I have a 1999 500 manual AC bear cat ATV ,,, can I use any parts from a 2001 300 automatic AC ATV rear axle assembly ? They have the same style semi independent rear axle/diff design.

For one thing that is not a 300 rear axle. The 300's are independent suspension with engine/rear diff as one unit. FWIW your axle halfs are the same 1998-2000 400, 454, and 500 models. As an assembly it's a matter of whether suspension arms line up and whether pinion bolts to rear drive at motor.

So what do you think this bike is ? 70179809_3206477266030790_2405070759639646208_n.jpg

Looks to be no newer than a 2001 400 or 500 or up to a 98 454.

Ok well the guy selling that red A.C. atv for parts possibly doesn't know what he has . It seems like you know what your talking about. Thx 660catman . He lives about 500 miles south of me and I want to be sure that the bike he has will fit mine before shipping happens. $100 + shipping for the entire rear axle/diff assembly is a pretty good price.

driveshaft on diff is the same 96-2000 models so that will fit. Arms are 96-2001 models so those will fit too. What is the matter with your axle assembly?

Axle splines and gears that they slide into are stripped also. Fixed it a few times with some luck, finaly stripped again so I welded everything. Axle snapped a couple times, rewelded but its on last leg. Need new parts $1000 or a new bike . Lol
