If Country Cat can't help you, maybe try eBay or nFlow. I thought I drove my AC hard, guess not.

Well its still to be determined but others on the forum are saying my oneway bearing or blevel gear went bad i haven't pulled the pan yet due to moving to a different state.

Ive showed the crack to a few welders and there all suggesting me replace it cause the crack is close to mounting holes and up and over ridges in the pan.

where i relocated to there is an arctic cat dealer and service center i mite end up giving them a shout and see what they will charge its riding season and im dieing to ride!

Have you tried moving it before you spend the money on the pan ?

If they use a tig they will be able to weld it up better than before. Good shop should be able to in a hour or less.

The bottom of the engine isn't really an oil pan, its part of the crank case, which is machined assembled, and must be replaced as a matched set.

Post a picture of the carnage.

the picture below, I've circled where they break when the bevel gears come unglued. Usually happens from landing a jump at full throttle, but could happen any time you have a ton of wheel speed, low ground speed, and instant traction.

even if you find one, and buy it, you will have all sorts of problems with the bearings and seals.

All 3 pieces of the crankcase must be machined while bolted to each other, and are a permanently matched set.

I agree this is definitely best but I have a salvage yard and over the years I've had people buy just one half of a crankcase and use it instead of getting both. Normally its on sport bikes where the chain has jumped off and busted the left side case. I've never had anyone actually say they have had issues when doing this. Do you think that there is enough difference in the machining process when making the cases to actually cause problems if not using the complete set of cases?

left right, is a little different than top bottom, as in the case of top bottom, the bearings are squeezed by the 2 case halves, and not only do the dimensions have to be correct, the surfaces have to line up perfectly

I have a 2014 mad pro 1000. I'm also having an oil leak. Looks to be coming from the oil pan and running down! I'm not sure how to fix this or if the whole motor has to be pulled. Any suggestions?
