Seen threads like these on other forums I frequent for different platforms, couldn’t find one in here for the Outlander.. so here it goes.

This thread could be a success or an utter failure. So I’ll start, ideally post photos along with what you actually did.

Installed one of the aluminum shifter brackets.

Not gonna lie this defender has 20000 miles. It has always started and never ticked so this is the first time I adjusted them and I only adjusted one valve about .02mm. I have reset tensioners on it but had never done valves before.

Put on BRP Hand and Thumb warmer and Track Module. Only 29 hours on ATV and starter is toast. Gone to dealer for that fix, lol. The hole left side of ATV gets removed. All plastic including side front wheel inners, left side plastic and left running board. The clutch cover has to be removed and both primary and secondary clutches removed so you can remove the inner clutch cover. All this so you can get to starter. Dealer was dumb founded that the starter was shot at this time, not a common thing for them to see.

Yes. Here is a good video. I can't remember if he prelaods the spring, but I don't recommend for the long term to preload the spring.

I bought one of these a couple of years ago. I'm going to have to make it a priority and get that installed this coming spring. I just hate taking off the panels. I was going to wait and do it during the next oil change and filter change, but that might be a while yet.
Don’t hold your breath. I don’t feel much of a difference, the machine humping is still required

Thanks. I picked it up 1 month ago. Only 350 kms on it. I added the fairing, rear box, foot rests, fender extensions and 28 inch Maxxis Tires, and heated grips. The person before me installed led lights. I also added 1.5 inch spacers in the front and 2 inch in the back.
