Hey, new to can am and the forum.
I picked up a 12 outlander 800r that wouldn't start, weak crank. Pulled it apart and and found spun connecting rod bearing. Waiting on new crankshaft and rod, however Im concerned about the splines on the driveshaft and would rather replace it now instead of pulling everything apart again later. Are the splines on the front of the driveshaft supposed to be ground down on the first 1/2 inch or full splines all the way to the end? The kid I bought it off was clearly not very gentle on this machine.

Thanks for any help!

Splines should go all the way to the end of shaft. Get a new one.

Damn, that's what I thought but didn't want to believe it.
I'll see If my local axle shop can repair it. Thanks for the help!

How do the splines look on the yoke that slides on to those splines?

Hard to tell from picture but as long as tops of splines aren't sharp they will be fine.

But yeah, as @CanAmRancher1 said, splines should be full to the end ^
