Ok, I'm a little freaked out now. This is the 5th one way bearing I have heard of failing. My brand new rage 3s one way bear came apart in less than 3 miles on it. I'm waiting to get the primary back now but what if it's just happens again. I have pics but honestly STM has been so good with this I don't want to put any damaging info or photos out there. When it happened I called them up n they immediately gave my a ups number n said they will have it out the same day it comes in. Has anyone else had there one way bearing seiz or come apart? Is it something in the install? Idk but around the shop it did great than took it out n didn't get 2mile b4 it happened. Like I said though they have been great n really cool, but that doesn't help me if it happens again cause I play in the mud/water Everytime this happens I have to unseal the housing, scrap for a hour then reseal tight when done. I'm just lil worried that's all

I didn't actually get any water or mud in the housing just saying I have to seal it Everytime I go in here so it's ALot of work:crying:
But same thing it was hard to shift but they said new belt will do that then it wouldn't stop finally when I stopped it it stalled. Then anytime I put it in gear it would stall that's when they told me to trailer the bike, get it home n take it apart. I did to find the bearing in pieces in the primary. Wonder if a two way bearing would be better for me? I'm not a clutch guy as u see. I'm all chassis n suspension :disappointed:

Matt from STM called me yesterday and all I can say is I'm happy I went with STM he talked to me for a while offered to overnight the primary back to me n explained everything. Now my buddy went to our local UTV shop not dealer, accessory shop n had "clutches"put on
He couldn't even tell me what kind they were(more $than sense) anyways they had his maverick a month we went n picked it up took it to his house where in the back yard is a hill so we climbed it like we always do n Bang,Splat,Bow, then RIP within 100 ft it tore the belt up. I don't know how. So he took his maverick back. The owner of that said bike shop called me a hour ago because he heard when I had my bearing issue I called Matt at STM an got a hold of him immediately and he can't get my buddies Mav to stop eating belts. He said he can't get a return call from QSC for a week. You know I am in NOWAY bashing QSC they have to be busy as hell n who knows said owner might have pissed someone at QSC off. But even with the little issue I love the fact I can pick up the phone n talk to an expert in two min.
