Default How hard is it to replace rear axle bearings in a 99 warrior

I just picked up a 99 warrior two days ago. I noticed when I was looking it over after I test drove it that the rear axle bearings were extremely sloppy. I have already ordered new front wheel bearings and rear axle bearings with seals and just was curious as to how hard it is to change the axle bearings. That and the chain is terribly loose as well. I'm assuming it is the factory chain and sprockets. The sprockets seem to be in decent shape but the chain is really loose. How do I tighten the chain as well?

Id did it come with the simple warrior manual? If it did the chain tightening instructions are in there, its not hard

The axel barrings can be done by your self for the most part, the only thing you need done is the new barrings pressed into the carrier. You can take the old ones out with a hammer and a block of wood.

Another note that could help you, when buying things like barrings, try to find machine places that just make generic parts and take in your old ones and have them match it up. Buying from Yamaha or any dealer they are going to charge an easy 40 bucks extra

I ordered the complete front wheel bearings and rear axle bearings with seals for $30 from a bearing supplier that sells on ebay. The local yamaha dealership wanted $60 for just the rear axle bearings with seals.....lol.. I just picked up a new set of holeshot xct's for the front and rear and I'm going to get a new chain and sprocket set as well due to the chain being totally stretched, rusted, and worn out. I'm going to take the rear housing off tomorrow and hopefully get the old bearings out and then just take the housing to the shop and see if I can press the bearings in myself as well. I'm hoping all will go well.

Yeah you can do it all yourself. Me and my cousin, rywarrior on here, did both our bikes. Even his where all the bearings had gone inside the carrier wasn't too bad just a little work. We also got them off ebay. Pressing them back in is not too bad they say to use a socket the size of the outside ring to tap it in but we used a big screw driver and tapped all around the outside edge.

Putting it back together is easy. Getting the axle out of the carrier can be a pain if there is rust -- the inner race likes to hang on tight. Lots of grease when putting it back together.

Go for an xring chain. Before you buy check the price of chain sprocket set. Sometimes the difference is minimal between a chain and a set. Ebay it!

I was looking at the links of the chain closely and the chain seems to be ok. I am pulling the rear carrier out today finally and going to see if I can get the bearings out myself. I have the new tires on it and it looks a lot better now. I'm debating on just selling it after I fix it because my g/f wants another polaris with an automatic since she doesn't like the clutch on the warrior. I called the local yamaha dealership and they said that the value on it was $2,400-2,500 depending on the condition. I'm debating on just putting it on ebay this weekend.

:?: :?: Maybe I should check on the trade in value of my 2. $5000 would be a great down payment on a 700 Grizzly. Ebay you are lucky to get $1400 these days.

Well I don't have to replace any bearings now.... I just sold it to a friend of mine tonight for $2,100 without the extra wheels and tires I have for it. I still have a set of rear stock yamaha wheels with maxxis tires(22x11x9) mounted on them and an extra set of holeshot lookalikes(20x11x9) for sale. Guess I'll post them in the for sale forum if my buddy doesn't buy them.
