CV axles are used to drive every model UTV and independently suspended ATV on the market. Whether replacing a torn CV boot, a broken axle, or even upgrading to stronger or longer axles for an aftermarket suspension, as an ATV enthusiast, you are bound to be tearing into one at one time or another. While it looks a bit scary, there really is little mystery to axle repair, and the same basic process can be used on almost any model CV axle.
We will show you how to rebuild a broken RZR XP axle with OEM Polaris parts, but you can use these same steps for CV boot replacement with a boot kit from Moose Racing or All Balls. MTA also has a new, reasonably priced line of Slasher CV axles and boots.
