It doesn’t matter what kind of Can-am Defender you own or are considering, running power steering in your side-by-side is a must for most riders. While Some Can-am Defenders come with stock power steering, you can get a new HD10 or HD8 without power steering for almost $2,500 cheaper than the DPS model. Even if money isn’t an issue, you still might want to think about getting the Convenience Package HD8 — which has a lockable/unlockable rear differential and has the removable store on the dash that the base machine doesn't — and adding aftermarket Can-am Defender power steering later. Test drive one with and without power steering and you’ll see how big of a difference the ride quality is. And if you factor in the price of a power steering kit plus installation costs, you’re still going to be under the cost of the same UTV that comes with power steering from the factory. SuperATV makes a great power steering unit that comes in two different power wattage options — both of which are comparable, if not better, than stock power steering. You may not be able to turn by blowing on your steering wheel, but you’ll definitely be able to move the wheel with your pinky while not moving sitting on 42” tires. The only downside is that you might not be able to feel any binding in the steering rack when turning, which can lead to cracked steering racks if you’re not cognizant.
For all the macho men out there with big heavy arms, power steering may not be 100% necessary. But it sure makes a hell of a difference on those long days through winding and bumpy trails. If you don’t notice your stock or aftermarket Can-am power steering working, it’s likely not, because the difference is night and day. If the power steering on your Can-am Defender feels like it has shut off or is unresponsive, check the fuse under the front panel or hood. There should be two plugs to the left of the fuse box that have maxi fuses in them. They are 10 amp fuses but if you’re in a pinch on the trail you should be able to put a 15 amp fuse in there temporarily. So if you’re looking for effortless turning, reduced bump steer, or want to ride trails for hours on end without your day turning into a gong show, look no further than the Can-am Defender power steering kits and replacement parts from Everything Can-Am Offroad!
