pretty bad. Came home with bruises on my palms.
      Anyone know of a good steering stabilizer device? I`m looking at the one in the link. Seems awesome, but the price!

      My friend has 2007 Honda TRX680FA Rincon. He wants to know if there is a power steering mod available for this? I don`t see anything in the service manual indicating it might have been a stock option.
