My left rear wheel has a bit of wobble in it, when jacked up off the ground, you can feel the play, Lenny said something about it, I believe he said silver bullet had some better ones. We need these two guys to post. I don't know if my outer ring of the bearing is moving or if it's just the play between inner and outer races.

The stock wheel bearings are a double ball bearing. In other words, One outside race with two ball bearings each with it's own race on the inside. The problem with this is that the two bearings are so close together that they can't provide proper side support (the ability to hold the forces when the wheel is being pushed sidewise like when sliding sidewise). Also ball bearings have much less contact area in the bearing then roller bearings giving roller bearings about 2-1/2 times more support strength. I've converted mine to use two seperate roller bearings but it required a lot of custom machining. Mine now stays tight and I'm happy with the outcome. This is the best way to go if you can do the machining because you can keep the bearings the maximum available distance apart. Most people can't do this without spending a lot of money so I would then suggest that you take your old double bearings to a bearing supply house and see if they can substitute it with a double roller bearing or contact Silver Bullet as he has double roller bearings for this application. When replacing the bearings, be sure to clean the surfaces between the bearing and it's housing with a good degreaser like acetone or Dawn dish soap. My housing was a spec too large for the stock bearing allowing the outer race to spin in its housing. After cleaning use loctite to secure the bearing in its housing to prevent spinning. If you do happen to find two seperate roller bearings that will fit, be sure to install them so the roller cage faces to the inside (small sides of the bearings facing each other). Also be sure to use the proper shims in between the bearings and outside to allow for the bearings to be clamped together without play when installing the large nut on the end of the axle. The hub should turn with slight resistance from bearing tightness but not turn stiff. Just like when you adjust the front wheel bearings on your car.

      New machine, tilt wheel won't "tilt" and I don't want to force anything.  Owner's manual says to pull pin, adjust, release pin in desired position.  I can feel the pin moving, but wheel won't lower.  Any suggestions instead of taking it all the way back to the dealer?  Thanks in advance...

      HELP - my wife and i just bought a 2013 joyner trooper 1100 and we rode for 2 evenings with no problems. Went to ride last night and all of a sudden it acted like something was catching up and it didn't want to move easily. Whatever it was must've broke and now it moves with no problem but is making a rubbing/grinding noise somewhere in the backend. Could it be wheel bearing, differential, or something in cv shaft. Any info or similar experiences is appreciated.

      The  dashboard display  shows a blinking “o”. Four wheel drive does not engage. The accustomed engagement sound is no longer heard. Has anyone a suggestion on where I might troubleshoot? Thanks.

      My right rear wheel bearing has gone bad and made lots of horrid noises before I got it into the garage, I'm trying to break the 36mm nut so I can get at everything, but so far, all I have broken is my 1/2" breaker bar, I guess 6' of extension pipe was a bit too much - busted the 1/2" square piece, banged my wife's shin and bent a lug bolt that I'll have to replace. Called a friend and he came over with his 3/4" drive set and broke the nut loose while I stood on the brakes with 4 X 4 and lockers. Any advanced advice for what I'm going to find, I'm done with it for the day and going to go play with the grand kids.

      I think the front wheel bearings need replaced. Lately i've noticed some noise from the front end while driving.. jacked it up and both sides have considerable play. The passenger side more so. Kawasaki 92045-1170 replaces the bearing. its 2 per hub. which is 4. it's 25 bucks PER BEARING. which is $100 and some change for both sides. Kawasaki lists that the bearing used  is a  60/22 2RS ball bearing. i can find them anywhere from $5 to $10, BUT i question the quality, no country of origin is disclosed.
       Pivotworks.com has a front set but its $42 for each side. 42+42= 84, so thats better than 100..... any one ever bought anything from pivot works?
       I checked the local auto parts stores for the bearing but nada.
