Default ball joints wont fit my 06 440?

hey guys last year i was searching info on doing the lower ball joints in my 06 iqr 440, i came across a thread and akpilot said that the GE35ES2RS ball joints were a cheap alternative to buying new from polaris.

well i ordered those from china last year and only just got around to trying to install them last night.

the outside diameter of them are smaller then the hole in the a arm. im wondering now if maybe the 06 a arms had a different ball joint then say, the 08 600RR? anyone have a cross reference on the 06 ball joint so i can check out local bearing suppliers?

Thanks, Cory

the stock ones have a slit on the outer race that compresse when installed. maybe the bearing you have is based of the expanded diameter. if you get my drift.

Umm, I believe you were given the wrong info. Ball joints are the same 2005 - 2009.
GE35ES2RS is supposed to have an ID of 35mm and OD of 55mm, I don't have a stock ball joint at hand but they're definitly larger than 55mm

EDIT: From old threads it seems that the one first mentioned is a GE 35GS-2RS not GE 35ES-2RS ! OD of 62mm, seems about right to me?

i thought i read in that thread that the only difference between the GS and the ES was that one was a bit more heavy duty (ex it would last longer at extreme angles) other then that i was under the impression they were the same?
