Cracked axle block

Recommended Posts

I finally started working on my new to me 06 EXC and I noticed that the axle block on the left side is cracked at the top. Has anyone else had that happen? There is evidence of a pretty good hit on the chain guide and a couple scratches on the swingarm, but neither seems that it would cause the axle block to crack. Any ideas on cause? Whats everyone's favorite aftermarket axle blocks?

Thanks.

More than likely it cracked from over tightening the axle nut.

I broke one and had to buy a new axle to get the block as it comes as a unit. I wasn't able to find aftermarket parts at the time.

I had an axle block that cracked in multiple places. I had a pair of axle sliders on my bike that covered the axle blocks so I never noticed it. I bought the bike used so I think the previous owner over tightened the axle nut. I went ahead and made my own blocks that are thicker and stronger than the stock ones because I didn't want any more problems.
