I had to pull the hub apart on my sportsman, when I went to reassemble I found this circle spring, it is not the one that goes around the clutch it is bigger and I cant figure out where it goes? I checked a few online parts fiche and dont see it listed, nor do I see it talked about in any of the how to threads. It looks just like the one on the clutch only bigger. Thanks.

Number 11 is the one that goes on the clutch, that one is on there. This one is bigger but fell out of that same area?

I see what you mean.....I just looked at some other fiches and don't see it either. :gruebel: A mystery spring.

I have been doing some more digging online, and apparently the hub seal has a spring in it, I am thinking it came from there. It doesnt look like I can get the seal out and replace the spring without damaging the seal.

I think you're right about the spring going inside the hub seal. I think you may have to change the seal like you say.....

It is the spring from the seal. I went through the same thing a few years ago. My experience is that its worth replacing them.
