Exclamation 2012 Can-Am Outlander/Renegade Gen2 frame cracking! *Pictures Posted*

Hey guys with 2012 Gen2 Outlanders and Renegades!

A weak spot has shown up in these new Gen2 frames, The support for the DPS and upper A-arms where it ties in to the frame in the front, behind the rad. Cracks have started to form on the frame due to the stress caused by flexing.

Check your rides to make sure they're not cracked!
Mine is cracked both sides!

I found them after reading about it in another forum.
The pictures below my picture are from the member of the other forum.

Here's a picture of my frame:


Here's pictures of of the other guys quad:



Here's a video of the cracks on my bike:



UPDATE:

Cracks forming on the front of those tubings:






ANOTHER UPDATE:

Here's the bracket that BRP came up with:
You decide what you think.

I'm tearing her down tomorrow for an immediate fix and gussets to stiffen it all up.
I'll post what I did when I'm done!
I'm actually pumped to do this!

Wow... that sucks. Maybe a little more R&D was in order for the G2 bikes.

No I just found them. I don't think I'll waste my time with BRP. What are they going to do, certainly not change the frame! Lol
I'll just beef it up so I can pound the living daylights out of this thing. lol

Maybe the 2013 bikes will be upgraded but us 2012 owners are the guinea pigs.

Send a message via Yahoo to SiAScORCH
I'd contact BRP about it to see how they will address this situation. That way the rest of us know when this happens.
