Dang repacking cv ? Where they leaking? I don't think that's something you have to do unless you have a hole in one

I see. I have noticed that it's hard to get the cv clean and dry and the boot tight as the factory does

yeah, they use some heavy duty bands too. It takes alot of rags, rubber gloves and a little finesse to make sure grease is not in the grooves under the boots.

I try to change my cv grease every season too, it's not one of those things I wanted coming apart on me. Although I'm not putting sweepco $$ I've been using redline cv2 I think....

do you just check the width on a belt? got any specs?
I just throw a new one on. Checking width doesn't help too much if you've already built up a lot of heat in the belt once before. Just be safe and throw another on. If you have a skid they are a bitch to change on the trail/dunes

Around Jan or Feb I'll replace all bushings, ball joints, radial joints and wheel bearings .. I'm real big on preventative maintenance and I like to know the fact my machine is right for next season .. I hate making repairs on the trail or unexpected break downs
