Hello all, new to the forum, not new to Yamaha atv’s or sleds or bikes. Just picked up an 01 big bear in real solid shape. It needs a few things, one being a front driveshaft. Don’t ask me how but the previous owner broke an ear out of the front diff yoke, and thusly took the whole driveshaft out. I have the yoke at the transmission and that’s it. Not finding a lot available around online for a new one, and seems like most of the used ones are from the years surrounding 2001. For instance I found a decent 03 driveshaft that says it will not fit my 01. Looking for guidance on which years will work for my rig. Thanks in advance!!

I look up the different years on an OEM site. If the part numbers are the same it will fit. This has worked well over the years for parts interchangeable.

So, I've found the part number for the front shaft: 5FU-G6173-00-00. Looks like they were only the same shaft for 2000 and 2001. Not finding much luck around good ol' e-bay. Is there any way of "updating", so to speak, to the newer setup that anyone is aware of? Thanks
