When I ride my 2106 outlander max xt 1000r
Over uneven roads as one tire is up higher than the other I get a loud cracking noise in the middle of the bike by my feet it seems.i was told by can am that it most likely the rear torsion bar needs to tightened, can anyone refer me to a video on how to do this? please or some sort of instructions

Did you tighten the 4x bolts that go through the silver steel mounting blocks for the torsion bar, or did you just tighten the swingarm pivot bolts?

The mounting blocks are well known for being loose and making the noise you've described. The bolts have to be very tight.
