Friend of mine with a 12' 1k outty blew his rear diff while running 29.5 outlaws and wants me to install the 15' 800 xmr diff with the 800 xmr driveshaft. Does anyone know if this will be a bolt in simple swap or are there differences between then two that will complicate this? Thanks in advance.

Im pretty sure you wouldn't have an issue. Since the g2 chassis are the same. You may want to call the dealer and see what they say. I would talk to a mechanic there not the glorified parts guy.

XMR diffs are different. Have spiral cut gears and two input shaft bearings instead of one making the case longer and the need for a shorter prop shaft.

Isn't the 800 xmr on a standard G2 frame and the 1000xmr on the max G2 frame (9" longer).

Also the 1000xmr has the gear reduction. Isn't that the diff gears?

Gear reduction is in the tranny. Diffs are the same in 1k and 800 I believe but the 800 has the shorter shaft that I think will work in the standard G2 bikes. I am wondering if the output shaft on the tranny is the same or different from XMR series to standard bikes.

To sum up those threads, you will need a different input yoke if you buy the 800 xmr shaft the 800/650/500 and 1000 have different yokes. Otherwise bolt in swap.
