Does anyone know where to order 2017 axles I can't find anywhere, also does anyone know if front and rears are the same? TIA

There was a thread on here a couple weeks ago where a guy tried 2015 axles....and they fit perfectly. Same axle apparently.

If you're looking for HD aftermarket axles I recommend Cobra axles. I've broke 2 stock axles, 2 8 ball axles, and my buddy and I are running cobras on our quads and his sxs. Haven't broke any of them yet. Def worth the money.

How are you breaking them? Heavier tires I'm guessing?

Cobra dosent list them on website
Ya I just looked on their website. You could give them a call. They're good guys to work with. The 2016's are listed, but I'm not sure if the axle lengths between the 2016's and 2017's are different. If not, then maybe they'll work?

From Yamahas parts break down the shafts are same part #s and joints are same part#s between 2016-2018 so must be the same. I was looking at getting the cobra oem style axle for $119. I have 27 inch tires what do you all think and has anyone run these . Any help would be appreciated.

I've only ran their HD axles. I have nothing but good things to say about cobra though. So if you're looking to save money by running the OEM style axle from cobra, I'd say it'd be a safe bet. What kind of 27's are you running ( 8ply mud tires? Trail tires?) And what kind of riding do you mostly do? I only ask because if you're riding in situations to where you're prone to break axles or running a heavy 8ply paddle tire, like me, I would look at going with the cobra HD's. They're twice as expensive but you'll probably never break one either. That's if cobra makes an HD for the newer Grizz yet. They should be if they're not already. Worth calling them if you don't see what you're looking for.

Just throwing this out there.

A couple weeks ago there was a thread on here of someone asking about 2016 axles. He took a chance and purchased a set of 2015 axles, and they were a direct bolt on. They fit perfect.

They are 6ply tire and have decent 1 inch tread lugs but not full on mud tire.l ride a lot of different trails that include a lot of mud ,rocks, hill climbs,wooded trails. I didn?t snap axle I went to ride quad this weekend an heard popping coming from left rear checked it out and found boot with two small holes in it and some grease thrown around. So I was going to replace axle instead of rebuilding the outer joint. Yamaha wants like $180 just for outer joint.

Ya Yamaha is pretty proud of those.
Try checking with the Axles Dezz pointed out. Those sound like they would be your best bet with your type of riding.

I have a 2016 Grizzly 700 EPS. I had a clicking coming from the rear axle. Took the axle apart and found the outer CV joint was binding up. Tried cleaning it out in the parts washer and still no good. I ended up ordering a 2015 aftermarket rear axle which fits quite well ($220 CDN). OEM wanted $260 for the lower CV joint !!! I have rode the machine a few times and it's all good. I attached some pictures as well. Thanks.

Has anyone had problems installing these cobra hd axles? I bought one for my 2016 grizzly and when I went to install it the upper control arm tab is not giving me enough clearance to slide it into the diff straight.
