stress cracks so they say

Well autopac declined my claim so I'm in the process of repairing it my self. They said Cat's have problems with there frames and it is common to happen. They said they found it on line. I don't know where they found that info because I can't find it. But anyway I got two new axles on order(rhino) because they are toast and two u joints. Just got to wait for my diff to come back and I can fab up a new better stronger mount. In the process I'm also going to remove my e brake completely. I find it useless. I have only ever used it while trailering it. so when I get to the point of getting the bracket made I'll post some pictures.

I would challenge that decision ... where does it say that an insurance co gets to decline on that basis
don't know what ya have do to no sig. line or what the particulars are.

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

The only Cats with cracked frames were in 2006 with the Kawasaki 650V2 engine. That's all I'm aware of.
Bombadier has the frame problems.....

I'm an insurance broker and I have never heard that one, no Ins Co can decline based on info found on the net, especialy if they can't tell you where they found the info... its crap if you dont mind me saying...

2012 XTZ 1400 miles, zero problems
AC Sport Seats, much much better... looks good too !

okay picked up my stuff today. Put my baby back together. Used Rhino axles from Super ATV amd u joints from Bike Man. (ATV603 for the rears.) I have the new diff mount done and installed. As I was putting it together I also removed the e brake and rear sway bar. I will be ordering the engine cover for a different model with out the e brake.I also put a cheap fuel filter on my gas vent line. I have heard in polarid rzr forums pumps going south because lines suck dirt and take out pumps I have a park lock to install plus a windshield from the rzr.( I like this better) I will post pictures when I have it. Any way took it for a ride I still like this better than any other sport Utv out there.

i can tell you from looking at the picts that some if not all of your problem is from running with the diff bolts loose. these do come loose so keep an eye on them. once they come loose it starts hammering the hell out of the brackets. the fronts will do the same!
