Have a 2011 Sportsman 800 EFI. Have 481 mi on it, got it in august. Noticed yesterday both front wheels have play in spindle/axle already.Right side worse then left. This common or not?

Mark,

I have a 09 850, which about at the same mileage, I had to replace both spindle assemblies, bearings, and ball joints. I used OEM parts from Polaris, spindle...they did upgrade to a heavier duty bearing...and I used EPI for the ball joints.

I don't abuse my machine..but due to the weight of the ATV, and the tire size/weight...thus is why I believe you are doing the same.

If you change out the front end...while apart upgrade to some EBC brake pads..been there.

With the changes/upgrades...machine handles so much nicer....Kurt

I found an article on how to rebuild the front differential, it's for an RZR, but same principles should apply.
