Red face rear prop shaft removal

I have a 2000 xpedition 425 that has a bad u joint on the rear prop/drive shaft but I can not figure out how to remove the shaft I removed the roll pin but the shaft does not slide back far enough to remove it from the splined shaft coming out of the engine

Sorry not familiar with that bike. Sounds like trans or rear diff will have to be loosened and slid back. I have had to do that on other machines just not a Polaris.

It's not that bad! Just takes a little time!

When you go back with remember to tighten the bottom bolts first after getting all the bolts started!

Good luck!
