View Full Version : Have any of you guys seen this problem before ... TRX250X

:evil: ..... well I'm checking out the 250X today and I notice the darn axle shifts from side to side - theres absolutely no up and down (bad bearing) play in it, it just moves about 1/2" left and right. The guy before me put new rear bearings on it about two years ago but theres no miles on them. The axle lock nuts appear to be seated properly and the snap retaining ring is mounted in the groove. I will eventually pull it all apart (yuk no fun) but I can't tell if its a lock nut problem or a bearing carrier problem. Anybody have any ideas before I start.

check your lock nut. It sounds more like that is the problem.
