Prairie 360 Diagram Doesn't Match What I Have - Help?

I've got an 03 Prairie 360 4x4 that needs a left front ball joint and knuckle assembly. On the diagram (from PartShark - https://www.partshark.com/oemparts/a/kaw/50a852a0f870021a9c423c20/suspension ) they show the ball joint as a part of the knuckle assembly, extending down into the lower a-arm and held on with a nut. On the four wheeler I have, the ball joint is pressed into the lower a-arm and extends upwards into the knuckle assembly and is held in place with a bolt going horizontally, clamping the ball joint in place.

Any idea on why the diagram is different and how I can find the actual parts I need?

Ok...  There's a 360 Prairie and there's a 360 Prairie Advantage Classic..  The 360 prairie has that other sort of suspension, and your's looks like the adantage classic.

      Hello All,

      I have a 1996 Arctic Cat Bearcat 454 and am in a bit of a quandry. I had a bunch of work done on it over the past couple years...new carb, rear brakes, rear axle and bearings. When the rear axle was replaced the shop noticed the left rear hub was stripped. Problem is, the part (1502-178) is no longer available. I've checked junkyards, ebay and other online parts sites across North America and nothing available. Hate to park the bike after all this work just because of a simple hub. 

      I have two questions...the front hub (part number 1502-177) how much different would it be from the rear hub? This part is readily available. Would the axles be different diameters?

      If these are two different parts and we can't make them work, is it possible to take the existing stripped hub and just weld it to the axle? I know it may sound drastic but was wondering if it would not be too crazy?
      Thanks for your time

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

      First time working with a Honda-Matic transmission. I didn't even know what I was getting into when I purchased this running beat up farm workhorse quad with black oil. I was thinking I could tear the cases apart and find the bad bearing, causing the random squealing noise when you put it into gear and give it gas. Upon opening the engine covers, I Learned about the Honda Matic automatic transmission and realized there's more than just an electronic shift motor going on in these quads. With my learning curve in major education mode, I'm now wondering two possible culprits to the squealing as I've torn the motor down and am staring at the Honda Matic transmission.

      Two possible issues:
      1. The bearing that is squealing is unfortunately inside the hondamatic unit hydraulic transmission which is apparently not serviceable? A new unit is $1,900 to replace it! Yikes!
      2. The pull starter rope snapped and someone replaced with the wrong pull starter rope that eventually became severely worn out and the centrifugal lever/catch shows signs of wear from rubbing against the housing.
      Thinking now the pull starter has nothing to do with a squealing that loud, so my attention is now on the Hondamatic unit, 
      Has anyone gotten inside their cases to inspect the Honda Matic transmission?
      There's a only 1or 2 videos out there that are not helpful for tear down and inspection.
      I understand it can't be rebuilt but wondering if anyone has looked deep enough into one to clean it out from running dirty oil? Possible identify bad parts.
      I refuse to believe Honda is engineeering these as completely non-serviceable?
      Thinking I will try to disassemble the Hondamatic unit m. Hopefully get into it and get all the dirty oil out and replace with fresh? Any special tools needed?
      Any and all thoughts/experiences with Hondamatic units would be great conversation for me..

      I also have a magnum 4x4 that I am working on it is getting a new piston, In the tear down I pulled off the flywheel
      and found that all the magnets are not attached? why does this happen? there all in good shape so is it possible
      to reattach them to the flywheel? I can buy a different flywheel, but it looks like around $300 or more and one of them on Ebay
      looks like the spacing is off a little so it may have the same issue.
      the stator looks good also

      Was told there was some good information on this forum, so I'm here engaging in some good ole conversation haha. Bought a buggy aka shitcart for 100 dollars. Thing was a woods toy for the past owner. Used and abused until she went boom and was left in a field to die. All things considered that may be an exageration, but the top end of the warrior 350 that was on board was absolutely mangled. Piston and head assembly were totaled. Have a new jug, piston, and head assembly, but struggling to get the crankcase back together without the transmission binding. Can share pics that are on my phone if anyone is interested in seeing this shitty story unfold.
