I ripped open one of my cv boots the other day, does anyone know where I can get a cheap one? It is the left side as you sit on the bike. I am hopeing someone changed over to beefier axles and have their stockers. Thanx
Have you checked on ebay? I have seen stock Grizzly axles(new) on ebay quite a few times for a reasonable price. Also there is some guy selling a bunch of Grizzly parts on ebay and you may find one thru him. I know I will be ordering some Yamaha CV boot protectors on Monday. After reading your post and many more on other forums regarding "torn CV boots" the Yamaha CV boot protectors are the way to go. I think JPGrizzly has them and he said they are made of very tough material. Looks like thats the only way to go to protect the boots effectively. Good luck in your search.
OK, I just checked ebay and the guy with all the Grizzly parts is selling only 6OO parts, sorry. But there are a few axles(new) on there for a buy-it-now price of $159.00. I don't know if you are willing to pay that much but I figured to at least let you know about them. Anyway, good luck.
Is the whole CV bad or just the torn boot? If it's just the boot why don't you just get a replacement boot? A replacement boot is a **** of a lot cheaper than the whole new CV. Cabellas has them and they even come with a new grease packet and the crimp type band. Check them out if it could help you out any. Good luck
One of my buddies tore the boot on his Rincon, he replaced just the boot and the CV is still in great shape(he caught it early). I asked him about it the other day and he said,"just make sure you clean the CV joint really good before you install the new boot." He cleaned his out with "brake cleaner" and made sure all the dirt and small particles were removed thoroughly. He did however had to buy a "banding tool" to crimp the band on securely, the tool was $12.00 from a local auto parts dealer.
