  • Your Ride:2017 Outlander XT-P 1000R

Posted 01 June 2017 - 11:26 PM

I came across these on YouTube the other day. They are just being released as of two days ago. I'm wondering if these will solve the problems with the front diff. Instead of how the visco works this locks the front tires to spin the same. That is one thing I miss about my sportsman is the awd system in technical situations. Here's some pics. Oh and from what I have seen these will run about $400.

this is being talked about by a few peeps out there.. It seems to work good if you watch the videos they have.. and its for the sxs machines.
I know a fellow here where i live in Alberta that is doing this swap to his maverick soon here and then will know on the resutls once he tests it.. by what i have seen till now and heard they should work good

Just looked on their website. Says it will fit 2008-17 renegades and 2006-17 outlanders. So this could be a viable option when my visco "edit for bad language"s the bed or I get tired of it.

That's an interesting find.

I have fitted many of these style diff locks to 4wd's in my past. They have been badged by many names like, Lokka, LockRight and Detroit E-Z locker here in Australia. Fitted them all.

The design seems to work well for most people, but won't handle competition style 4wding.

I'm speaking specifically from 4wd fitments. I have zero experience in quads or SxS's.

Whilst they may work ok in a SxS with a steering wheel, I can imagine that it could be a different story when they are fitted to a quad with handle bars.

These units will give you 100% positive drive to the front wheels, so if the wheel gets traction you will need to be prepared for it.

Generally speaking they will just ratchet over when running in 2wd, as they require the drive shaft (from the gearbox) rotation to actuate the drive teeth.

This video does a pretty good job of explaining how they work.

The rolling diameter of the tyres from side to side is critical to get smooth action out of them. If you run odd pressures, you will have strange things going on when running on hard pack trails.
