    (If) When I get my WC Sport, are these retainer plates something that should be on a '17 XT already? Or do I need to order them asap?

    The stock retaining plates work to a certain extent. You see what the fallout can be. See my message to phatcat, as to which you might want to purchase.

    Me to izom! Anyone know if the outer cv on the axle can be replaced? Thing is I do not know what brand axle I have.... Its not stock. I would like to see if I can fix this one and keep as a spare.

    So to change an axle in the field I would need a torch for the red loctite on the axle nut.
    So carry a torch or leave off the red loctite and depend on upgraded axle nut retainers.
    Use blue loctite (not rated for the large nut)
    What have you done?

    Wish I could take credit..... Have to take my hat off to my buddy David for that one. Was a team effort and keeping cool heads to keep everyone safe and get the cat out with minimal damage. I'm hanging that Cedar post at my lake house ....my wife will come up with some witty words to put on it.

    Someone above asked about this problem for a WC Sport. I didn't think it was an issue on the Trail and Sport because they were designed the normal way like Polaris does it, or something to that effect. As far as I seen on this forum it's just a 1000cc size problem, and will go away once the XX comes out.

    BTW, is it always the drivers side rear wheel that comes off? Is that because the threads aren't reversed for that side? And I know it's been explained before why this is a problem on the big cat, but not on a Polaris. Can you enlighten me on the mechanics of this design flaw.

    I use plates I welded (similar to De Anza but not as pretty) and no loctite. Just can't imagine the plates letting that 30mm nut move.

    Tell that to Robby Gordon.

    Nope, can happen to any wheel.

    Happens to Polaris too.

    I never had Loctite from the factory. Not sure why. I just impact on with my Dewalt, and have Odyknuck's retaining plates. I never lost a wheel before the plates, but figured it was good insurance.

    No locktite... the welded retainer holds just fine... also I hold the theory that the 250 ft lb torque spec leads to broken stub axles. Soooo, I use about 100 - 125 ft lbs and the retainer.

    I do, in fact, carry a butane torch but that is for the clutch nuts (wet clutch). I tried to invent a retainer for that but it was not a success. The red locktite and big torque seems to be very necessary on these parts. I also carry a clutch holding tool along with 4 foot breaker bar for those big nutz.
