I'm tired of dealing with the idiot merchants around these parts, so i'm trying to find parts online.What I'm looking for is a rear axle bearing kit with the seals and everything for my 1999 Yamaha Wolverine.
I've found a bearing here and a seal there ,but no complete kit anywhere(yet).Do you guys know of a good reputable company where I can find this stuff??[?]

I'm not sure, bur my neighbor has the same machine amd he's got the shop manual, so I'll look it up in the next couple days and get back to you.It may have sealed bearings instead of bearings & seals because of the cv shaft assembly.I'll get back to you on that.

try to see if there is a bearings type shop around....i know up here in alaska there is a place in anchorage and all i had to do was call them tell them i was looking for bearings for my Quadrunner and they looked it up on there computer and even had the seals.....so you might want to check that out too.

I don't know of anything like that around these parts, but thanks for the idea.
OK, madd dog, I have the Yamaha Wolverine shop manual here, but unfortunately my girlfriend couldn't get the scanner to install, so I'll have to try to explain what I'm looking at here.From what I see here you have to remove the front wheel, axle nut, pin and washer,& rotor.Of course you have to remove the brake calliper and wire it up out of the way.Don't squeeze the brake while the calliper is off or you'll have a bear of a time spreading it to reassemble.After all that is out of the way you have to get the steering knuckle out.That houses the bearings ,seals and a spacer.If you know someone with a press, it would probobly make removing and replacing alot easier.
I don't know if this is gonna help you or not, but it's the best I can do for now.

I broke down and ordered the stuff I need from a local Yamaha dealer.I couldn't really find anything online that was more than a few cents cheaper.
