You don't need to take the axle nut off. Lift the rear of the quad with whatever means you have. Remove the wheel, upper and lower outer control arm bolt. Take something and tie the upper control arm up out of your way while working.

Hold the axle shaft with a pair of vice grips (I always wrap the shaft with a piece of leather so I don't score the shaft). While holding inward pressure on the shaft hit the outer joint outward a with either a brass hammer or dead blow. It should pop off the hub will come off with it as an assembly. All that is holding it is a snap ring. Clean everything, install the boot add grease and reassemble. The cv should go back on with a moderate hit to the end of the axle, once again I use a brass hammer.

I tore a boot on my first ride and had to do this in camp. Luckly I brought along some boots that fit my other quad not the right ones but got them to work so I could ride the rest of the weekend.

Not really some time that little snap ring can be a real PITA. Did your boot kit come with a new snap ring?
Try putting the joint on without the ring first to make sure you haven't burred the splines. If you have you need to take a small file and clean up the burr's they will be on the axle not the joint(joint is much harder). It should slide easily without the snap ring. If all is good with that try bending the snap ring a little, not too much or it won't hold.

Rather than bending the snap ring can't you grease it well? I've had good luck doing that with other machines.

That just sucks. I thought stuff like that only happened to me.

Unless you get lucky my guess is that will be something the dealer will have to order in. Somewhere in this forum there is a thread about favorite Honda parts suppliers.
