Any Can-Am Defender owner worth their salt understands the importance of axles when it comes to off-road riding. Axles are a key component of your Can-Am Defender’s suspension system. Having the right axles on your Can-Am Defender means you can take on more challenging terrain without worrying about breakdowns. Having the wrong axles on your Can-Am Defender means you have to ride cautiously and avoid tougher terrain. We all know the more challenging terrains are more fun! So why would you settle when it comes to your Can-Am Defender’s axles? One of the easiest ways to go further and do more with your Can-Am Defender is to upgrade its axles.
We can’t tell you how many Can-Am Defender owners come to us looking to upgrade or replace a busted stock axle. The Can-Am Defender’s stock axles are notorious for breaking down in the most inconvenient of circumstances. Good luck making it back home before dark with a snapped axle. For those who prefer to keep adrenaline levels low when riding their Can-Am Defender, a simple stock replacement axle is sufficient. As far as Can-Am Defender axles go, stock replacement axles are definitely going to be your cheapest option. Just don’t expect any upgrades in durability or off-road performance.
After busting their first axle, many Can-Am Defender owners decide they would rather invest in an upgraded aftermarket Can-Am Defender axle now rather than go through the hassle of dealing with another broken stock axle later. We applaud the foresight of these Can-Am Defender owners. That’s why we carry plenty of quality aftermarket Can-Am Defender axles from some of the most respected parts manufacturers in the UTV industry like SuperATV and HighLifter.
