PostSubject: CV boots   August 25th 2013, 7:21 pm

Hopefully all of you guys already know and will just make fun of me on this.  But I gotta tell you.  DON'T EVER REUSE A CV BOOT.

Short version of a long story.  Had 800 miles on rhino, cv joint was clicking.  Got whole new Yamaha axle.  Rode twice and ran a limb up into the boot and it got all twisted up.  So, I got the bright idea to use the boot off the old axle as it looked to not have any holes in it anywhere.  Bad idea.  Last night it took in water and slung some grease out, now I have a trashed cv joint with less than 300 miles on it.  Should have just got a boot kit from JBS instead of taking a chance on the old one.  Must have been a hole in it somewhere that I didn't see.  That would explain why the old cv joint went out in the 1st place.   

Lesson learned.  Don't piece it together just to get a quick ride in.  Fix it right.

Dad used to tell me that my uncle was such a tight wad that he would turn them inside out and shake the %*#$ out of them and use them again. LMAO 

I've had more trouble out of cv boots in the last year than I have in my whole life.  I should be good to go for a while once I get this straightened out.  Since I got two bad cv joints laying around I figured I would try a rebuild kit in one to see how that goes.

I got a cv joint rebuild kit from Amazon for $60 shipped.  It was a Quadboss brand kit with boot, grease, star, cage, and balls.  Put it all together yesterday and took it out today for a 55 mile test ride.  Abused it pretty good today and the rebuild was good.  The hardest part of the whole thing was the boot clamps.

They are easy to do if you don't try to force the cage in or out.  Get it just right and it just falls out and right back in place.  It's like a puzzle.
