Listen ladies, This is not my first bike. I got three atv and a side by side all on mud tires all on stock axles. I guess all you dips sh*ts just own polaris and are used to this crap breaking all the time. This Poo Poo won't roll down the street with mud tires. Didn't know Polaris was a budget bike. But Thanks for input

Thank you bp405 for the Good Positive Info.
I did order the gorilla axles. There on back order for three weeks. Wondering if they make a shaft for my bike and maybe a diff too.
I'm pretty new here, but you need an attitude check IMHO.
There are many very fine folks on here, and so many willing to help. Starting a thread on a Polaris fan site beginning by bitchin and omitting facts that surely contributed to your problems, then calling people names, is out of line. Hope Mods gave you a good warning. I read here to learn, not waste my time while lookng for problems with solutions by reading this kind of crap.
Monster tires for "light muddling"?
Yeah, right.
I've had Suzukis, Hondas, one Yamaha, and this is my second Polaris. There's a reason I came back to my second Polaris and didn't go with any of the others. You take care of them, treat them with common sense, and they will serve you well.
Your scenario is like chopping a Honda, stiff springing it, then whining about what POS Hondas are when you're ripping down a bumpy road and something breaks.
End of lecture.

Hey Guys, I'm a little late to the party here. I thought I would tell you all about my 2011 500 H.O. It's been riding on Delta steel wheels with 28 inch Mudzillas for more than a year. It is equipped with a 2" lift and a QSC clutch kit. The rest is bone stock. Admittedly, I'm the guy who prefers to take the chicken strips around the deep stuff, but when it's an unknown situation I'm leading the pack though. I completely expected to have replaced axles by now. I have done one wheel bearing. My machine doesn't over heat, hasn't left me stranded and has rescued other brands of ATV on the trail. A little restraint goes a long way when you are on the throttle and maintenance is worth every penny you invest.

Enjoy your rides everyone.

^ You didn't do a very good job of bashing Polaris, or the Sportsman line up.
