Best way to get rear axle out of a wolverine?

I am trying to get the rear axle out of my wolverine to replace the bearings, what is the easiest way to get the axle out?

Remove both rear wheels. Take off the rh hub, brake caliper, rotor and caliper bracket. It's not necessary to disconnect the brake hose, just unbolt it and carefully move it out of the way. The axle comes out from right to left, it should come out with light hammer taps. DO NOT hit the end of the axle with a hammer!!! Either use a wood block or a rubber faced hammer. There is a small o ring on the rh side of the axle, don't lose it, it does not come with most axle bearing kits. While it is out, change BOTH axle bearings. If you are unsure of what you are doing, get someone knowledgable to help you.

Thanks. I finally got it out. By the way, how much did the tires slow you down? Mines stock right now, with a cobra utility exhaust on the way and i was wondering how good it would pull slightly bigger tires. Also what was the best mod you have done on your wolverine so far? Thanks again.

My bike had 26's on it when I bought it, so the 24's made it quicker! I feel that they are a nice compromise, a little more GC, without affecting quickness.

Best mod? Hard to say. A pipe will help, but usually rejetting is required , too. Remember, a stock bike will outrun a bike with a pipe that is not jetted right.

Skids and cv protectors are must if you ride rocks or other tough stuff.
