Anyone who owns a jacked up and highly modified Polaris General will tell you that repairs, replacements, and broken components are just a part of the game. You have to pay to play, and it seems as though the relationship between how hard you play and how much you pay is directly correlated. Even stock Polaris Generals aren’t impervious to the extreme forces and punishment to which they are subjected. This is especially true for Polaris General prop shafts, which can twist, bend and shear on hard impacts. Carrier bearings, differentials, and the splines of the driveshaft are particularly vulnerable, and shift phase problems can unsettlingly noisy to say the least. And following the Polaris General driveshaft recall in 2017, the skepticism of many riders vis-a-vis stock Polaris General drive shafts has only grown, leading to a mass exodus away from OEM drive shafts and toward aftermarket, Polaris General drive shafts.
While complete driveline replacements like those by CCI or Sandcraft are an option, they are quite expensive and the benefits they provide are dubious. As such, many riders have resorted to phasing and balancing their stock shafts or going with options like SuperATV’s Rhino prop shaft. These aftermarket UTV prop shafts for the Polaris General utilize the superior CV joint technology, which is a giant leap over the u-joint days of old. An aftermarket Polaris General driveshaft will not only increase the strength of your vehicle’s drivetrain, but it will also reduce under-foot noise and make takeoffs and direction changes smoother and less jerky. So if you’re looking for a replacement prop shaft for your Polaris General, you’ve come to the right place, because the breadth of drive shafts available through Everything Polaris Ranger is second to none.
