ATV Live Axle Hub
atv live axle hub
I'm using the hubs for a go kart with a differential axle. Both hubs are bent and cause the wheels to wobble when driving the cart. I tried to straighten them and file away some excess weld but wheels still wobble.

well when i got these hub i first noticed the not so good weld on this, i might actully reweld them as i dont know how save they are, and on the inside oh it where the grub screw comes though i had to file it so it would fit on my axle

These work fine on small go carts, trailors, and super compatable for lots of projects, and a good price.

ATV Live Axle Hub
this is a great product, it is strong and fit the rims that i needed it too. Only problem was a little left over weld that i filed down with ease its were the pen is pointing in the picture. Other than that no complaints. It does not come with any key wheys so be aware of that!. Those are easy to get however at any car or hardware store generally. In addition to that there are also no lock nots that come with it . If you buy the bearing kit however it comes with the bolts for the end of the axle. It fits the 1 inch diamiter axles perfectly and takes up the space at the end of the axle not covered by threads leaving just the threads sticking out.So far the hubs look great and strong. I am using them for a 22 hp on/offroad go kart.

Alot of go kart sites carry this same thing for $35+ so Northern is by far the best source. Like the others said I had to clean some spatter out of the bore. I am also not quite sure what the set screw is supposed to be for as the hub is retained with the nut on the axle shaft itself-my expectation was for the set screw to hold the key in place but it it located 180* opposite the keyway.

IVE BOUGHT 10 OF THESE AND BREAKING EVERY SINGLE ONE, I FINALLY HAD IT AND THE LAST TWO I BOUGHT, I RE-WELDED THE SEEMS, AND SLEEVED THE SHAFT. EITHER THE WELDERS WOULD BREAK OR THE KEY WOULD SPLIT THE SHAFT AND LAKE IT LOOK LIKE A BLOWN UP SHOT GUN BARREL........GRANT IT MY GO KART HAS A 750cc V-4 WITH 106HP-82LB/TQ....BUT I CANT EVEN SEEING THESE WORKING ON AN ATV WHICH GETS PUT THREW MORE STRESS THAN MY GO KART

Good for the price
I had to clean up weld spatter from the bore. I also had to clean burrs from the set screw hole in order to get them on my axle. Overall a good sturdy unit.

I have had very good luck with this hub. I do however remove the lugs, drill the holes open and install 1/2 lugs so that I can use trailer wheels. Make sure it will fit your rim before buying.
