Sorry it's not a ytm but it is a yamaha.. I'm trying to get my rear axle replaced in my 93 kodiak because the splines on the old shaft are stripped, but I can't get the new (for the kodiak it's new.. ) axle out of my parts quad.. anyone able to see what I'm missing? I can't see a snap ring so I'm not sure what it is I'm missing..

Have you tried heat?
A big hammer
Cut it, get a 16lb sledge and beat the hell out it
That bearing is prob rusted to the axle need some heavy rust penetration and then beat it till she pops.
Wd40 grease and a torch for heat. Did it to my big red and it came out
Don't really feel like cutting the axle I need lol
So with the nut on the end if the shaft I shouldn't damage the threads right?
I wouldn't risk it if you hit the nut to hard it will pop through threads
