2002 Sportsman 500 Drive shaft removal u-joint

I really appreciate this forum. There is some great information on it.
I have a 2002 Sportsman 500 with the independant suspension rear end and need to replace the u joint on the main shaft. What is the easiest way to remove the drive shaft and do you know the NAPA part number for a new one with a grease insert.

Thanks in advance..

I have a 2001 so I think our bikes are similar.

You have to drive out the large roll pin from the front u-joint , then the shaft should slide off the rear spline.
You can check prices at cyclepartswarehouse dot com for OEM polaris parts.

For some reason I didn't have to do that when I removed my shaft assembly?
