What are my chances of getting this fixed under warranty? This axle is like 3 years old, stripped it almost as soon as I bought it and dealer told me it wasn't warrantied.. Just stumbled on it while sorting through my spare parts and wondered if Lonestar had some kind of lifetime warranty on this stuff?

The splines all gave way... the sprocket hub is surprisingly undamaged. This is where the sprocket hooks up...

Lonestar axles have a lifetime warranty. Just call LSR and talk to them.

LOL hell no, if I were using a translator you'd barely make out what I'm saying. I speak both English and French but I learned English mainly through TV, books and computers so I barely ever actually spoke it... Lets say my mouth isn't very versed at emitting the English language :)

If you need a hand with specific translations feel free to send me a PM, I'll be happy to do it for you.

Also, you'll probably be interested to know that ALL French Canadians learn English in school.. Lets say not everyone puts as much effort into it, but technically you should be able to communicate in English with most French Canadians :)

thats good I live in ottawa so I know basic french and my girlfriend is a french teacher down here but she can't have a conversation in french. she teaches something along the line of france french and not canadian french. She said she has to teach the kid that a hot dog is une chein chaud....where in the canadian french dictionary its "le hot dog". my translator calls an atv frame a "cadre de" I emailed a guy in quebec asking if he has a "cadre de" and he had no idea what I was talking about....my girlfriend say you guys call it "le chassis" which makes more sense:D

sorry for hijacking your thread buddy

Yeah we don't really call 'em "chiens chauds" here but we do know it's the proper French word for it. Lots of "french canadian" words are either straight English or variations of it. As for "cadre" in that particular case most would understand since it's the word we use for call a bicycle frame... We often all our quads "bikes" or "bicycles" so it's all the same. Chassis would be the proper word for it... Everybody knows the word "frame", I would consider it valid in French Canadian :)

And it's not because we speak "french canadian" that we don't understand proper French :)

Ah, well I finally got an answer from Lonestar... The splines are only covered for 1 year apparently. I have just finished writing an angry reply, we'll see how it goes.

I don't understand how/why they would cover bends and breaks on the main shaft for life but not cover the splines. In my opinion, spline failure is the less likely thing to happen on axle, everything else should be weaker, no? Chain, sprocket teeth, sprocket hub, sprocket hub splines, etc...?!
