your atv has a SRA ?, if so, the left rear wheel needs to come off, remove the axle tube from the differential ( 4 nuts/bolts ) slide the tube off, be careful not to forget to loose or install the large flange washer that rides on the outer axle near the splines, once the tube is off, remove the seal ( you will destroy it unless you have a seal puller ? ), just under the seal is your bearing/bearings, hammer them out from the other end of tube, install new bearing/bearings, slide shim washer/nut on axle, slide tube back on axle, bolt up, wheel on, all done.

that is not a SRA, I did not think the trx420's had them.

do you know how to remove it from this one?
you really need a service manual, but I just looked your model up, and from what I see, the only bearings you have back there are all in the differential, sooo..a complete rear differential tear down is in order, you should replace all carrier bearings and oil seals while your repairing it.

is it possible the axle is loose when i rock it side to side it moves in and out
I highly doubt it, what is loose, is the bearings !, once they go ?, then the rest of the rear end follows right behind it !. sooooooooo..tear it down, replace what is bad ( my money says your carrier bearings are going out ), and be done with it. bottom line : you need to replace all differential bearings and oil seals...ALL OF THEM !. and while your at it ?, check/inspect/replace the swing arm bearings, and rear brake bearing and seals :).

Yep. 420 SRA rear end is just like the 300 rear end.

Look at D-ray's 300 rear end rebuild on Youtube and it will show you what you need to do.


Like shade said, replace ALL the bearings and seals.
