2003 Polaris Predator 500 rear wheel hub???

Checked for you, the hub is different, but he axle is the same. This tells me that the hub will fit, but there may be something different about it, could be a different bolt pattern since the wheels are different also. Could also be that the different hubs result in a different track width. Given that, you could probably use the hubs from the '05, but you might need to swap both sides to keep things the same. Check the bolt patterns too.

The 2003 Axle and Hub are unique to this year 4/156 bolt pattern, and 24 spline axle set to a mid metric. Unfortunately for you, there is only one option at this point for hubs, stock. 99% of the predator riders convert to the 2004 model which used the 23spline axle and 4/110 hubs. You can purchase an entire axle, hub, swinger assembly from ebay pretty cheap, I see them on average for 100.00 for the entire assembly. As a 4 machine 2003 Predator Owner/Racer, I do know this 4/156 combo bites for hubs, but like any hub, you will have to replace them. The trick is to make sure they are tightened properly before riding the first time, or you will cause the infamous "wobble". Bike Bandit carries these hubs new for 117.00, and you can find stock hubs new for around 110.00 if you look.

      Hey y’all, I need some help badly. I have a 02 Honda foreman rubicon 500, it sat for a year (ran out of time) just did a full top end plus piston and rings on it. Got it running but it will not drive forward at all and will only do 2 mph in reverse. The engine or transmission makes a very loud whining when I hit throttle both ways. 
      I need some help I’m very unfamiliar with the hondamatic. 
      Any ideas or options?

      I have an Axis 500 made by Hisun.  I uses a solid rear gearbox with no differential action. 
      I would like to convert this to a true differential with locking ability.  I've searched all over trying to find a source with no luck.
      Has anyone done this before, or know of a source? 
      Thanks,  Tom

      Hi Everyone,
      I recently purchased a 2005 50cc Polaris Predator for my granddaughter.
      The wiring is a mess. most of it appears to be jumpered out (twisted together).
      I installed a new carburetor. The gas tank was cracked so I found another one on ebay and got that installed. There is no air filter box. I ordered another one but, it has not arrived yet.
      I did get it cranked with the kick start. But, it idles too fast and when you give it any throttle the motor dies off. The more throttle you give it the faster it dies off. It is very hard to start when it has not been running for a while. However, once it has warmed up, it starts on the first kick every time after that.
      I am looking for a little assistance in getting it running better and also a wiring diagram and service manual if possible.
      Thanks in advance....

      The stock driver seat cushion is separated at a seam. I took the seat apart and found that the material has torn and cannot be re-stiched. I'm trying to find a replacement seat. Any suggestions? Hoping for a used seat but couldn't find one on Ebay.

      Oil is getting in the air box from crankcase vent tube, I put the two hoses that go to the air box together then something started to smoke on the front of the engine. There is a filter? In the line I blew that out.
