Why are both my front hubs busted up?
So i have a '13 sportsman 500 and took the hubs off the other day to clean grass from behind them. I noticed my front left hub was sheared off at the part that slides into the bearing. I put it back together and went for a ride anyways while I waited for new bearings and hub to get here since I figured it had prob been like that for several rides anyways. Went today to take both struts off to get new bearings pressed in and noticed the other side did the same thing during the ride I just took!! I ride flat easy trails with moderate mud, 28 inch tires but always ride in low and have a qsc clutch kit. The bearings were about due for replacement but didn't make any noise or have THAT much play in them. What would cause the hubs to shear like that? I know there were torqued down properly too.
