Busted CV Boot
 
I went riding yesterday and found this when pressure washing:

Sorry for the crappy camera phone pic. I hope the dealer can get this replaced pretty quick...

So far it's hpfreak and myself in the warranty squad. :(

That sucks

I will be surprised if they cover it under warranty. We use to tear those things up all of the time trail riding with our Sportsmans. We would tear at least one every trip, so we always had a spare one with us so we could fix it back at camp. They usually rip from twigs or brush that gets up in there and puts a small cut in them that you cannot see and then after awile of riding they bust open. Once you see this I would stop riding ASAP because if you get sand or rocks up in there you will end up spending allot more money.

We'll find out tomorrow. I'll call before heading out if it's covered. I paid for the 5 year warranty...so it should be.

Get a CV boot repair kit from the dealer. It cost me araound 35.00 with my discount. The kit will do 1 inner and 1 outer boot. The outer takes all of 20 minutes and you dont have to pull the axle. The inner will take a little longer. Cheap insurance to carry with you so you dont ruin a weekend of riding.

Update
 
As I mentioned before Honda is covering this 100%. (which they should) So that's $39 (retail) for the boot and 1.3 hours of shop time.

I pick it up tomorrow.

I am now in the busted cv boot warranty club. First ride after the big 3 :( left outside boot split wide.

See post in the competition thread for more on the first ride.

Has anyone tried greasing the outside of the boot. I used to drive (still do, but newer one) a lifted toyota pickup with the torsion bars turned way up causing the CV's to turn at a pretty steep angles. I used to grease the boots because sometimes the friction of the rubber on rubber would tear the boots. I could try it on the 700XX to see if it helps. I hadn't really thought about the CV boots before this thread was posted.

TomKat & Scuzz, Could you tell if these boot failures were due to something hitting them or not?
