I went out riding this weekend, had a blast, until my chain came off... long story short when I was putting the chain back on, I noticed the dive hub that the rear sprocket is bolted to, was loose (side play). so I stopped riding :(

I read my clymers book and it was as clear as mud on how to fix this and or what might have caused it. I have a new chain and sprockets that I am going to change.

My question is, does this sound like I have bad axle bearings? Or is there something else that would cause this flange to have slop, left to right, not loose on the axle, just side play?

Thanks in advance, this is the best place on the net to get Raptor problems solved!!

Has the axle nut walked loose?

Yea that is how they usually do it. you wont notice one loose from the other. They will both back off together.

Thanks for the info. I will take it apart this weekend.... any idea where, besides the dealer, I can get the 50mm wrench/torque wrench adapter tool needed to take it apart??
