When we were out in the Black Hills my cousin either caught a stump or a rock which put a small bend in his drive shaft on his 01 mtncat 500 136. The dealer is checking on a drive shaft out of salvage but not looking to promising so far. A new one with the drive sprockets on it already is $150 and without is about $60. How hard is it to use the old sprockets and has anyone done it before. Wondering if its worth saving the extra $90 by saving the old ones they don't seem to be cracked or anything. I have access to a good press and such. Thanks for any help.

I just replaced the driveshaft on my zl 440 because it snaped right inside the chaincase. It is really easy to press off the sprokets it took me abot 10 minutes to do, but just make sure you know what the dimensions are from where they came off, so you know where to put them back on. It is even easier to put them on a new shaft, i just pushed one of mine on then after that i tried to pull it off and it wouldnt move so it was good to go. its not worth spending 150 in the shop for them to do something that will take oyu 10 mins to put on if you have a press. Good Luck! SWRules
