2012 CFMoto CF800 X8 has play in the rear axle
« on: February 06, 2017, 08:34:31 PM »
I just bought this and was going over it today and noticed that if you rocked the ATV back and forth a little there was some play or movement in the holder unit for the rear wheel shaft, I believe that is what it is called, The wheel shaft holder would move or had play in it where the 2 bolts go through it, Is this normal?

There should be no movement between the case of the gearcase and the mounting points. Check the bolts. Also look for ant cracks in any mounting tabs.

Here is a picture of what I think it is but I will try to get a picture tomorrow of mine, I think it is part #19, It moves a little on the bolts when you rock it,

That's called the knuckle and no, it should only move on the bushings so check the bolts for correct torque but its more likely the bushings are warn. An easy fix though.

There should be no play in there or very very minimal.
I have see them with slop if there is no grease in there, I'd open it up and have a peek. I've even seen brand new with a wrong steel bushing. The only thing that really soaks up the ay is grease.besides cranking down on the bolts. Though I've seen play in there after that also.
If it has Pistons or Tits you will encounter problems.

Here is a picture I took so I can try to make sure were talking about the same thing, As you can see in the picture there is and axle with a black rubber boot that goes into a black frame bracket, On the bottom you can see a bolt head it looks like it's light green, When you rock the ATV just a little you can see the black bracket slide back and forth a little on the bottom on that bolt, Is this normal or does it need something? Thanks everyone as I'm new to this.

If the bolt is tight it just means the ends of the bushing a warn a little. Nothing to worry about.

Thanks a lot, That makes me feel a lot better knowing it doesn't need any major work done.
