Axle bearing replacement
Hey, I am the new guy. I am hoping you guys can point me in the direction of a How To on replacing axle bearings. I probly need to do mine just to be safe, but my riding buddy has a scrambler 400 4x4 and he has had a bent and wobly rear wheel for a long time. We always encounter mud and water when we ride. Until recently he couldn't feel the wobling wheel when riding, I would just see it when ever I was behind him. But he said he took it for a spin the other day and it was kind of bouncing in the back. Sound like axle bearings to you? He said he was going to take it to the shop for new bearing and then put on new rear wheels and tires. I said "hey, we can probly replace those bearings our selves". I remember one of my dirt wheels mags having the how to in it but I scimmed them all and no luck. Is this a pretty straight forward job for a fairly mechanical person with plenty of tools? Help me save my friend some $$$. Thanks, JFoster
Edit: I did some searching, but was unable to find a how to.
