Angry 2020 KRX 1000 Driveshaft

Has anyone broke a driveshaft yet? I managed to break mine while riding average terrain. It does seem odd to me that the driveshaft would break before the axles.

Storm king it wasn’t an axle. It was the driveshaft from rear diff to front diff.

Nothing damaged at all. Just the shaft. Clean break just in front of the spline going into the rear drive.

Did the dealer have a look at this, and was it covered under warranty? Any explanation for this?

So you broke 3 of them already, have they all broke in the same spot? Curious what you come up with. Are you doing it yourself? Please follow up so we can all learn.

Sure wish you would give us more info. Like was it stock wheels and tires, or bigger aftermarket stuff? And was it in low or high, and 4 wheel drive and diff lock or not, and what type of terrain? Seems if you broke 3 in 4 months you have been more than trail riding. What else have you broke on your krx? And a picture of the 3 broken drive shafts lined up would help give your statement some credibility. Just like to know more about this is all.
