How to change the Rear Wheel Bearings - By Rocmoc.

You will need -

Two rear wheel bearings, I got mine from snowman at No Limits Powersports, http://www.joyner-atv-utv.com/ but also available from Silver Bullet Motorsports, http://silverbulletmotorsports.net/ & http://www.jmcmotors.us/ Roller bearings

Two seals (metric sizing), part specs TC 45 65 8 purchased from Motion Industries, http://www.motionind...LocationsMI.jsp NOTE: Page 198 of the 2009 manual, page 183 of the 2008 manual,

says I need #3(03.06.13871-FB45×65× 13871-FB65X42X8 Seal FB65X42X8) and #32 (03.06.13871-FB45×65× 13871- FB65X45X8 Seal FB65X45X8) seals, but I know that the # 3 seals actually needs to be 62X42X8

Large socket set to break the nut loosen the axle holding the hub on. I have a 3/4" set and worked great.

C-clip removal tool, I have one but was easier using an old screwdriver trick.

Seal puller, I have a bodyman's dent removal tool with an adapter that works. This saves the old seal but you could use a screwdriver and kill the seal.

Remove the wheel/tire.

Remove the cotter key.

Remove large nut, someone needs sit in the Trooper applying the brakes to keep the axle from turning.

Remove the brake calipers, 2 bolts per caliper & two calipers per wheel in the rear for a total of 4 bolts.

Slide the hub & rotor off the end of the axle.

Remove the 2 bolts holding the backing hub/bearing housing to the swingarm. One on top, one on bottom.

Remove the bearing housing.

Wipe, clean so you can see what you are doing.

Remove the seal. The seal is in front of the C-clip & bearing.

Wipe, clean so you can see what you are doing.

Remove the C-clip, can be a pain if you have never done it before.

Slide the bearing out.


That is as far as I am on one side. Waiting for the seals. Why there are seals is beyond me. The bearing is sealed so it is just extra protection. There was grease in the area between the seal & bearing. Cheap insurance so I will put it back the way I found it. I can tell the bearing has spun a very very small amount. The fit between the housing & the bearing is still very very good. Lenny's tip to locite the outside of the bearing in place to the housing is important! But will make it more difficult to remove the bearing the next time it requires replacement.

Yes, my original bearing had wear & slop. IMHO not that bad but did need replacement. The bearing isn't as bad as the design of the housing is. Taper roller bearings should have been the real design but what the heck lasted 4 years.

If you see anything that needs correction, please post it as a reply. I'll take note, fix, and delete your post.

650 Sand Spiders (two cylinder models) with Thread Size 3/4X16 " can use:

STP S3614

Oil filter for the 650 Sand Spider - STP S3614 will fit without hitting the frame rail. The crossover in the Fram brand is too long, so although a PH 3614 looks as though it should fit, it won't clear the frame.

You may have to loosen the motor mount nuts (14 mm wrench) to jimmy the engine up high enough to install the filter. I had to take the nuts clear off to jimmy the engine high enough to get the Fram filter in there, but then the end of the filter contacted the frame.

You can see how close it gets in the picture, and this is the STP filter.

The filter has a 3/4" thread, not the more common (for imports) 20 mm thread.

some additional info I cam across. Some of it is redundant to what we already have here, but thought I would put it out here.

Passenger diff seal, Car Quest part # 3655 size 51.9mm O.D. x 35mm I.D. Fits 1100, 800 EFI

Front wheel bearings - NSK 6205Z-2ZR-C3 and 6206Z-2ZR-C3, SKF or FAG 6205-2RSR and 6206-2RSR

Conversion to tapered roller bearings is possible with some hub modification - 30205A and 30206A

Rear wheel bearings - Peer FWD 305532, 6006 2RS and 3006 2RS

Conversion to tapered roller bearings is possible with some modification - 32006X

Front a-arm ball joint - GE25ES 2RS

Oil filter - Mann W67/81, China SPC932, Bosch O 004

Brake pads - EBC FA482TT - tried to find these, but unable to get through an american vendor. ordered sets of FA473V to try out. Will follow up with full post when I get them in and try them out

Tachometer w/ temperature gauge - Koso GP-Style (55mm, 0-9,000 RPM)

Arctic Cat quads use the same hubs as the 650 Joyner so the brakes will also work from Arctic Cat. Others have found Wilwood brakes that fit the 650. These parts do not fit the 800cc and larger buggies

The Geo Metro and Suzuki Swift 3-cylinder 1-liter engine will fit the 800cc chassis with minimum modification

inner cv boots off a 1998 Geo Metro. They only cost $10 each instead of the $20 to $30 at a off road shop and available at any auto store! Fits 1100, other models not too sure

Want to add, I have not verified this. Thats up to anyone who may need a listed item. But if anyone does verify via use of any of the listed items, please let us know!

