Tha-hood I hv a 04 raptor 660 previous owner put a g force axle on and the sprockets are not lining up any help

Mad Dog If your hubs are loose on the axle then your issue is either with the splines on the hub or axle or with the torque you used on the nut. The carrier bearings will not impact the hub being loose on the axle.

As long as it's for a 660 raptor it will work, unless it uses the OEM locknut. Heck, banshee axles work too but there's a small offset.
It is my understanding, after speaking with one of the main guys at Durablue, that there Banshee axles and 660 axles are the same axle and there is still an offset issue for our machines. Isn't the durablue still offset? Terry at Durablue claimed this is the case on their Eliminator axle and as far as the X-33 I forgot to ask, but I plan on it tomorrow. Most of the other axle manufacturers (RPM, Lonestar, and Yamaha) make a different axle for the banshee and a separate design for the 660. I haven't checked with Firestick or the drag axle companies.

Awesome write-up! I'll be refering to it again in the future.

One other question: Does the posi-lock and clip replace the old axle nuts?

Good job, your lucky. I have seen this turn out very bad for a friend of mine. I also used to work at a hydraulic repair shop and know what it's like at times to straighten a non tapered shaft. There's definatly an art to it. cheers!

the feller got it right on snd only charged 15 dollars but i still dont have it running.
