PostSubject: Would these spacers be durable?   Sun Sep 26, 2010 4:30 pm

I was wondering if these spacers would be durable or not. http://www.d2moto.com/p-6779-15-atv-wheel-spacers-4156-bolt-polaris.aspx


Also, I'm planning on getting them for my 2010 Polaris Sportsman 500 they seem like they would fit because the sportsman models don't vary a lot on different bolt patterns and stuff. Just wanting another opinon on durability and if they would fit or not.

I don't know. I would go with aluminum if it was me...I got some Nice Aluminum one from Mud Tech. On the index page on the left is a link to their site...they are cheapest place by far for spacers.

Hey never mind I fount the site I think I'll buy them from here because I know Aluminum is very good for spacers and HL sells the same ones for $140 total and MudTech sells them for about $100 total Also I already ordered a MuchTech t-shirt haha

Hey, if you put spacers on be sure to get them on nice and tight( a little blue locktite wouldn't hurt).

Reason why is i went riding last sunday with my friend Josh( speedy1) and he had spacers on his 700 polaris. I was riding on a trail in front and next thing i hear a clunk, and see in the corner of my eye a black shadow rolling towards me. Turns out he bought the aluminum spacers from HL, and either they vibrated loose( cause he told me he tightened them down) or it was a mfg defect.

Aluminum has an unusual creep property and will loosen because of this creep.

There is a trick to torquing new aluminum to where it will hold properly. ATV lugs should normally be torqued to 35-40 ft-lbs. On new aluminum, torque to 60-65, release it, retorque to 60-65, release it, then torque to 35-40 ft-lbs. This process removes the creep property below 60 ft-lbs in the zone under the lug nut.

the link didnt take me to where i could see them, i owned a repair shop for many years and am a certified atv and motorcycle technician with years of experience.

here's what i have learned on spacers. the black plastic spacers are pretty prone to breaking. the guys here are right aluminum is alot better.

the ultimate is extended axles, but if that's not an option go aluminum.. you thank yourself later.
