Supposedly they did a bunch of upgrades for 2018. It SHOULD be fixed. We will find out as people get them and put miles on them.

And note the full upgrade was only done to the 2018 XP1000 solo. The 850s only got a stronger pinion cover, not a diff case, and the touring didn't get anything.

i JUST PICKED UP A NEW PINION COVER FEW WEEKS BACK FROM "CUSTOM MOTO QUAD' IN QUEBEC. IT WAS CHEAP

PIECE OF MIND FOR ME, NOW I'M GLAD I DID KNOWING THAT THE 2017 ARE GERNADING WITH STOCK SET UP.

HAVENT INSTALLED YET

FOR ANYONE IN USA CDN $$ IS AROUND 1.30 EXCHANGE SO GOOD DEAL. THINK I PAID $100 FOR A COVER WITH A COSMETIC DEFECT ? HIS REG PRICE IS $160 CDN

Just noticed this after I posted in the other thread.

Wondering if something happens to the diff of Polaris will cover since it has an aftermarket cover I know each dealer is different.

Interesting read. Couldn't see pics but still interesting. I wonder if those rzrs were blowing the pinion covers off or having similar problems