Replacement Headlights I used are Sylvania H5006 High/Low. I would imaging the number is the same for any manufacturer. The Headlight sockets to change it over are Dorman 9003 High Temps.....

Edit by Kinarfi, I just soldered leads to the lugs and used my own connectors, but the H5006 Lamps fit good.

Idle Air Control (IAC) for the Chery 1100:


A: D5148 round head for DA465 1.1L, some SQR372 0.8L, siemens system

I chose the "excellent" type, but you can also select the genuine part. It was $17 plus $30 shipping. It was this or $209 for a throttle body from one of the stateside vendors. They don't sell the components separately. Freewai was an excellent company to deal with and it arrived in 5 days.

For the starter solenoid you can use a 96 Geo Tracker.. Replaced my solenoid with one. Bolted right up... 1.6 GEO motor ..Make sure you check it out before buying for the starter motor part. I do not know if it spins CW or CCW plus I did not count the teeth on bendix. The solenoid is 78.00 at Advance.. 25.00 For used starter at junk yard.

      Back in 2020 when Covid first hit we were looking for any reason to get out of the house. Luckily right before that we bought a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon that provided the social distancing we needed out in the desert. Some friends/family came to town and we rented a Can-Am 4 seater and all hit the trails up in Sedona. These photos are from the Broken Arrow trail and Schnebly Hill. Both trails provide some excellent views. On Broken Arrow the Can-Am actually snapped a control arm. We rigged it back together with a piece of rebar we inserted into the arm, some JB weld and a ratchet strap which got us through the rest of the day. The person we rented from said it happens all the time and had spares on hand when we returned it. 
      Regardless, there is some excellent scenery and off-roading out there and I certainly miss it!

      Are you looking to see what Arizona and the surrounding areas have to offer and at the same time get your adrenaline pumping and enjoy the great outdoors? 
      UTV Offroad Adventures is your one stop shop for the experience of a lifetime. We believe in spending time exploring what this amazing state and surrounding areas have to offer, from the lower desert to the tall pine trees. We have it all while spending time with friends, family and meeting new friends with the desire to get outdoors. These events will provide lifetime memories in exploring and seeing parts of Arizona and surrounding areas that some only dream about.
      Do you own a UTV or SXS and want to explore the offroad trails of Arizona and the surrounding areas then look no more, we will make this dream a reality? We provide unforgettable experiences. These events are guided, safe, designed for all age groups, educational and a great time. We pre run these trails to ensure your trip is memorable and panoramic. Our rides are typically between 40-100 miles long and mostly a loop.
      Here at UTV Offroad Adventures we believe in giving back to the community. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to charities. Our primary charity is AZ Kidz Experience. This foundation raises money for Phoenix Children’s Hospital. We have also made donations to individuals in need of assistance.
      Here is a snapshot into what a typical weekend with UTV Offroad Adventures would include: 
      Arrive on Friday, check in at registration, and get ready for a great weekend! Many enjoy coming early to catch up with friends. Next, we get the night ride started, which includes a drivers’ meeting and staging for the ride. The night ride is normally a short 20 – 25 miles round trip. Riding at nighttime provides a different perspective of the area.
      On Saturday we start the day early with breakfast and a drivers’ meeting. The drivers’ meeting is where we discuss the trails for the day, the rotation process for turns, safety, quick draw poker, laws, radio frequency, wildlife conservation, staging area and other pertinent information. We will also introduce your trail leaders and the sweep vehicle driver for each ride, as well as, get all UTVs and SXS staged for the trail rides.
      After arriving back from the ride, relax for a little bit and clean up because the party is getting started. We will enjoy dinner, raffles, announce the winner of poker, and of course the corn hole tournament. Music and mingling are also on the agenda for the night.
      Sunday morning starts a little later with breakfast, shortened drivers’ meeting, and staging for the days trail ride.
      Remember where the pavement ends is where this adventure begins!
      Check out the website for all the different Events. www.utvoffroadadventures.com 
      Attached are the next two event.

