Outlander Rad Relocate Issue

Both of my Outlanders have the Can Am Rad Relocate installed. On each of them the rubber bushings have worn and had to be replaced, on my 2011, the bracket on the rad actually broke off , on a long ride, and the rad had to be replaced.

Anyone else having this issue with the rubber bushings? Or have a good fix, other than replacing them often?

Hmmm.....I have never heard of others having those issues. granted I have not had mine on that long but I have had zero issues with mine thus far on a 2011. maybe yours rattles too much due to metal on metal during install? I put rubber bumpers inbetween all metal when i installed mine.

Thats a good idea - when I replace the rubber bushings I will check it out to see if I can get some rubber in strategic place to combat the rattling.

Thanks

Probably cheaper to get the rad mount welded than replace the hole thing. Mine broke and I was gonna get a buddy to weld them but I found a new rad for $100.00 Havent changed it yet though. Tarp straps are currently still doing there job.

I had two sets of rubber bushings wear out on me on my 2010. I just hard mounted it with large washers, been perfect ever since. I don't think the rubber bushing were designed to sit with the rad laid back and weight on them all the time, that's why they fail quickly...and like you mentioned when they do fail your rad flops around
