After replacing my carrier bearings twice in just a little over a year I realized the factory lock nut system on the Suzuki LTR 450 is flawed. I had no problem at all with this part it quickly and flawlessly replaced the stock nut and is much easier to install and remove. So far so good have 2 races and couple hard trail rides on the part and no problems.
Much better than stock hands down (especially the Honda which I have not been a fan of since they invented theirs in the early 1900's) If your going to replace your axle go ahead and get this. It will make life much better come maintenence time..
