Blew a cv boot!! Dam trees!!

I have a 2006 polaris sportsman 800 efi.

After a 4 hour cruise today, i saw grease all over the back axle and found that my inner right rear cv boot has been punctured.

There was still some grease inside the boot. I cleaned the boot off and applied "goop" to seal the puncture. It sticks well to rubber and stays soft.

My question is....is it okay to use the bike for another 4 or 5 hours worth of riding, before attempting to replace the boot?

And...how much of a pain in a the butt is it going to be to place this inner rear boot?

Thanks guys!! Ross

stay out of the water and mud espicially the mud it can get in there and grind around your cv joints and dust and dirt will eventully get in there. try to get it fixed soon as possible you can ride a little but keep it clean as possible. there not to hard to fix pull the tire and ball joints and split the jiont.

i tend to disagree with Chopper on this one which is a first, i always agree with him. The way i look at it is, a 35.00 boot versus a 250.00 axle for another 4 hours of riding. But then again, if the goop holds up and and then you're good. Hopefully you didnt get anything in there.

The boot isn't difficult to replace at all, I had to replace an axle on my 400 h.o. and a boot on my 07 800. If you need a service manual here is a downloaded one cheap. it is a great manual, well organized, it's what i used to to do all my work.

I just had to replace the rear outer couldn't get the cv joint off to slip the boot on, ended up just taking the drive shaft and new boot to the dealer before I broke somthing. The first time I took the whole bike to the dealer it cost me $65can boot included, went to another dealer for the back with just the shaft and I supplied the boot, cost me $45 won't be going there again

there is a snap ring inside the boot that holds the axles together, a little tuff to see, needs to be cleaned well to see it

Thanks for the info guys! And thanks for the link Slyder01... I have the Haynes Workshop Manual...but I grabbed the ebook Service manual as well. Good pics & a cheap price.

I checked the "Goop" temp repair.....and it does seem like its holding well.....so I am taking the wife out for a short ride today...the weather is too nice to just look at the machines.

I will look into the new CV boot tomorrow....and get it replaced...I think leaving the machine in the back of my pickup may turn out to make it easier to tackle this job.

As you get older, you look for ways NOT to lay on the ground anymore!!

it would be a little tuff in the truck since you need to get to the side of the machine. I use one of those seats on wheels that has a tray under it, excelent for jobs like that. The axles sometimes are tuff to get out since they rust in sometimes. The instructions say just to yank on it and it will pop out,,, yea right, didnt have one do that yet. try to get some spray oil in there. I use a 18" or 24" pry bar with an angle on it, pry at one spot, then turn a quarter turn and pry again and keep repeating. Eventually it pops out.

Maybe someone knows an easier way, that's just the way i had success

Hey guys sorry to bother you all but i just noticed i have the same problem. Turning sharp and the axle is clicking and the boot is torn. Since its clicking is it to late to clean it out and replace the boot? or do i have to replace the whole axle? Ive only had this quad a couple weeks so im not to familiar with it yet. Any input is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
