Honda Bend Axle--what to do.

Recommended Posts

I mean "bent" not bend!

hello..i'm really a motorcycle guy but the kids ride quads, so here I am. My son's 06 TRX250 has a bend rear axle (left side, if that matters). Are there places that can fix it or am I stuck with trying to purchase a new one?

haven't measured to see how much it's out yet, but a quick check on it last night looked like about .125"

thanks

Zac

If it only has about 1/8th inch deflection at the end, you could probably straighten it on a hydraulic press. I don't think I would want to catch real big air on a re-straightened axle, but for normal riding you should be fine.

mine is bent too...I plan to use my buddies press to straighten it as well. Have to rig up some sort of jig to hold it

i doubt bending the axle back is going to make it noticeably weaker...we aren't building the space shuttle here. I didn t realize a new axle is only $96 though :bonk:

Yup. They also sell just about any catalog part too.
