My brother broke an axle this past weekend, he is ordering 2 gorrilas. Can I change this with normal tools around the house or do I need special tools. And does anyone know the procedure of changing these axles?
04 450 s Honda
Thanks in advanced

Yes you can change with normal tools, the hardest part to do will probably be getting the axle out of the diff. just give it a real good tug, you wont break anything. If he doesn't want to spend the money on gorillas right now Eurobro has some stock ones for sale $99 per side. Just thought I would let you know.

Good Luck

another pain is the breaking the lower ball joint loose, it can be stubborn.

Or you can take the A-arms off.

Just smack it a few times with a hammer right beside the ball joint, or you can take the a-arm off like truegrit said.

I remove the bottom a-arm and leave the top a-arm on the bike. for me this way seems quicker and alot easier. Good luck

I would remove the A-arms and get them out of the way.

I dont remember having to break anything loose. Im pretty sure when I took the nut off the ball joint came right through the hole. Maybe I gave it a wack or somethin but the whole process took about 20 minutes for both sides.

Yes I can imagine stuff on your bike just falling apart too.

lol, should of seen how fast I got my motor out this time. Each time is faster/easier because I put in less bolts, screws, nuts in each time. Plus my plastics kinda just fall off if you shake them hard enough.
