I have been thinking about ordering some Rhino 2.0 axles for spares or replace and use the OEM for spares. I am fairly new to SxS riding and was just wondering what some thoughts are? I ride Wind Rock and Royal Blue mostly.
Also, I think I would have to get three to cover having a spare for the entire machine?? The two fronts are different and the backs the same???

thanks in advance

I thought all axles were the same no matter front rear or left or right but I could be wrong. The KRX tends to break the drive shaft before axles from my understanding. Knock on wood I haven’t had either happen yet.

The axels are different, which really sucks, and is expensive to carry spares.

The rears are the same with the exception of one has right hand threads, the other has left hand threads. The front axles are not the same at all.

I wouldn't worry about trying to carry spare axles for the KRX. I have heard of almost no axles breaking. As mentioned above, the front drive shaft tends to break first, and even that is an uncommon occurrence.
The KRX is no Canam or RZR. No need to carry a box full of spare parts on every ride.

I bought spare axles for the Yamaha X2 a year ago and they’ve been great insurance. Never needed them. Wish I had that money back. After I bought them I figured out my riding style doesn’t break axles. Wheel bearings yes... not axles.

I suspect the KRX will be the same.

They are very tough axles. If I ever break one I will get some RCV's and forget about it.
