bearing replacement

Recommended Posts

i have a 2002 grizzly 660 went out today and after about 20 miles had this awful squeel pulled over and it appears the bearing where the drive shaft goes in has failed any idea how tough this is to replace and can it be done at home with the basic tools a guy has. can't blame the machine i don't maintain it all to well and shes got alot of miles

Is it the front or rear and I'm guessing the wheel bearing?

If it's the wheel bearing, I did mine in an 04 Sportsman in about 20 minutes. The only catch is you need access to a press and a "tube/puck" to help press it out.

chasin its not the wheel bearing its actually the bearing where the drive shaft goes into the gear case looks to be pretty tought to get at i think i'm just going to pull the whole motor and case out of the machine and go from there at leaset i'll save on that labor. Thanks for the reply though

Is it on the front drive shaft or rear? Is it leaking any oil? Are you sure its the bearing? Could it be the splines on the coupler? They are known for getting sloppy. I have never hear of someone losing a driveshaft bearing on the engine. If it is the bearing I am betting you are in for a lengthy project! I have an 05 Grizzly that I had the moter out once. Removal of the entire motor requires removal of both diffs which requires removal of all the A-arms.

dozer and chasin i tore into it a little bit last night and have determined that it is not the bearing on the motor but the one on the rear diff so i pulled the diff and am taking it into a local bearing shop to have a new one pressed in I may still pull the motor would really like to install the 686 kit and the machines getting a little tired 4912 miles it could use some rings at the least

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
