Smile 2005 500 ATV Rear Axle

Hi, I replaced my left rear axle about a year ago. Since then, I have lost my wheel about 5 times...the cotter pin shears and the castle nut spins off...any suggestions?? Thanks, Bob

Loc-tite and an impact. Those castle nuts are torqued from the factory. Mine kept coming off after a wheel bearing replacement and I just got it snug like you would on a trailer bearing, no go. Had to put it on like I took it off, with an impact.

No problem buddy...I suggest you dont use the loctite gel ive had bad luck with it, didnt seem to cure. Some guys use red loctite but i dont like to as its hard as crap to remove ive had great luck with standard blue stuff
