Hey guys
The right inner cv joint has a lot of sloop to it so I tryed to get it out to see if the cv joint it self is worn or the hub or both. but the probelm is that I can't get it to come out and I don't want to break something. So my question is this ... should I just let it alone and hope for the best or go deeper and take it all apart to get the cv joint out?

Thanks for all the help so far

I've never had it apart, but its also something I wouldn't want to come apart around 60mph

looks like you have not lubed the chain since new... as far as getting the axle out spray it where it goes into the hub with "pb blaster" or equivilant all the way around. then you should be able to pull it back once or twice then turn 1/4 turn and pull on it agiain. keep doing so untill it pops out. just be careful because you can pull the guts out of the cv joint.(not a big deal, just have to slide it back together as long as you dont tare the boot.)
Does this make any since?

We just got the bike last weekend and your right there wasn't any grease on the chain.
thye didn't really take care of the bike much.I have tryed loads of lub on the joint but I'll try more in the morning and try again.if that doesn't work then I'll be putting it back together and waiting on it staying/breaking. I think that the lock ring is stuck and not letting it pop out

i had the same problem with my dad rzr when i upgraded his axles. One of the fronts would not come out!!! just get the axle out of the hub so you can pull on it then give it a few "pulls" or "pops" like you are trying to get it out. Not too hard. then turn it about 1/4 a turn and pop it again a couple of times. this along with the pb blaster will jar the snap ring inside the carrier loose and it should come right out. It does not take alot of force for it to come loose, its the turning/poping motion that will free it up!

Anybody ever try a slide hammer. I haven't had the need for removal but they can put a lot of force on a small area.
