Put 40 miles on it at 40-50 mph yesterday to break in the new belt. Went out today and did four 0-60 runs to check how high the motor revs, and THE PIMARY BOLT BROKE!!!!!!! TRASHED THE PRIMARY AND SECONDARY!!!!! That's two breaks in two weekends!!!!! I don't trust this thing to go on a Mike's Sky Ranch run or to San Felipe for a week!!! People say that putting an aftermarket primary on it is the answer. Well, that's $850 that I kinda don't want to spend. Although, the wife is warming up to the idea. And there goes the warranty on that part of the drivetrain. And is the crank strong enough to handle it? THIS SUCKS!!! Every thing else is awsome about the Mav! But an unreliable cvt system sucks!!! Can Am needs a different primary.

They have an update kit for it which consists of a couple of slippery washers. Mine had one slippery one and one thick washer. It's just a bandaid.

That sucks glamisfan, did you have the updated slippery washer bullsh*t upgrade? We pay good money for these machines and have to deal with this crap. Can am needs to step up and fix this issue for good. I have a dune trip planned in a week. All I can think about is breaking down and ruining my vacation on my new 17.5k toy.

I know it's been said before but if I were you I would save yourself some pain and shell for a different primary at least until they come out with a real fix. It is easy to resell a CV tech or QSC primary as the quad guys are always looking for them too. $850 to buy, use it for a few months, sell it for $750 no problem. Can-Am needs to get his fixed but you need to ride in the mean time....

That also sucks about your diff seal. I hope it is an isolated case. Leaks are a show stopper for the mud guys as oil out also means water in... How do they have the rear diff vented? Is it a clear hose? I would check to make sure it is not kinked somewhere able to vent properly.

Yea RTB its a clear hose on both diff vents. Check and make sure the factory zip ties aren't too tight Glamis
