I hear alot of guys having trouble with the xlt pto crank bearings. Where is the best place to buy new ones. Ive looked and seems the cheapest i can find are 90 shipped. Seems a little high to me considering that doesnt include the case seals
The problems they encounter are the result of inadequate oiling on the 597cc motors (the 580cc motors didn't have the issue). And, it's on the earlier versions. I believe the issue was corrected in either '96 or '97 with the addition of a fourth oil line to the case.
As far as buying the bearings - there are a lot of places that you should be able to get the OEM bearings from. Look up the parts on a parts fiche, get the Polaris part number, then do a Google search for "Polaris <part number>" to find places that sell them.
