Hey guys I’m having some concerns about the amount of play on the inner sprocket bushing. Looking for some advise as to wether or not the amount of play in it is an issue or out of spec. Here’s the video.

19k approximately. I talked to a tech who said the Cush drive spacer slop is normal. Bearing is shot though.

It is just a spacer, the “play” is normal. If either end looks worn or pitted, replace it as it keeps the bearing in align when the rear axel is torqued — the Polaris price $18.59.

did you notice any noise coming from the rear sprocket? I have adjusted my belt so it rides right down the center, I am still getting some squealing noise.

I don’t get any noise from my belt. You might want to check your tension if it’s riding nice and centered and still noisy.

New tire and bearing is on. All is well. Now on to putting the stock ride height links back in. That battery box though! What a pain!

The bearing (which you have already changed) is the important one. the bushing main purpose is to prevent too much axial load on the bearings.
Bushing has little to no purpose for radial loads.(may have a small amount to keep concentricity of the cush drive and sprocket/pulley)
With the failure of the bearing, it may have caused some wear in the pully/sprocket - keep an eye on that bushing for the next tire change.
