Welcome to the forum
Thank you, I receive the manual. Is there possibly a specific manual for the 98 Sportsman or just the "all models" version? I'm looking for information on the rear hub rotor assembly and can't find anything about it in the manual you sent over. I did search the forum and found one post about it (polarisatvforums.com/threads/rear-rotor-removal.38449/#post-1543011) but the solution wasn't posted in the forum :-(Sent
Hi. Yes, I got the hub removed, but was trying to figure out how the rotor was supposed to be replaced. I saw it was riveted to the hub. I ordered a new rotor, but it comes separate from the hub. Wasn't sure if swapping the rivets to bolts was acceptable or not
Thank you very much for the very detailed response. I'll shoot for the bolt option if possible, otherwise, I'll contact my local machine shop. Thanks again for all the help today!!OK, now I understand, you have a part that was not sold by Polaris and you are forced to because the part is not available from Pol. The procedure you are looking for is not in the manual, because it's not a normal repair operation. You are repairing at the origin level, not the consumer level.
In most cases the aftermarket suppliers include the components and instructions to assemble the part. Since they did not, you will need to remove the old rivets - best method it to disc grind off the rivet flush on the disk side and knock the old disk off the rivets - you can then measure the rivets and either get replacement rivets or proper sized bolts - if you opt for bolts be sure to check the clearance between the bolt heads and the transmission case and the caliper. If clearance is not an issue, get some grade 8 or 10 fine thread bolts and torque with red Loctite on the threads - if clearance is an issue, just take the parts to a machine or blacksmith shop and let the machinist or smithy remove and install the parts - the last thing you want to do is use an improper technique and damage the hub. A machinist or blacksmith can remove and install the parts with a very small chance of damaging the part.
