I just replaced the CVs in my 2013 on both sides under extended warranty. I also just had to replace the CV on my girlfriend's 2014 on the caliper side which I did myself last night. I have 350 miles on mine, she has about 300. We do mostly semi-rough to smooth trail riding but nothing too extreme. My boots had slight tears so I chalked it up to that. Her boots are perfect.
Are the OEM CVs crap on these machines?

They are pretty weak for heavy the machine is.

But I would say 95% of axle issues are due to throttle control.

I have a 13 and a 14 with over 2000 miles on them and I have not had a cv problem yet. I thought I was having a cv issue a while back but it turned out to be a wheel bearing clicking and snapping. Hopefully I did not just jinx myself!!

That sounds more like it. I can't see having to replace CVs every few hundred miles. Good luck with that jinx thing! ;)

I have 3,000+ miles on my 2012 400ho with no axle issues.

But yes, 2011 - present are known for weak axles.

Same here we have over three thousand miles on both of our 2012 400 with no problems. We have stock size tires and I believe that helps
