Mr. jccapri, do you make your own bushings out of the nylatron or are you affiliated with boss bearing. They selling nylatron bushings too??? Also are there differences between the 09 xp's and the newer xp's bushings or is just different numbers needed???

Bushing are bushed out

I have roughly 4200 miles on my 09 850xp. I ordered the all ball front bushings, tie rod ends, and ball joints. Mine stock units have been crap since around the 500 mile mark just had to many other problems to deal with the bushings and ball joints. The tie rod ends look fine and have normal wear, but I figured I would replace them too.

My rear bushings look good and feel good; think I will wait to replace them.

My 850XP is a mechanics dream. I have gone through 5-starters, 6+ belts, two front CV joints, two front wheel bearings, and a ton of other little things. My bike is pretty much stock except for 29" tires, HMF slip-on exhaust, 1.5 inch shock lift. It has been a pain in the azz for repair issues.

I just finished rebuilding my starter. Pulled it apart and it was wet and rusty. Cleaned everything, lots of material left on contacts. re greased and put back together. Siloconed the joints and bolts to make "waterproof" again. Works like new again. Well your 6 belts is from not having a gear reduction kit. I've been on 30's for a long time with no blown belt. The rest sounds like mine too. lol

So which changes did they make, are the newer ones bigger or smaller, what changed on them? Or are they all the same size, but different material?
Thanks

All are same size and 09/11/12/13 all have same part # the 10s have a diff. Part # same size they tried a different material that did not work as good as the old material witch does not seem to work. Some say theres last but if you look at them the design was followed they are designed to ride on a bed of greese about 1/16" thick but greese doesn't support weight. If you remove them and clean the dirt and sand out then they become very loose the only part that is tight on a new stock bushing is a 50 thousandths thick lip on the end and that is were the play comes in and if you keep greese in them you by hand can not or its hard to move them but a 800 to 1000 bike moving it's easy. Sorry for the long rear

I have an HPI big wheel clutch kit installed, including the Helix for the secondary clutch. I installed the complete clutch kit right after I blew the first belt, around the first 500 miles. It just tuned 4600 miles today and I have been running the current HPI extreme belt for the last 600-800 miles. Gotten far better usage from the HPI belt or maybe I have been more gentle with the bike over the last 800 miles..

jccapri, how good are your bushings, are they lasting longer then the OEM bushings? If so, what do you charge for a complete front end replacement on a 2009 Polaris 850XP? My current bushings have LOTS and LOTS of slack in them. The bushings have never been replaced and the bike has 4600+ miles on it.

Thanks in advance for any and all help.
