Note: These instructions are very general, and you should have a service manual for your particular vehicle to get a better understanding of your particular setup and have factory recommended torque levels and specifications on hand.
Check out the Additional Service Information Resources for more information on finding service information for your specific vehicle.
Thoroughly clean the vehicle to make the job easier and prevent contamination of the new components during installation.
Get your ATV wheel bearing kit from ALL BALLS RACING.
Remove the contents of your ALL BALLS RACING carrier kit. Layout the components in an organized manner for easy installation. Place the new bearings in the freezer for about an hour before installing them.
Support the vehicle with a suitable stand or jack.
Remove the steering knuckle from the vehicle.
Remove the dust seals with a seal pick or flat blade screwdriver.
Remove the snap ring with snap ring pliers.
Press the bearing out of the knuckle. Make sure the bearing has room to exit the knuckle.
Clean away all of the old grease, grime, and rust from the bearing bores.
Inspect the bearing bores for wear and damage. Make sure the bores are free of damage or burrs that may cause the new bearings to hang during installation.
Heat the bearing area of the knuckle with a heat gun, take one of the bearings out of the freezer and install it into the bore.
Press the bearing into place with a bearing installer tool or a socket that matches up with the outer race of the bearing.
Only press on the outer race of the bearing. Make sure the bearing is fully seated. The snap ring groove should be visible.
Install the new snap ring into the groove with snap ring pliers.
Apply grease to the lips of the dust deals.
Press in the seals by hand or use a suitable driver that matches up with the outside diameter as the dust seal if needed.
Install the knuckle and assemble the vehicle.
To make your bearings last longer- avoid pressure washing around the bearing seals for extended periods of time. Pressure washers will push water right around seals causing premature rusting of the bearings.
