Rear Bearings

Click the image to open in full size.

Got this for $800. Rides fine because the back end. I suppose it was worth the money I paid for it. They even delivered it. (Hour and a half trip) Anyways, went riding today and noticed my back end shakes when getting at high speeds. On the right side of the chain sprocket in the back end, it seems as if there is a gap. You can hold the handle bars and move the quad back and forth and see it. Would this be the bearing casing? If so, how much would it cost to fix? Would it be best to fix it myself? Anyone got any PDF links for 300EX Repair Manual? Please answer. Don't tell me I need new tires though, I already know that! =P

Also, how much would it cost to put a shorter back axle on it? I've got that extended one and it looks like shit. Back wheels still out so much farther than the front ones.

your bearings are shot..replace them..as far as the axle goes..you can either go to ebay..or oem..which means dealer item..that will cost ya !..lol..i'd try ebay first for a stock axle..as far as the bearings go..new..they will run you about 45 to 50 bucks each..yes..it takes a set for the back..one on each side..you might get them off ebay to pretty cheap..and yes..fix it yourself..save you about 60 bucks or more an hour if the dealer does it..it's not hard to replace the bearings..which ever ones you get your hands on..make sure to repack them with new grease before you install them..hope this helps.

Well, I think he decided to sell it or trade it. I saw it on Craigslist. He wants to sell it or trade it for a Yamaha Blaster.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
