Went on my first ride tonight, after having 90% off the transmission replaced, rode for about 2 hours, now it appears the ujoint may be broken. Its not fun towing a Foreman out of the woods with a rear end that is locked up!!!

too long.

That is why I hate dealerships, they always seem to do a half a$$ job, they probably just didn't tighten it enough and that is what caused it. Did it bend your output shaft or anything, or do you just need to replace the joint. Bad luck sucks don't it.

tie it to a tree and drive out from underneath it, shouldn't hurt anything, just do it quick. That is how I would do it. If I lived closer I would come give you a hand.

haha, I live in a condo, if I tied this thing to a tree and did that, I dont think it would go over so well, plus I dont think I have the nerve to try that.
I pulled back the boot over the ujoint, its definately broken in there, but I have no way of tellin if the output shaft is mangled.
6 days left on the warranty!! IM half tempted now to buy an extended one.

Believe it or not, i used to skate. I had a Santa Cruz board that i
customized to my taste. Not many skaters were country boys that
listened to country music & wore Wrangler Cowboy Cut Jeans. I was
the exception. I had Wrangler jeans stickers on my board with a guy
ropin' a calf. I was pretty good actually. I can still do it, but i can't do
all the tricks i used to do i'm sure.
