I am about ready to kick the whole damn thing to the curb!!! Any thoughts? how do you keep the hubs from turning i have it in gear but when i really bear down on it with the cheater bar i hear something in the engine and i am afraid i am stripping something!!!!!!

You took the cotter pin out right? :lol:

Mine was a PAIN the first time I removed it...I put a 1/2" drive 2' long breaker bar on a socket, and gave it a swift stomp to break it loose, first time was a bitch...no problem after that. Adding a little heat to it will help also...

I just set the parking brake and put the quad into first gear....


as for the heat, a small propane torch should work well. Don't go crazy, just hit it for a little bit until it is hot and try cranking on it.

He's talkin about a torch. Stick a rag or a old shirt between the rear sprocket and chain.

If you get a strong enough impact gun it will break them loose no problem without even touching the brake or anything. That's what I did the first time I removed mine from my 2009 and they were on there super super tight.

How many pounds of breaking force does the impact you used have?

Ok finally got those nuts off now according to the manual I need to take the four Allen bolts out and then start slowing beating it out. What about the chain and rear sproket when does that come off?

Loosen up the adjustment on the chain and just slide that off. the sprocket hub stays on the axle. you can remove the sprocket if you want but not necessary.

You just need to take the right hub off if you are just trying to remove the axle from the carrier, no need to pull the left hub or the sprocket...but you do need to pull the chain off of the sprocket.

Sure do! All I did was took the four bolts off the rear sprocket and loosened the axle carrier and tapped the axle out! :) the snap ring was a bit of a pain for me lol but you will get it.
