2001 Yamaha 660 Raptor Axle nut issue


Recommended Posts

My 2001 660 raptor seems to be having some issues with the rear axle nut. Seems like about every 2 rides the rear axle nuts back off and loosen up.I average about 75 to 100 miles a ride and this is driving me insane. The rear bearings and seals have been replaced and the axle has been upgraded to an 2003 axle because i had a mishap with a tree,kind of jumped in my way...lol So i got pissed off and ordered a mod quad double locker after market axle nut to hopefully cure this issue. I would love to hear any input you guys and gals my have. Is anyone else ever run into this issue,and how did you fix it? ,Thanks a bunch

Put an aftermarket axle on and you have to tighten the axle nuts about every moto. The only cure for it is an expensive aftermarket locking nut like what you ordered.

Keep in mind that everytime you crank on the axle nut that you are putting force on the axle bearing. That will eventually lead to premature bearing wear.
