Hi Everyone,

I was just letting you guys know and also get some input on these parts. Specifically I am trying to make sure that I don't run into any problems with this again. Last weekend I went for a little ride (as in maybe 2000 ft in the desert and less than 1/2 mile total) and found myself sitting on three wheels and the fourth wheel about 50 ft to the left. I am not sure what the part is called, but on can-am's schematic it is called a cv. The part that I am talking about is the one that goes through the spindle and bolts to the hub. The cv ? was sheared off right at the spindle. Is this common? Is there something that I can do to ensure that I don't have this problem again? What are your experiences. My dealer is replacing everything under warranty so not a huge deal right now, but I can't imagine being miles out in the desert and having this issue. I attached some picture so that you can see better.

I have taken the machine to the dealer and it should be all fixed by the end of next week, but this seems to be an issue that shouldn't happen. I was pretty surprised that it broke without a flat tire, without hitting anything, without anything else being messed up. BRP is replacing basically everything except the a arms and the wheel (which weren't damaged). I did have an issue with not being able to get the alignment right, and I wonder if the nut was loose and causing my alignment problems and also ultimately leading to this. My machine is a 2014 max xrs. I have about 1000 miles on it. All in the desert here in Arizona.

Yes it was broke in the middle of the splines. Not where yours was. The hub, rotor, end of the shaft and nut were all with the wheel and in tact when I found the wheel.
