Default CV Boot ???

I have to replace a torn boot and was wondering if you can use the same Boot all the way around the Rhino. I know yamaha recomends using theirs but I have found some that are a lot less expensive. While I was buying one I wanted to get a spare to carry with me when we go off on weekend long rides. A universal boot would be a big Plus for this. Any suggestions on this let me know. And if you know of a good place to purchase boots and wheel bearings let me know. Thanks

you don't mention the year of your rhino.
the outer CV boots are the same for years 05-07, and they made a change on the outer's for 08/09. I'm not sure about the 04's......
The inner's are a little smaller then the outer's for all years.

wow, threw me a curve ball -
I'm not sure if the 450's use the same as the 660/700's or not...
maybe someone else can jump in here and help.

a good thing to pack for a trail spare is duct tape. if you get a rip just wind duct tape all around it. just have someone give it some gas and follow behind till it is all wrapped up. i've rode mine twice like this before until i got my replacement.

Hmm imagine that duct tape fixes everything lol. Great idea though. I would think a universal CV boot would work since it is called a "universal" boot.

LOL, yeah just realized that universal doesn't really mean such. Kind of hard to get a universal CV boot to fit a CV joint on a Full size truck compared to an ATV. Slight size difference there LOL.

I found exactly what I needed and recommend them to everyone. It's called the FAST BOOT. It fits inner and outer all the way around any of the rhinos. Same Boot will work On Honda and just about any other fourwheel drive atv/Utv. It has two sizes on the big end so you can cut the larger end off to fit on smaller CVs which is what I had to do on mine this morning. ANOTHER BONUS!!!! This boot is so pliable that it will slide right over CV without having to remove it from the axle. I didn't use that method because my boot had been torn for a while and want to clean out the CV first.

Thanks for the info, when I can afford to get my Rhino, I'll pickup a couple to keep on hand just in case. I don't do any extreme driving but its always nice to have extra parts on hand.
