Any serious off-road enthusiast knows how important the drivetrain is to their UTV or side by side’s riding performance. The drivetrain, which is composed of many different smaller mechanical components like prop shafts and axles, is responsible for transferring torque and rotational energy from the engine all the way down to wheels and tires. Carrier bearings are the unsung hero of any UTV or side by side’s drive train, and the Can-Am Maverick is no exception. Carrier bearings are responsible for holding pieces of the drive train together. It’s an unfortunate but true fact that the Can-Am Maverick’s stock carrier bearings aren’t built to last. Because of the constant stress, pressure, and abuse that they face, stock carrier bearings can very quickly become worn-out, loose, or flat out broken. The symptoms of carrier bearing issues usually include vibrations, rattling sounds, or throttle response issues.
Drive train issues should never be ignored lest they degenerate even further.
