So I bought my '07 Grizz700 from my wife's cousin. He'd torn a boot on the right rear axle. He had the dealership clean it up, grease and reassemble. Then he hears the clicking sound. They told him it should be fine so long as the sound doesn't get worse or the joint bind up.

Is this clicking noise a serious concern, something that will become a concern later on, or I should be fine to keep running it as is? I just don't want to get stuck up on the mountain with a busted axle and a long walk.

I tore my left rear outter cv boot. It was clicking. I repaired the joint for about 100. No more clicking. It wasnt hard to do, did it myself. I got the parts from the CV Man. Balls, race, cage, grease, boot and clips comes in a kit. Pm me if you have questions about doing it.

I *think* the dealership already did that. He said that they cleaned it, greased it and put it back together with a new boot. So you're saying I should repeat that but replace the parts in there?
Did you happen to take pictures of the work? I'm a mechanical novice (far from pro but not exactly amateur) but pictures work really well for me.
CV Man... link? $100 sounds a lot better than the dealer wanting almost 250 to replace the axle.
ETA: googled CV Man and I reckon I found the link.
Will755... whatever instruction or pointer you can shoot my way would be Great!

Great info! Great pictures too. My buddy reminded me to try the warranty first. Hopefully they'll fix the New one... yep, New one. The left rear tore this weekend and immediately started clicking louder than the other side.
Time for guards.

well my boot broke so I replaced it. I then noticed this clicking, so I tore it all down and installed new balls, cage etc. It still clicks. I'm not happy. especially after spending 110 bucks. 38 bucks before that for the boot kit and then find out the boot comes in the 100 dollar kit. I think the green cup that goes into the diff is worn? Any ideas? Thanks Todd.

Does is click when driving straight or just when you turn the wheels hard?I'm no expert on them only having replaced one rear outboard halfshaft on the 660 but from what I could see on mine the clicking was the balls jumping across their grooves or tracks. I could see where they wore metal jumping across is why I put on a new halfshaft or cup with all the guts and boot. American cv sells a halfshaft right now for $76.

STI axle heavy duty is 150 so save the headache and get one... Rhinos are junk so stay away from them.

I had the same problem on a Polaris sportsman that I once owned. I took it back to the dealership twice and both times they greased it and it was good for a few weeks, then it would start up again. It was still clicking three years later when I sold it.

I installed new balls, cage, boot and grease. The green cup is the only old part, other than the shaft. I'm thinking about getting a new half shaft. Im just pissed after spending so much money to fix it.
