I have a 2008 sportsman 500 6x6 with 1000 miles on it. 300 miles have been with tracks and the remaining 700 have been with the 3 inch spacers on the rear and oversized tires on the front. This is the first 6x I have owned. I am wondering what I should do besides the general maintenance and fluid changes.
This last trip I noticed that the rear eccentric seals started going bad (milky grease instead of black like the front). The sprockets are showing a little wear too. I really do not want to wait for a failure in the field before replacing parts. Is it time for me to do the 4 sprockets, 2 chains, and seals. While I am at it should I also do the eccentric bearings and middle axle ball bearings? Are there any other parts that I should replace that typically fail between the 1000 and 1500 mile mark? I don't mind putting some money and time into the rig to avoid a ruined hunting trip. I really appreciate any advice that the long time 6x6 owners may have. Thank you
