  • Your Ride:Can Am Outlander 500 -15

Posted 24 June 2019 - 06:14 AM

I mostly ride paved and dirt roads with my Outlander 500 -15 with CST Stryder street tires. The problem has been the tires wearing out really fast, and turning little tighter on pavement makes the front wheels (I believe) skid and jump.

 

I run 2wd on pavement of course.

 

When I jack up the bike and put it in 2wd both front tires are spinning at the same time. When I put in 4wd the front tires spin opposite directions.

 

Is this all caused by bad Visco Lok? Could I disable the Visco and be able to ride on the roads better?

Sounds normal to me. The rear wheels are tied together in the rear end. Both axles have to spin the same direction.

If you try to hold the front tire that spins backwards in 4wd, you should feel the visco kick in and pull that tire forwards.

These things aren't designed to be driven on pavement. Solid rear axles will eat tires in a hurry, and the front tires spinning in opposite directions when elevated is normal. Lift up the rear end of a truck and you will see the same thing.

One thing that might help is to keep the tire pressure on the high end and use a narrow tire. That would put a little less contact patch on the road. Traction might suffer a little on slick surfaces though.
