so i went to the soggy bottom atv ranch...

i took my new king quad out there and that was the first time that i had been. had a blast and i for sure say everybody with a atv should give it a try. on the bad side of things we also took our 2006 suzuki vinson. we ran into a prob and im making sure im right on this before i order parts. just before my buddy got into the mud he hit his 4wd drive button and we heard a pop. i looked under the bike and the front right cv boot(the one closest to the wheel)was ripped and im pretty sure the joint is broke. i cant tell for sure before taking it all apart but it makes a popping noise while riding it and it pulls pretty bad to one side now. obviously we quit using the 4wd on it right then and just nursed it back to the truck. my question is.....do you think its the actual shaft that is broke. any help would be appreciated. oh and the boot has been tore for several weeks now if that makes a diff.

thanks

Yep you will need a new front shaft. It's an easy repair.
