wheel bearing greaser tool and axle nut torque

Hello Everyone:

I need to purchase a wheel bearing greaser tool for my 2018 Can Am defender HD-10. Looking for the model that you can grease bearings without removing axles . What tool would be the best too get.
Also what is the torque on axle nuts.

Thank You kenner

Don't believe there is any tool to grease them without removing the axle (the only atv I have seen that can do that is the Polaris). On the Can Am's you have to remove the axle but you do not have to remove the bearing from the knuckle. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Can-Am-Comm...diHL:rk:1:pf:0 It's a must have tool if you do your own maintenance. My service manual says 151lbf*ft =/- 11 for my 6x6, don't know it that would apply to yours.

There is a greaser tool for Can-Am. There is also a You-Tube videos out on how to use them. I seen the video and it was a Maverick front hub and they did not have to remove as much as on the ATVs. I would use Google to find out more on the Wheel Bearing Greaser tool.

Will this one fit my 2015 Outlander or is it just for the maverick?

I just greased my bearings on my 18 outty max. You do have to remove the axle, lower ball joint, and lower shock support to make it easy to get the axle out but it is surprisingly easy and quick process. For the amount of grease that goes in there it is well worth it. Plus you can check your brakes while your there. My bearings took about 20 pumps of grease to fill.

I WISH, but alas, no I donít think so.
If you take a look at the difference between these 2 videos you can see that on the defender the axle has room between the shaft and the bearing so they can slide the tool into the bearing without removing the axle, but on the outlander there is little to no room between the shaft and the bearing and the axle has to be removed.

Is it possible to remove the axle from just the wheel hub without removing it from the differentials?

When you all watch the videos, they also tell you there is a different size of tool. Can-Am has just two, one that fits the Outlanders and one for Side x Sides. I bought mine from Royal Distributing and a 1 1/6 ' socket. Polaris is the only other manufacture I've seen so far that also has this tool. Like I said, it is a lot easier to grease the Side x Sides.
