Not sure what year Quad you have but..... From 1999-2006 they are the same. Older than 1999 I'm not sure. Best of luck

Thanks again for your help...i have recently bought new axle,lock nut,bearing carrier, front and back sprockets,chain, case saver and back brake rotar..putting new parts all back together and notice the old hub in discussing was worn and had flat spots all around where housing sits..also had small layer of metal peeling off outside lip of hub where bearing housing sits

Yep... I've done plenty of bearing changes and bearing housing, on the rear axles of the 300's... Not a lot of fun lol... I tip is TAKE YOUR TIME it may sound stupid but if you rush through it and try to get it done fast you can forget to put something on and then have to back track...Thats what I've learned from doing them. If you need any help don't hesitate to ask. I'm really good with sport quads!!

They are on both ends of the bearing carrier. But 99.9% of the time they arent there. The point of them is to keep the mud out of it. I always just coat the outside of the whole carrier in never seize. Never had an issue adjusting the chain on any that i have owned or done. My .02

I was just about to say, they are only there to keep the dust and mud out. I agree with Slammed Ranger.

Appreciate it fellows..now that i know where they go and what there for,think I may need to go with installing them since we do a lot of dirt road and hunting club riding which has a pretty good bit of mud involed at times
