850 Max XT-P
Go back next week, and try the same hill in low range, and post the results. May pay to change out the brake pads, and check rotors not warped. And bleed out old brake fluid.
I learned something new today. I love this forum. Thank you @CanAmRancher1 !The defenders do not have a one way bearing they have a regular needle bearing that free spins both directions. So once speeds are low enough and belt rides on primary bearing you wont have engine braking. Although this should be a speeds below approximately 6 or so mph. The defenders don't have nearly the engine braking of the outtys or even commander primarily because of the weight.
We were on a week-long trip around the Gaspe region of Quebec. It was an 800-mile ride ATV over 7 days and the owner of the Defender would have to drive over 12 hours to go back.Go back next week, and try the same hill in low range, and post the results. May pay to change out the brake pads, and check rotors not warped. And bleed out old brake fluid.
Absolutely, I will put some information together later this month or in the fall explaining the trip in detail.That climb in the Mont St-Louis area is very steep. It would not be easy to find another climb like it.
That must have been an amazing trip. The Gaspe peninsula is beautiful. If you would you tell us more about it in the Members Rides forum I'd appreciate it immensely.
