I have a 2004 400 automatic with FIS I am replacing the wheel bearings. Does anyone have ant suggestion on what to use? Or is OEM the best. I want to stay away from the China junk and ALL Balls. Thanks

2004 400

That is what my 07 650 takes but the part number for my 04 is differnt according to Arctic Cat. 0402-275 is what they call for on the 2004.

only difference i see is its a 3 piece bearing and seals...the new ones are just one piece....other then that the a-arms and hub and ball joints all look the same i cant see the bearing size being different at all

According to my cat dealer my 400 takes 55x30x30 bearings. The newer bearings( like on my 650h1) are 55x30x32. This leaves no room for my seals.Looks like I have to go with the OEM bearing I guess.

Pivot works have been serving me decently, I had a pivot works in my front left that was put in 8+yrs ago, sat and allowed to dry out and gross up for 5 yrs, then i started riding it again through creeks, mud, skeg, etc, took probably 300km after that for the bearing to be shot, the brand new on in my back is going strong... i dont see any issue with them
