They will come out of the rear end with a big slide hammer. what a pain. blue tip wrench and a big hammer will fix anything.lol

Leaky seals, or upgrading?

There's a procedure at HL using a large dull chisel and hammer between the cv cup and diff, hammer around all sides, untill it comes out, might want to read more about it at HL.

upgrade! have read the post but dont like puting force on the diff housing as it is fairly soft. first one i have had problems getting axles out of. the slide hammer did the trick just had to go to the other shop to pick it up.

Guess you will have it fixed and ready to go real soon.

Did you just bolt the slide hammer to the outer hub or did you have to remove the cv axle and clamp to the inner cv cup?

wish this one would have come apart that easy. had to bolt the hub back on the axle and popped the slide hammer about ten to fifteen times before they turned lose. I fix 4 wheeler all the time these were the worst to come out i have ever seen. She is back together and running like a charm.

that is the true cave man way that can break the housing.

I got the front axle out when the bike was new...but a fell backwards and hit my head on the concrete when it popped out...But I hadn't had any luck getting either of the rear axles out to replace the leaky seals.

Truckman...thanks for the warning...might be best to use a Slidehammer like Kagriff did.

Gixxer just popped his out...bet it was Gixxer's luck day.

bones,

pull the a arm from the spindle and get you outboard jounts clear of it. than put the hub back on the joint and attach the slide hammer to the lugs with the adapter and lug nuts. quite easy like that. unless you pull the inboard joint lose like i did on one side. had to drive it out from the opp. side with a piece off brass.

Used a 13lb heavy duty slide hammer...Snap ring didn't compress, and the cups never came out...Just replaced shaft seals and went out riding...Not leaking real bad.
