Rear Differential Heat
Came back from a 170km ride yesterday and was strapping down the back and almost burnt myself when I touched the rear differential.
The rear diff on a new Outlander 1000 with us was only moderately warm.
Does anybody else notice that there rear differential is overly warm after a ride?

Kind of an old post but, I just got my 019 X2 and notice that the rear diff is directly under the exhaust just like my old Viking was.
It would get so hot you couldn't touch it. I added a thin plate between them and the temps went WAY down.
Figure I'll do the same with the X2.
Mark, picture of how you are doing the thin plate. Thanks.

I never ceased to be amazed how you can have such a clean photo on a used machine. Even the rubber looks like its been wiped down with Armour All or equiv.
some of you have secrets unknown to the rest of us.
