700xx Axle Is SLIPPING!!

Went out in the snow today and when I am in the deep snow the rear of the bike seemed to be jumping. Put a knee on the seat and noticed that the left axle was slipping. Its not slipping a lot and doesn't slip when I gun it on the road only in the snow. After I put it on the jack and noticed that there is some play where the axle meets the middle hub assembly (chain side). Is this a common problem or is my hub stripped?

That is extremely odd, it is still a solid axle in the way of power distro. Does the axle turn when it slipps or just the wheel? As painful as it sounds pull out the axle and see if the splines are stripped on the axle or the hubs. you might be able to get away with just seperating the top A arm. good luck

So after looking closer its the right axle. It is moving like crazy and i can't get it out. Any Ideas on how to get that out? The manual says to just put a flat screw driver and pry but that aint working.

If it is moving like crazy. the problem may be that the splines aren't lining up right to slide out. Look closely see if they are lined up before you pull there may be an E clip of some sort there. It may even require rear end disassembly to get a better look at it.

Well after I took the whole rear assembly off found that the rear set ring had broke and found its way into the hub assembly allowing the axle end to move in and out wearing the grooves down to the point where the hub and the axle is shot. Cost me about $400 to fix and still waiting on the axle end that is on backorder. Word of advice keep those grooves greased well. Save ya $400

Just wondering how you grease this? Do you break rear end loose and remove axles? I was looking at quad the other day and wondering if you could just remove the CV boot clamp, apply grease and then replace clamp with a regular hose type clamp, so you could remove easy next time. Looks like clearance shouldn't be a issue on the smaller end of the boot, for a hose clamp. Also just so I'm clear you guys are having trouble with the inside axle ends right?

yes its the splines that need to be greased frequently and yeah if your a racer youd proll do that every other race but us trail riders hardly ever do it thats how i found out, the c/v bearings or c/v joint is not the problem the prob is where the axle slips in to the main carrier the right side gets hotter than the left prolly cause the brake rotor and exhaust same with right rear shock it fades quick cause so close to ex cannister
