2005 Eiger manual shift rear axle end play

Recommended Posts

I have a small amout of axle movement in the left side axle. You can only feel it when its jacked up.

Am I about to have some trouble? Any thoughts? thanks

How much compared to the right side? Are you thinking bearings? Never had mine apart and I'm not sure if a "little" play would make me nervous?

I don't water ride but the previous owner never did one ounce of maintenance on this machine. I t does run and drive out ezcellent.

I agree the bearings are going bad on the left side. I just inspected it further and I also have up and down play. I just bought this machine last week and had to replace the right front bearing and front brake pads. The left front bearing was like new upon inspection. No foreign particles in there or water sign.

Any body pulled the rear bearings before on an Eiger? If so can you advise the proper steps.

My thoughts are: Go rent a slide hammer puller and buy ret ring pliers. I believe it will be fairly easy like the front bearing was.

thanks Tacomaj1, Manchester, Tn

      Hey all, I recently bought an 01' Sportsman 500 HO from my brother in-law that he's had since new.  It runs awesome, just has 2 slight issues that I am addressing.  1st issue is fuel dripping out of overflow.  I did some searching around and saw that the O-rings in the carb wear out and allow fuel to leak, so I replaced both the Orings inside the carb.  This didn't fix it and still leaking which leads me to believe the float needs adjusted, I'm just not sure on correct way to check and correct this.  2nd issue is no speedometer.  Also in researching this it appears to be Hall Effect/speed sensor.  I'll be ordering one of those to replace, which sounds like a pretty straight forward process.  I guess really my only reason for the post is to get some help on the gas leak issue.  Any thoughts?  Other than that, I love the bike and really enjoy riding it.  Thanks in advance for any replies.

      Hey all. I got a stripped hub on this 450r ,and I ordered some new oem spec hubs, but they don't fit on the splines. I can't find and I.D or a name at all on the axle. The splines measure right around 28 mm. They're a good bit bigger than the stock ones. I even tried the hub from a 700 Raptor, but no-go.

      Went to change oil and get my sons  2000 Suzuki King Quad 300 ready for spring and found the left front wheel wont move at all but the right does. Doesn't matter if it's 2 or 4 wheel drive same issue. Nothing looks bent, tie rod ends and ball joints in place jacked it up and shook wheel and bearing seems tight. Any ideas before I tear the dang thing apart?  Of course my son has no idea what happened.

      Was using the quad the other day to shuttle wood from my pickup to my wood pile.  When the job was done I turned off the Quad and heard a bit of a racket from the front end.  When I got down underneath the sound seemed to be coming from the fan housing.  fan was moving in spurts and not quickly... much like a computer case fan that's had it's day.  What I know.
      Temp sensor is ok, as the fan tries to activate fan is getting some voltage as it is attempting to spin.  When I first bought it used I tested the fan direct to battery and it was fine. The fan was working ok even not direct wired as I went on a couple of rides and when stopped and idling the fan did run Seems to be free spinning with my finger read up in the manual and they require me to drop the rad.  now I'm not opposed to that as the rad has some damaged areas I want to try and straighten out.  But if I can get the fan working without, I can leave the rad as it is until next year.
      Fan assembly is about 300 bills, any work arounds or alternatives?  I even thought large computer case brushless fan.  smaller ones are about $7 larger ones better quality probably far below the 300.  They run standard 12v DC.
      Anything I should be doing before dropping the rad... other than check for obstructions even though it seems to spin, and trying to hardwire it to the battery again for a test to see if it acts the same?
