    No need to mess with gears , other than remove them. If the 500 locker will be the same as the Can-Am locker (I assume it will be) all you need to do is remove the 2 side gears and 2 pinion gears and install the locker in place of the gears.

    That 3d model could just be the one they made for Can-Am and sent the pic to you just to shut us all up for awhile. Lol

    I'm in. A locker and those walker Evans would be awesome! Can't wait.
    Prototypes are a huge cost to make. They are investing $$$ in our interest.

    I would do it for you, or any of the other guys too. But seriously, I think it'll be more involved removing and reinstalling the differential, than installing the locker in the diff. It really will be a fairly simple install, nothing to be scared of.;) Once I get mine installed, I'll have a good idea as to time involved, but I doubt it would take more than an hour for just the actual locker install to disassemble the diff, clean, install locker, and reassemble. I would expect that the whole job will take about 4-5 hours start to finish for most of us. For the guys that do this type of thing often, probably knock it out in the 3 hour area.

    Count me in...as long as I can engage it from behind the steering wheel! Many years ago, someone was selling an inexpensive mechanical locker device for the Honda 350 Rancher TRX350. Would that be possible on the P500?

    This is like a Detroit locker in a muscle car, you don't engage or disengage it, it's always ready in the event of a wheel spin.

    Yes and no. It only works if the 4wd/2wd lever is in the 4wd position.

    I think High Lifter has been selling this style of locker for years (AKA-lunchbox locker) for older Honda's. There was also a guy who went by Dirty Howie (in Canada, i think) who sold one, but if i recall, his was really just a spool, which would be undesirable for anything but hard core mud guys who ride nothing else. Haven't heard of him in years.

    Question for the guys with the power steering already on their rigs. Can you "disconnect" the power aspect of it and give guys without a review of the brutality the locker is without it after putting one on? Only reason i ask is that i am one of the few without it still as i havent felt the need in my riding, and i also dont use the 4wd all the time either. So if a guy only had to deal with the locker when in 4wd, would it be bearable without the power steering? I figure best way to find out might be if someone can compare it literally side by side on the same machine, without the interruption of stopping to install the pwr steering and ride it another day or week later...just a thought.

    It is a ratcheting locker. Which is basically a limited slip. It won’t affect turning from what the description said...

    That much i get, i know i saw someone else say something about the idea of running it without pwr steering too. Just wondering if it is really going to be that awful without it or not if a guy only has to deal with it when using the 4wd as needed and not consistently. I know some guys like to keep their rigs in 4wd but i generally only use it when i suspect i will not be able to get by in 2wd
