A description of the parts that need to be checked and/or replaced when you change your ATV CV joint; and how to do it right for the most cost-effectiveness.

We've all been there. You know that dreaded clicking and popping sound during a turn or while under load that causes you to realize that your ATV CV joints are done for. They need to be replaced but make sure you also check your CV boots for looseness, cracks or tears.

Here are some things you need to remember when you change your ATV CV joint:

Check for loose, torn or cracked boots
Check to see how much grease is left
Having grease does not guarantee that it hasn't been contaminated by dirt or water
Check bearings for: scoring, noise or rough operation
Replace bearings if they show signs of wear, damage or rust
Always replace boots and hardware when you change your ATV CV joint
Check your axles for wear at this time

This will ensure that you only have to do the job once. It may cost more up front but it will save you time, money and hassle in the long run. Always use a high-quality new replacement CV joint and heavy-duty replacement boot. This will insure that you will have many more miles of trouble-free riding.

ATV CV Joint Boot
What to Do When Your ATV's CV Joints Fail
By Jonathan Wickham
Damaged CV boots are a pretty good indication that dirt or water has mixed in with your grease - if it hasn't all leaked out. Torn outer ATV CV joints can also be hard on your wheel bearings because dirt or water probably has leaked in or grease has leaked out and the bearings have been run dry.
