Polaris axles

Recommended Posts

My son's 2007 500 Sportsman rear axle failed. The inner CV housing is held together by a spring clip retainer (second pic). This retainer is worn out and will not retain the knuckle. They are after market heavy duty installed by a PO. No markings on them at all, hence I can't find the correct re-build kit for them.

 

First pic, I bought a used axle off another Sportsman. It too is non-OEM. This knuckle is retained by stakes in the housing. The knuckle is not removable without grinding out the stakes. Which method is better? How does Honda retain the knuckles? I've not had a Honda axle apart.

I have never seen anything done like that before -- but I have seen the retainer spot welded to hold it in place -- they are very costly to replace

There is a groove inside the housing the ring is supposed to sit in under tension.
