Default RTV900XT Front Propeller Shaft CV Joint

Hello All.

Tried to search this subject, but search option wouldn't allow time to enter subject.

So, I'm hear a new noise while traveling. Crawled under while NOT traveling and shook the from prop. shaft near the front cv joint. Seems loose to me.

Who's performed repairs to the prop. shaft. The big K only sells the complete assembly at $590 or a boot assembly at $80. Complete gravel road robbery!

Haven't found any non-OEM mtg that have these parts.

My desire is to only replace CV joint (s). Any ideas?

Thank Border Collie! Amazing that axles are readily available, but not the front drive shaft (propeller shaft).

Could you describe that noise for me, please? Do you hear it all of the time -- or just at very slow speeds like when you're coming to a stop? When you **DO** hear that noise, is it constant -- or intermittent, like a shaft coming around to rub on something, then rotating away from contact, then rubbing again?

Thanks for your help!

Intermittent flopping and squealing noise. Inspected today and both CV joints are sloppy allowing the shaft to rub the perforated shield beneath it.

Sorry for the delayed response.
