Gorilla is the only outer that has not failed. I've broke a couple rear shafts in shock form and other aftermarket companies. You can buy just the gorilla outer and put it on your shaft that broke for about $250. There is no other fix available on the market at this time. Gorilla made the threaded portion larger and appeared to HT it differently.

Also chances are you'll need a new caliper, new rotor, new bearing and I would go ahead and have them put another hub on it. I bent my hub and my brakes were terrible until I changed it.

$250 for one. They're proud of them but they know they're the only ones that have "resolved" the problem. A complete assembly from them is about $435 per

I'm almost willing to bet that the nut was loose and that's why it broke so easily. Please please please let BRP customer service know what happened so this doesn't happen on the next model or so they can build a "race version" to correct the problem.

EDIT: being that you broke it where the bearing surface meets the splines I would say you either hit something crazy hard which is unlikely cause you have a straight factory radius rod or you have a faulty axle shaft. I've never seen a shaft break where yours did, every one I've seen has broke like mine. The nut being loose could still cause that but it would be really hard.
