Ok so I have this thing tore out of the machine now. Everything is rusty and I had to drill out a set screw but so far so no problem. Now i can't figure out how to get this wheel off.

I dont know about using a puller because I think it will break. Neither side is just going to slide off. Any suggestion is appreciated.

It definitely needs bearings, there are some wheels that barely turn. I also need to replace some hardware, I couldn't get the tensioner bolts to turn at all I had to remove the back wheels and drive the shaft out.

So - do the wheels and bearings come as a unit or are they separate? I think I should replace a couple of them because they look beat.

Bearings can be replaced without a problem. Should have been a snap ring on it holding it in somehow, sometimes they are on both sides but not always. If not then you will need to use a puller to pry it off which does happen. Usually there is 2 sizes of bearings on a rear suspension. And they are very common bearings to the point you can buy them in 10 packs on Amazon for around 20-25 bucks a 10 pack. Heck on a Polaris same bearing that goes on bogie wheel in the rear suspension is the same one that goes in the chaincase.

Remove the snap ring on the inner side and remove the bogie.
The with 3 jaw puller remove the bearing.
Make sure it goes back on that way!

Thankfully last time I did a whole suspension like that once the snap rings were removed the bogie wheel & bearing came out together. Just had to then use a socket and a hammer to get the old one out then put the new one it along with a snap ring and was done.

You just saved me a lot of time, I was getting ready to weld up a tool to reach around the wheel and pull the whole thing off. Did not see the clip behind it.