      Hey guys. I have a 2020 rebel west rlx1500. Does anyone make or offer different ratio front and rear diff gears? I’ve searched the web but not a lot of info about it. I’m wanting to lower the gear ratio and run taller tires. Thanks in advance.
    • By KeysPropertyGuy
      I feel credible information is important; and I personally have friends and family all over this country that share the same passion for Side by Side Adventures that I do. This article is for all of you and the " Newbee's " like myself that are just entering the SXS Market, and don't know which way to turn when it comes to fixing belt/clutch issues upon upgrading your tires on your Side by Side to handle a particular situation such as mud and swamp riding, that put high torque on your drivetrain.
      In my case it is my 2021 Polaris RZR XP 1000 Premium that I just purchased. This is the product I will be speaking specifically about. This is a VERY expensive process make no mistake about it! I have over $2,500 in useless STM Powersports clutch parts, for my application and another $2,000 plus in tires and rims that I can't use, DON'T BE THIS GUY!
      First, giving credit where due, Dustin (Tech at STM Powersports) was very willing and responsive when trying to make his companies product fix my issue. For those of you who are not interested in all the details. Their clutches are not designed to handle heavy mud and swamp applications period, and can't be tuned, as they advertise, to work, in my opinion. I personally have over a hundred hours of hands on testing to back that statement up. Upon further investigation, STM Powersports seems to be a snowmobile clutch manufacture out of Michigan that has morphed into building SXS clutches that apparently work on snowmobiles and sand dune SXS racing applications, they say. Can't see them being any different with other manufactures either as all that use a belt run on the same principle, but I can only speak for my Polaris Application.
      My Problem- When upgrading my tire from the stock 30" tire to a 30" Aqua Torque Sand Mud Tire ( totally bad ass tire FYI ) that was EXACTLY what I needed for my mud, sand, and swamp riding here in Florida, I started burning up belts every 9 to 29 miles, which made no sense at all, so than began my research.
      Solution (so I was told) - I need a " Performance Clutch " that is adjustable so that I can tune it for my particular situation/application.  Made Sense, and I am mechanically inclined, being in the mechanical field over 30 years, so I thought it would be fun and I could get to learn something new at the same time. Always good to keep learning.
      My Goal - To save just one person who reads this a whole lot of money, time, and aggravation. I have spent well over a 100 hrs of personal tuning and testing with guidance from Dustin from STM PowerSports, watching all their tuning video's, and using some common sense once I understood the principle of how the clutch functioned, and what adjustments effected speed, rpm, etc. etc. etc. to no resolve.
      My Process - Doing some quick " Google " research " apparently I should of done a hell of a lot more, I was guided to Vivid Racing who sold me this STM PowerSports mess. They apparently are one of STM PowerSports product distributors.  When I ordered this product I was EXTREMELY detailed on what I needed due to my current riding conditions, the exact make, year, and model of my Kart, my weight, and the weight, make, and size of the tire I was replacing my stock tires with. The sales rep confirmed my needs, and assured me that a STM PowerSports Clutch was what I needed, to the tune of over $2,500. As soon as I started having issues though, my Vivid Racing sales rep could not be reached anymore, would never return any of my calls, and apparently after a week of this, no longer worked there, ie I was S.O.L.
      Pulling out my parts packaging I was able to find the # of the manufacture and found Dustin, a Technical Support Advisor for the Company, that also raced SXS. Any of you that want the real detailed information on the exact tuning that was done and detailed information for your own knowledge, please leave me your # and I would be happy to share all of that with you.
      To make a long story a little shorter, after over a month and a half of phone calls to STM PowerSports, changing clutch weights and position on the clutch arms, primary and secondary clutch springs, and doing test runs after every single adjustment and still smokin my belts; Dustin at STM Powersports was convinced there was something wrong with my 2021 Polaris RZR XP 1000 Premium. Even though it was brand new and only had 279 miles on it at the time.
      He said the transmission had to be out of alignment with the motor or something had to be binding in the transmission or drive-train.  Taking his advise, and that out of the equation, I spent over $300 on a professional motor transmission alignment tool, only to re confirm that everything was spot on. I again followed his directions on his " Binding Drive-Train theory and jacked everything off the ground ( another $150 in jackstands ) just to find out that everything spun freely, nothing was binding, and nothing seemed out of order there either.
