    Since I purchased my machine last August I have wanted to buy front and rear spare axles but hadn't gotten to it yet. I couldn't stop thinking about this last night so around 2:00 a.m. I was on MLS web site. Ordered one front complete, one rear complete, and the little stub shaft, spring and bands. Hope I never need them ☺

    Yeah I ordered two rear rhino axles because I hate the push and pull stock axles. Will keep the old one just in case. Will get a cheap axle for front just to use as a spare. Don't want to tie up a few hundred bucks until I need to for the front axles.

    Thank you to everyone who mentioned our plates we appreciate it. I would for sure recommend some kind of retainer plates whether it's the stock ones with lots of red lock tight or upgraded ones. If you can afford Odyknucks plates they are top notch with lots of adjustability if you are someone who wants to be at a very specific torque. Our plates aren't going to win any beauty contests but they get the job done. If you know anyone with a welder get a long 30mm socket and do it yourself, just make sure you grind off the coatings before welding. There's a thread around here somewhere with good tips on how to do it or feel free to PM me and I'll be glad to help. Sorry about your ride ending disaster but I hope you get up and running again soon.

    .^^^^^Thank you DeAnza after my little incident I sent odyknuck a message have not heard back yet. Will probably end up with his at some point. I bought the stock plates for now and plan to take them to a guy that has a welding shop not to far down the road. Whatever he charges me will be much cheaper than what I just forked out to fix this.

    U can try and rebuild thread it if it's not to bad and carry lock tight for that axel as a spare. As for the rest ive never used it on the axle nuts on any machine ive owned. My stock retainers have help up very well for me. Don't feel bad tho my cats down for the count as well!

    Cwade1319 Sorry your Cat is down too...whats with yours? yeah I thought about that too....but I think it may be too torn up. Not sure off hand what the thread count/pitch is. Im going to buy one of the cheap ebay front axles just to use to get me out of the woods should I have a front fail. Will then upgrade when I get it home should that occur. I have rhino's on my rzr and they have held up well. Whats going on the rear of my cat....should be in tomorrow.

    Hollywood's response told me this happens to trails and sports as well. However, I have not seen any active topics about this issue from trail and sport guys. It must be very rare for us. What I find odd is that I don't even have these retaining plates like the full size has. And we go around without them and we aren't losing our wheels, yet you guys are even with these on trying to hold the nut from spinning. That to me does sound like a design flaw that must not be present on the trail or sport. What makes our designs different?

    I don't know how the sport is put together but when I go to WV tomorrow to ride (will be in my wifes RZR) I plan to look my buddies over. Mine (big cat) as I learned this weekend did not have any retainer plates at all.....I thought the ones I had seen were aftermarket. I did not put locktite on the nut either....(that one is on me) I used a cotter pin. Previous owner must have had this happen to my cat at some point because when I put new brakes on after getting it I noticed I had two different sized brake discs.....(clue number 1) clue number 2 was when it happened to me again on the side that had the different disc. So NO MORE fancy hub covers ...should have listened to these guys when they cautioned me about it so I can see whats going on. I will red loctite and carry a darn torch and extra axles. I really love my cat and Im glad I bought one. I knew mine had a few issues but I was able to get it for 2 grand less than he was asking. I am quickly chewing up that margin. But I can not afford to have two machines and them both be new.....so I guess I just wrench when I need to.

    I could be wrong, wouldn't be the first time, LOL! I could have sworn some Trail / Sport cars had a wheel come off. Just check them, proper maintenance goes a long way........

    I remember when several of the guys swore by the roll pin in place of the cotter key. Said thats all it took to keep the nut on.

    cotter key is soft and easily broken. roll pin is hardened steel. The big nut on the lower trailing arm has roll pins installed from the factory. 5/32"

    I had pictures but they didn't post.

    I was trying to remove the 30mm axle nuts last week and could not. The stock pins I had to pull seemed fine. But what I'm hearing is that these are shit? So I replace these with hardened steel roll pins. Where do I buy these and what size would I be looking for?

    You can get roll pins at any auto or farm store. The cotter pin has been holding wheels on vehicles from day one, just don't re-use them.
