      '11 Grizz 700 here and I ordered Yamaha front lower boot replacement kit 28P-2510G-00 which consisted of 5 parts. The 4 parts pictured plus a plastic bottle of grease...

      First time doing this and the videos I've seen entail removing the entire axle then removing the top boot to get at the lower boot. Now when putting back together the top boot area (even though the boot isn't being replaced) it's suggested not to reuse the old axle retaining ring but to only use a new ring. So, seeing as how the kit I ordered did not come with the 2 (I believe) retaining rings for the top part of the axle or a second bottle of grease for the top boot it looks like I'll need to order some more parts before I can start on this one. Whadda y'all think?
      Looks like I have all the parts (B, C, D, E) I'll need for the lower section...

      So now I need to get the parts (G, H, I, J, K) for doing the top part...

      Also, from what I've seen I think I'll be needing part 26 as well, which I think is an axle retaining clip. So, should I get this part too?
      So now on to these clamps that came in the kit...

      I've seen how other clamps work but not entirely sure about this one. The only retaining barb I can tell that's on this clamp is the little one in the yellow circle. Other clamps I've seen have much larger retaining nubs about the size of the ones with the blue arrows. So I'm guessing for this clip you use pliers to squeeze the blue arrow nubs together then hook using the small nub in yellow?
      And lastly some questions on getting the 27mm axle nut off. I've seen this done with a pneumatic impact gun on a video but I don't like using those things. One way I've seen it described is to jack up and take the wheel off, remove the center plastic cap, replace the wheel and lower to the ground for some traction. Put the machine in park and chock the wheels, then put your wrench on the nut with possibly a breaker 'cheater' bar and crank. Same procedure for putting it on except you would prob use a torque wrench. Does this wound like the best way to get this 27mm axle nut off without using an impact gun? Even though the wheels would be chocked I imagine the gears (in park) would take the brunt of resisting the torque on the nut when it's being forced off. Would this be too much force on the gears?
      Crap I know this is a long post already so sorry bout that. I'll just finish with summarizing my questions which have prob gotten lost in all that writing...
      1) Should I order the full second upper boot kit plus the axle
      retaining clip part # 26?
      2) How to use the retaining clips in the kit I got
      3) Best way to get the 27mm axle nut off.
      Thanks for hanging in there with me through all that

      Anybody know the axle nut size on a '11 Grizz 700?
      Also, could use a link to maybe a youtube video or a how to thread explaining how to change out the lower front boot.

      Picked up this 87 Big Bear from my grandfather. It has been sitting for quite a few years, so I am in the middle of rebuilding the carb and doing other maintenance.
      The quad did not come with an air filter, so while I was at the yamaha dealer a new air filter was pretty cheap. Except it was missing something called the element guide. I guess there is some kind of tube the air filter wraps around and sits in the square cutouts inside the air box.
      Is there any other manufacturers that make this part? Yamaha wants $60 for the element guide. Worse case scenario I just have to buy it

      I have an 05' LTZ 250 that needs a new rubber boot on the shaft. Do I need to pull the swingarm and rear shock off and pull the shaft out to replace the boot?

      There's a new trail guide online. Ride4Wheel.com will eventually be a listing of all of the places to ride in the Northeastern United States. Right now the Pennsylvania listings are finished. More will be added within a week or two. You should check it out, it's pretty great.
