Did I destroy my rear carrier?

Recommended Posts

Was looking into reasons why my chain snapped on my '01 Scrambler 500 and was checking out the rear axle and found more front to back play on the rear axle than I ever want to see again.....

Got the axle out to check the bearings and I found that the right side (sprocket side) bearings were completely demolished, like there was nothing in there... I'm hoping this didn't destroy my rear carrier but since I have never once in my life replaced bearings I'm not sure really what I'm looking at (see pics below)... do I just need to replace the bearings/seals or is the rear carrier trashed?

I would take the rear carrier totally apart and clean it real good that way you can make a bettet decision. If the races arent chewed up nor the axle you might be ok but you have to take measurements to be sure

As long as the races aren't destroyed you should be ok. I completely killed my bearings a couple times and had no damage to the carrier. The last round the play in my back axle was so bad the chain actually came off the sprocket. It didn't break it just came off.
