Broken Front Diff Mounts
« on: January 10, 2017, 08:07:06 PM »
So today while plowing felt a horrible vibration from the front end. After inspecting found that the mounts that are welded to the frame that the front differential bolts to both are snapped off. Only have 94 miles on the machine. Just curious if anyone else has had anything like this happen. Dealer says either a whole new frame or new wheeler. Just waiting to see what CFMOTO is going to do.

I haven't seen that one yet. When you get out of warranty, I would beef up the ears on that mount. Maybe they would be willing to bring it to a fab shop and have it done now. Might be cheaper for them and you will have a stronger mount.

Honestly I think that's what caused it being loose to begin with and rubbed until it broke

I was thinking the same thing definitely don't want to go through this again
