Do not take that personally.

I have done alot of research on this and so has others.

You will have to get the snowmobile bearings that work just fine or ceramics($$$) bearings from (Sharkey) V -shop on the forum.


Welcome to the forum.

You can also buy a set of bearings and the axle from the dealer.
They are not that much in cost.
I did mine and just to make it easier, swapped out the axle, bearings and spacers to the year and model that I bought the wheels off of.

You can also call Dave at World Wide Bearing or go thru Sharky at V-Shop, he can make you a set of custom bearings as cheap as getting them from the dealer. I just got a set made for my wheel set up and it was very economical...
