not that many I think Im at 1400 miles give or take. I talked to Casey JMC he has them but I guess this is a common issue went to an offroad shop and they suggested tack welding the balljoints in but I wanted to see if this is happenening to anyone else

Is the slop in the ball joint or where the ball joint slips into it's pocket in the A Arm? If it's the ball joint, grind off the tack welds, take the top off, drill a hole for a zerk, take a file or Dremel and cut a few lines from top to bottom for grease channels and then screw the top back on and weld it, more than a tack, when you grease them, the pressure of the grease gun forces the ball down and it seals harder against to bottom and you can't put grease in, that's what the lines are for so make sure they go out to bottom. When you screw the top on, make it snug but not binding.

Charlie..I have put some in with "green" bearing retainer loctite..also sometimes can get a "shim" under the snap ring to tighten them up..have also tack welded in place,just make sure the welds go where you can get at them to grind off next ball joint change...oh yea..and put weight on while loctite sets,or while welding...just my 3cents...Hardy

      New to the Joyner community.  Bought a used 2016 1100 sand viper in descent shape. Only 155 miles.   Runs great.  It just rattles quite a bit in the front when riding on rough gravel / hard-packed dirt roads outside St Johns.  Removed front wheels and seems to be coming from both upper and lower suspension arm bushings/radial bearings (see pic); both left and right.  Seems like some play inside the eyelets - as I shake the arms a bit.  I assume it's not supposed be loose in there like that and the bushing/bearings are worn.  Anyone have had this issue and how did you go about changing them?

      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.
