    Axle came in and I got her all put back together. Bearings are now turning on the axle, amazing how much better it turns! Lol.

    Didn’t get far on the first run due to idle hanging up high after it warmed up. I returned back to the shop and jumped online to this trusty forum and read what to do. Seemed I had the idle set too high after TPS reset, I missed a crucial step on reset and didn’t have the bike warmed up. After adjusting the idle down, all was well.

    I bee lined for my favorite local FS road and hit the trail. Man......these things handle pretty sweet off-road! I was honestly surprised just how good it feels. Fun bike, for sure.

    Love me a happy ending! Glad it's all together man.

    But the inner bearing race should not be spinning on the axle (thats what the rollers in the bearing are for). The axle should capture the inner races together with the spacer to make a solid tube to torque against. The reason your axle got hot is because the inner races were spinning on the axle=bad.

    I get the feeling you know this ^^^, just clarifying if someone mis-reads this later

    Hahaha!! Yep, poor choice of words. Thanks for corrections! I was still reeling with excitement from my little shakedown cruise through the woods, throbbing if you will, Mr Lunatic.

    I feel left out not meeting the mall security guard yet.

    I'm deciding on tires for my "little ully" now, I do go on the roads a lot so it's difficult to decide. The 805/804 Shinko's would be the choice but, they don't make them in our size so, it looks like it will end up being a mix of two different mfgs or model tires.

    I’m 100% street, michilen road pilots 5. Outstanding!! Wear like iron, stick good in the twistes and do well in the rain to boot. A little more expensive BUT a much better tire than the brigestones I cooked off in what felt like hours

    Oh I ride an XT.

    My tire discovery are the Avon Trailriders--I just put 2000 miles on them and they appear barely scuffed. Lots of rain, freeway, gravel and even wet grass. Best yet in my book

    I just put a Road 5 on the rear of my SDGT. I agree, fantastic tire.
