PostSubject: CV boot and hub questions?   Wed Sep 21, 2011 5:11 pm

Guys should have some parts for my rzr tom eve and want to start getting it back together. I am replacing a cv boot that has a hole in it and wondering what do you use to tighten the clamps around the boot? Is their a automotive tool you can rent from autozone or something?
2nd I am replacing wheel bearings in the front and rear and 2 hubs, I have read somewhere the torque on the hub bolts is pretty important. Any of you know what the front and rear is supposed to be torqued at?
This is a 2011 rzr S.
Thanks

I think the hub nuts torque at 80lbs..

I've had way too much experience with replacing cv boots. I personally like reusing the stock clamps using a pair of pliers. I've also done it using safety wire using the twisting safety wire pliers-it works good but it feels and looks rigged to me and just do it if I dont have any bands or clamps. Here is a good video of how you do it using the banding tool that you roll like muddy one posted. They are good because you can use generic bands all day long. That tool is also good to use with stainless zip ties, but you have to be carefull with the steel zip ties because some will not tighten up very well. Here is a good vid of someone using that rolling banding tool:

What sucks the most for me is having to take the cv joint off the axle to replace the boot--its messy is all get out. I wished I had one of these!

I can't see the videos here at work so I don't know if it shows what I use or not. The best way I have found to remove the CV from the axle is to use a tool I made. I used a 2" long piece of pipe. I cut a slot in it just large enough to slide over the axle. I welded it to an old air chisel bit that I didn't use any more. I put the axle in a vise, slide the pipe over the axle, pull the trigger and in about one second the CV is laying in the floor.

729242 You caint see the video. I know it sucks because my work place has videos restricted also. But I can tell you for $117.00 , changing cv boots just got a whole lot cleaner and easier and less troublesome. But in the real world, when you tear a boot you are out riding and you caint help to get dirt or water in the cv, so it has to come off anyway to clean it out good. I too made a tool like you but just use a hammer--never thought about fixing it to work with my air chisel- 113872 for the idea.

Actually I wouldn't take it to the dealer either. I'll let them do the warranty stuff but most other items will be taken care of by me. I trust me more than I do dealers.
