570 aftermarket boot replacement (it's been a while)

Recommended Posts

First of all sorry I have been MIA here for a while, been busy with school and work.  I'll try and reply on some other threads asap, but posting this one because I just picked up a 2017 sportsman 570 before the new year and popped a boot on it going through a mud hole.  The former owner had aftermarket axles on it to accommodate the 4in lift and idk what brand they are but they're skinny as heck and idk what boot to buy to rebuild with?  It's the rear right lower boot (under the brake calp.).  I'll post some pics when I can and sorry again I've missed yall on the forum!

Welcome back Jacob. We will need pics to understand better. I’m pretty sure I know the answer but to people that don’t know would like to see so they can learn as well.

So I tried making a stock polaris boot work but both ends are too big in diameter.  I'm taking it to my grandparents farm tmr to work on some fence lines so ig i wont be hitting any mud 😪😭.  Heres some pics of it in AL where I picked it up

The temporary fix is to use the oem boot and zip tie it back on. The right way is to get the right one. Lol. if to much play is in the boot, cut a small enough line to split it but still use it. Then take silicon to patch the hole.

Sorry was having wifi trouble couldn't get pics up last night.  So I tried a oem boot and clamping it as tight as i could and it still popped off.  Maybe what@06kfx440 was saying would work but I'm leaving rn-  just gonna run it easy and keep it outa mud and if the axle breaks it breaks😆👍

I did order a boot that I think will work, I'll let yall know

Got it done.  So I ordered a front end lower boot and it fit great!  Bought off amazon.  Heres some pics.  Super easy to disassemble these cv axles if you have the right tools. 

I bought a cv clamp tightener/cremper and a set of circlip pliers and pics and swapped a lower boot in prolly 2 hours or less (including disassembly and reassembly of the atv.

You can see in the first pic I was able to clamp the stock boot with a pipe clamp, but the lower end came apart and lost the clamp.

these pics are kinda in order of how I replaced the boot

      Hey fellas...I'm trying to install the rear left axle..there's  a bolt running through the end of the axle that goes in the hole where you slide the axle in...I'm having a hard time getting the bolt started on the threads..I was hoping to start it with my fingers and than finish it with an open ended wrench...its very hard to do because it's such a tight spot..has anyone ever done this job before ? Any help would really be appreciated..thanks Ed
