Belt life and bearing tools

The CVT Belt- (Broke with less than 200 miles, I know I should have been taking it easy/ breaking it in still!) Very Important Tooling Needed. I just broke my first belt on my 2018 Defender XMR after a long day of pushing the machine tromping through some deep snow. We were going to change the belt right there as I had a spare belt and tools with. Took off the CVT cover and to our surprise the secondary clutch is different from other models! We were hoping to just use a M8x1.25x70mm hardened bolt to separate the clutch, but there were no holes on the clutch. After reviewing the manual it points out that you need a special Adapter (Can AM #708200686) and the Puller (#529000072) to push them apart. Called around to my local Can Am Dealers and no one has them in stock, great! I was able to find the Adapter on Ebay and the Puller on Rocky Mountain ATV . Make sure you order these tools to have on hand so you dont get caught with your pants down like me. As an FYI, I have a buddy that has 1300 miles on his belt and still going strong.

Thanks for sharing your experience.  I own a 2019 Defender XMR.  Are the tools required in your case the same for the 2019?  If so, I am going to purchase them ASAP.  Also what belt did you use to replace the stock one?  Did you stick with the Can Am belt?

Spartan45acp, yes the tooling for my 2018 is the same tooling required for your 2019 as well. I ended up sticking with the stock Can Am belt, mainly due to the price tag ($103) that Rocky Mountain ATV had on them. I did consider buying the EPI Severe Duty Belt from Dennis Kirk ( https://www.denniskirk.com/epi-performance/severe-duty-belt-we265030.p020568.prd/020568.sku), but I couldn't find much feedback on the belt.

Hi,

 I checked those two part numbers on eBay and they say it don’t fit a 2019 Defender H10 Max Cab XT ?

Any idea why it might be different than 2016 ?  Did Can am change the secondary clutch ?

 

Thanks

TB