      I also need to add, that during this testing " Process " I had gone thru 7 belts at approx $150 bucks a piece. I had previously installed a Razorback Belt Temp Sensor on my Kart so with every adjustment I could watch my belt temps and compare everything. The only thing I didn't know at the time (and guess it is kind of relative to your riding area, and temperature of where you are riding) is that normal temps are anywhere between 130 and 180 when really pushing it, on average for my Kart when it is running right. What I can tell you is, when it's not, at 250 Degrees your belt starts so de-laminate, 260 pieces come off, and 275 it blows up into a thousand pieces like popcorn. With this STM PowerSports clutch I could not drive down a hard packed sand road with my kart in 2 wheel low or high 4 wheel low or high for more then 9 miles before the belt temps would start hitting 250, so something was wrong; and all through this process it was never the STM  Powersports Clutch, it was my 2021 Polaris RZR XP 1000 Premium.
      Even after all my testing, per his direction, Dustin from STM PowerSports was still convinced it was my Kart, and not his companies product. He advised me to put all my stock parts back on, run it another time, and then get back to him.
      I again agreed, but told him that the whole reason that I purchased his companies product in the first place, was that I didn't want to run my stock tires and I already knew that my stock clutch set up can't handle my new tires for some reason??? or I wouldn't have spent over $2,500 dollars buying a new STM Powersports clutch from his company. I did as he requested and here are the results.
      Conclusion - My concern, I was leaving to do some serious riding on the Hatfield McCoy Trail System in West Virginia the following week. I was now praying to God that something would give! I was out of time to test his theories that were obviously just guesses at this point. My 2021 Polaris RZR XP 1000 Premium can't keep a drive-belt on it that can last 19 miles, at times, say nothing of the hundreds of miles that I was looking forward to be driving in West Virginia.
      I stripped off all STM Powersports Clutch parts, put on yet another new drive-belt, installed my stock clutches an tires, and took it for one last test run at River Ranch before loading it in the trailer to head to West Virginia. As I didn't have much time and honestly at this point, I was ready to call everything off. With all the original stock set up back on, I put it to the test, with my fingers and toes crossed (translates to praying my butt off) I put the hammer down for my last afternoon of testing I had left.
      I hit every mud hole, water hole, river, and small lake that I could find. If you have ever been to River Ranch in Florida you will know I didn't have to look far. I clocked ten miles, interesting, 20 miles, getting nervous now, 30 miles, it's going to blow any time now for sure, 40 miles???, now i'm kinda dumb founded! At 49 miles the belt temps were still only running 167 degrees tops, which I never had seen before. As everything was already paid and ready for West Virginia, I said the worst that could happen, is I would have to rent a Kart for the week and listen to more bashing from my friends. 
      Now for the BIG test. To the Appalachian Mountains where there are some real mountains and challenging situations, for real! 
      Results - In 6 Days I put on an additional 649 Miles, hard miles on my 2021 Polaris RZR XP 1000 Premium " just one belt " that already had 49 miles on it when I started, with not a lick of problems. The belt temperature never hit 200 degrees even after long crazy hill climbs. So, if your wondering why I am calling this product " BS " for the type of riding conditions I purchased it for, well all I can tell you is, it isn't my driving style, or an issue with my New Polaris RZR XP 1000 Premium, or the belt that I was consistently running (which Dustin Recommended I run). In my opinion it's with a STM PowerSports, a Michigan Company that is " Marketing " and " Selling "  a clutch product that they have not done any proper R & D on for the application they sold it to me for, or are Marketing/Selling it to everyone else who also has Mud/Swamp riding needs. They have no problem taking your money, and your stuck with it once you purchase  it, just so ya know.
      To my friends an all the Newbee's like me out there, I wish I could finish this article with a solution for y'all, but for now I am out of money, time, and patience to go through this process again. I have heard rumors that Duraclutch was designed by guys that are Mud Boggers and do swap riding as well as R&D their product for this application??? If there is anyone out there that reads this and has found a " Tested " solution to my problem I would love to hear about it. The Aqua Torque Tires I purchased are an truly amazing product, they apparently just weigh more then the stock tires and STM Powersports has no business selling their product to people that mud and swamp ride in" high torque " situations. They should be letting the public know that OR " Man UP " and spend the time, money, and do the right thing, and test an develop a product that actually works for the application they are selling it for, Before they sell it.  They seem to have no problem bragging that their product is made in America, while my Chinese Stock Polaris Clutch clearly out preforms their product for stock application needs, and a quarter of the cost!
