This thread is making me afraid to ride my 2008 TRV. I am mechanical but have never taken apart gearing before so I have recruited some friends to help. I am going to go back through the many posts and review but if someone can point me towards any steps already written up that would be great.

I plan to take it apart and correct in the next 30 days to avoid an endo suprise.

Thank you all for the fear/encouragement.

front diff

My diff blew up on my 2008 TRV this weekend. Took it all apart. It even bent the top mounting tabs. Going to the dealer tomorrow to see if there is anything that they will do for me.

I have an 08 700h1 the pin let loose back in 09 had diff replaced now it happened again. Dealership says no warranty left and that since I already got a new one no chance of cat replacing again!! Also should I pull diff to verify and take pics that it was the pin again? Or would tearing in to it just make cat less likely to cover?

I dont think it will matter if you take it out to see if the pin let go. I thought that the new diffs corrected this problem. The diffs are back ordered till July. I am patiently waiting for one

Yea but I'm just afraid maybe I got a bad 09 diff or somthing. I told my dealer about it they said not their problem even if they sold me a bad diff to begin with

'06 500 with poor Spider Gear Pin Welds

Not sure what this is worth, but I picked up this bike a few months ago without the 4x4 working so decided to tear down the front diff to see what's going on, this is what I found. I dunno

I know why there's no 4x4, but I wanted to show the welds.
