How to remove Warrior axle?

I'm trying to take the axle off so I can see if my bearings are shot, and I'm pretty sure they are. What's the procedure? I don't want to take something off that I don't have to. Thanks.

You don’t need to remove the axle to see if the axle bearings are bad. You can usually tell by jacking up the back of the quad and wiggling the axle. If it wiggles inside of the axle carrier than you have a problem.

To remove the axle bearings you need to take off both back tires, then both back hubs, then the brake caliper. Then remove the 2 large bolts on the left side of the axle. Then with a block of wood and a hammer the axle should slide out to the right. With the axle removed you can feel the bearings to see if they are bad.

To remove the old bearings a punch and a hammer works well. With the old bearings removed clean out the axle carrier as good as you can. If its not gouged or anything its fine to be reused. To replace the bearings you will need 2 bearings and 2 seals (Cheapest on Ebay)(OEM ones are very overpriced). With the center axle tube thing in put the new bearings in. hammering them in with a big socket or the old bearings works good to install them. Then install the seals with a hammer and block of wood. Now fill the bearing carrier with as much axle grease as you can get in it and put it back together the same way it came apart.

It doesn't seem to move around too bad, but there is an incredible amount of drag. I took the wheels off and the brake caliper off, and I have to use both hands to turn the axle.

Maybe your jam nuts came loose and tightened up on your bearings. they are on the sprocket side of the axle, try and loosen them up a little and see if there is wobble or exta play. It could also be the bearings seizing up?

You don't have to take off the left hub (if you're standing behind the quad looking at it) to take the axle out. You do have to take the right hub off, and the axle should slide out to the LEFT (again, standing behind the quad looking at it). Just be sure to use that block of wood when you drive the axle out, otherwise you'll definitely muck up the hub nut threads.

Yeasus. If your lookin forward from the rear of the quad. Axle slides out to the right. No need to take the right hub or tire off. Left tire and hub come off. Chain comes apart. Axle nuts come off. Then slide ur sprocket off. Now the axle will pull out to the right.
