Anyone know what changes canam made to the 2011 xmr rear diffs? Part # changed. They went from $715 to close to $1000. Dealer about to replace mine and i was curious to see what they changed. They needed to upgrade something from all the reviews i've read!

No thats not me. I think the 2011 still had straight splines. mud n wheels on facebook has a lot of videos on the g2 diff which is what came in the xmr. He has figured out how to set these diffs up and make them last. Im thinking they must have completely redesigned them for that price difference.

gen 2 XMRs have helical cut splines, which are stronger going forward than straight cut splines....the xmr is he only one with helical cut splines, from what I understand....that is one reason why everyone upgrades to the xmr diff. Another reason is the casing is bigger and stronger than the standard diff....which means it can take more abuse....as far as mud n wheels goes, I'm seen his videos. Would be interested to see what he does to improve them and see pics of his work. If I ever break one, I might consider one of his depending on his price and quality of work

I sent him a pm he said for all new bearings gears seals ready to go $750. I may be wrong but i thought 2011 came with commander diff which is a regular g2 diff and 2013 xmr diff were the upgraded ones. Like i said i was just curios what i was getting into.

I know it's cheaper than the dealer....but I wonder what his improvement is over buying from the dealer besides cost....like what solution did he find that was causing so many failures,,

Dont he never says. Im thinking the way he sets backlash and bearings. I know he said he is very paticular the way he sets his wear pattern. Supposedly he has some high horse powered pit racers doing r&d on them.

If he offers a warranty on his diff, then that in itself is better than BRP...

I seen that one for $555 to my door but dealer already has mine apart for warranty which they denied. I tried calling powersports warehouse several times but it hangs up before anyone answers. I could do it all myself but i thought the 5 yr extended warranty would cover it. we have a big ride the 23rd - 26th so im kind of pressed for time since they took 2 weeks to deny it
