Warrior 350 axle replacement

Hi, I am brand new to this forum and am sorry if this is in the wrong place but its the closest i could find. If it is in the wrong place, a move by a moderator would be greatly appreciated.

Anyways I have a 2003 Warrior 350 that had a bent axle. I got the stock axle out after lots of beating; What a pain that was. I just had a few questions about prepping for the new axle. The spacer that goes around the axle inside the bearing carrier was all rusted and the inside of the carrier is also rusted.. Not real bad but there is a little. Should I use some type of a cylinder hone to polish it a little bit, Or put some never cease in there and install the new axle.

Also i was wondering about all of the splines on the brake disc rotor hub and on the sprocket, should i sand blast those?

Here are some pictures

Thanks for the help,
Dustin

Welcome! theres actually a forum for only the warriors. search it on google. something like yfm350.com
i dont know much about your questions. but i can tell you that rust is pretty irreversible... lol So if it was me, i would first try replace those parts for new ones. What new axle are you buying? G-force's would be a good choice i think.

ya thats what i bought was a gforce.. the best price for the best quality. did a lot of research. new parts are pretty expensive so i was going to sand blast the some of the rust?

I would drill and tap it for a grease fitting and drill some holes in the spacer to let some grease through. I would not blast the area where the bearings go maybe just hit them with some 600 and 1000 grit to smooth it out. If there is any deep gouges in the carrier you might want to get a new one.

yeah the seals still let water in and that is why they are rusted. the center sleeve doesnt support the axle it just keeps the bearings center in the carrier. so its not to much of an issue as long as you can get the bearings in. the splined brake disk should not have a problem sliding on the new axle. when i changed mine i packed the carrier with greese then slid the axle in. i have a g-force on mine aswell but the best you can buy is a lonstar axcalibur. i would drill a greese cert on the top of the carrier and just like 4 holes in the sleeve. it will prolly hold half a tube of greese.
