Ok these are 2008 models, I would imagine that a lot of these atvs front diffs have already been replaced. What would AC do about that?

I know I have rebuilt the diff in a 2008 model for a friend and I told him about this recall but were wondering what AC will do in this case. What is yalls opinions?

Im assuming this is because of the pin dropping? thats what his did.

I have another question. When I took his apart his looked just like mine did the first time I rebuilt mine years ago and its an 07, pin dropped. So what was the difference between the 07's and 08's/09's and did they really fix it late 09 and up? Pin needs to be welded solid!

The pin is only part of the issue, the thing that causes the ring gear to exit stage left or just make holes in the case is the side gears breaking when the diff is locked and pieces of them getting jammed between the ring and pinion.
I have changed many diff's, 3 in one bike alone but only one has actually had the pin dropped.

The entire diff is too weak.

ATV: 2008 366 Lime Green
Hmmm. I will call the 1-800 number on Monday to see if mine is affected. The articles I have read said ALL 2008 ATV models, but the bulletin posted here says 400cc & up. Mine is a 366. I have not received anything in the mail yet, has anybody else received anything on the 366? I bought mine new, and it has always had a clunking sound coming from the front diff area. I will post my findings after 10/20/2014.

Just got my letter yesterday, but read this topic weeks ago? why so long to get letter? I called my local dealer to make an appointment/drop off machine, and he has to order the parts, AND, had no idea of the recall ? So, Minnesota's deer opener is in 3 weeks, and he said he can't possibly have it fixed by then, and told me," don't ride it " I asked him what fails, or goes wrong, said he wasn't sure? Not very happy with this.......

The delay in your getting the letter after dealers get notice is supposed to be so they can get parts on the way. When a dealer gets notice of a recall it is only a couple mouse clicks to get the list of affected Vin numbers and registered owner information for units they have sold.
Outside of part availability there is no reasonable reason to not be able to get you going inside of your timeframe.
