2015 visc lok spider gear chipping

vics lok QE 2015 2 of the spider gears chipping the ends off after 300 miles?
These are the output to the wheel gears in the unit. the other two gear look perfect. What the deal with that ? Is it GNK didn't heat treat them right? We having hard time with the dealer and Can Am even wanting to help with this problem. How many more units are out there that have the same problem? This is my sons unit that he just bought in 2015 xmr and I have the same unit that I bought in sept of 2015. I also have 2014 commander with the same vics lok installed in it.. Looks to me Cam Am would want to see what going on real fast to fix the problem if it something that is still going on are there is going be a lot of unhappy can am owns. Hopefully its just a one time batch thing.

i have a can am maverick max 2015 . i believe the transmission. is making noise. To me sounds like gears are not meshing right and chipping. looking at seeing what the problem is this weekend. i i have less than 3000 miles on it. if i bought a razor i do not believe i would have this problem. also gone thru 2 belts .had to buy a new clutch system efi. problem after problem. seems like some defects in this
