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.

I was looking at it before putting the RH plasic side panel on.......Can a person get the valve cover out the RH side of the machine if the shift linkage is removed from the trans?
Yeah, I changed out my front cylinder valve cover with an aluminum cover. That was easy. Have not done the rear one on the left side yet because there is much work and colorful language involved... lol

The rear cylinder? Don’t think so. It can come out on the left hand side - exhaust doesn’t need to be removed, the small heat shield removed and that little duct that joins to the cvt.
Okay, that wouldn't be as bad as pulling the exhaust (again). Think I'll go ahead and do it tomorrow and be done with it.

Okay, I just finished replacing my rear plastic valve cover with an aluminum one. It took me a little longer than I had planned as I encountered a few challenges along the way including me dropping the front battery bracket bolt down into the abyss. Doesn't it figure?! Luckily, after I removed the plastic CVT duct I was able to retrieve it!!

Thanks for the heads-up on how to do it w/o removing the exhaust!!! (y)

Here's the cover in place (and my professional exhaust wrap). :LOL:

As I was into my rear valve cover change above, I had the front RH inner fender panel off and notice a leak at the coolant tank connection.

Well, this bothered me. So, this morning I replaced it.
I had to remove the front rack, lift the front plastic up, remove the dash support, move the air intake hose out of the way and disconnect the coolant tank from its mounting location (to access the clamp).

Here's a view with the clamp and coolant tank back in place and prior to the other components back in place.

Just install regular hose clamps. Common issue.

I switched from the Warn plow front mount to the belly mount because it cracked the aluminum sub-frame. Then I adjusted the pulley setup to allow for fine control of plow height. Also drilled a 1/16 hole in the lower fairlead roller so that grease can be pumped in.

I had spacer's in use before i get these alloys.. Stock alloy's had enough room to use oem nut's at spacer. So they look like they were 8 bolt alloys. These alloy's had not enough room that configuration.. I had to buy steel alloy nut's (oem 4,41€/each).

What come's to steering with spacer:
No different at all.
These alloy's has different offset then stock. They will rub in front lower a-arms at full turn. So that's why i put spacer's back and get tires little wide then stock. Lift kit also narrowed front transverse width.

Did change the battery on my fathers renegade and the cvt inlet boot because it disintegrated . (2007 manufacturing year) also did order some aluminium thermostat housings because the bleeding screws are leaky

Anyone if you can buy just the heated visor outlet to have it wired to your machine? Is there a specific name for these outlets? I can’t seem to locate online. Don’t want the full wiring kit from can am, $80…

I went for a snow ride yesterday and half way through, the (CVT) started screeching and the ATV started creeping without any throttle input. I've been on this forum for long enough to know that this was most likely a dry one-way bearing even though it's been 65 hours and 1,300 kms since I last greased it with isoflex.

Anyway, fast forward to today and I took the primary off and cleaned it and greased the one-way bearing and it's back to normal. However, I noticed some slider shoes' wear so I'll order them and change them next time I'm there.

I wanted to ask whether the primary's governor cup is supposed easily slide inside the outer half or it's normal for it to slide with a decent amount of friction? Is a friction slide an indication of worn slider shoes since they don't all wear evenly and this causes an imbalance in the governor cup?

I also added the grease zerk to the lower steering bushing but I didn't ride it enough to test the effectiveness of this mod. Will report on that later.

If anything, a new set of slider shoes would give the highest level of friction sliding between the two. As the shoes wear, the spider should slide on the cup with little to no feedback. Don't want your lever arms fighting friction, that'll give some weird clutch behavior
