I am going to be using my Pioneer 520 mostly on pavement, so thinking an open rear diff or limited slip would work better than the OEM "spool" for the rear differential

Any way to do this?

I have experience with differentials, and have changed the ring and pinion in my 4x4 truck to a different ratio as well as adding an eLocker, so the mechanical work is not an issue, just wondering how to go about this.

Or... does the relatively narrow track of 50" on the 500/520 mean that the locked rear differential is not an issue even on pavement.

Somewhere I read that it was done, and then changed back right away.
The torque caused the machine to lurch one way when accelerating, and then lurch the other way when decelerating. Just not enough mass/weight and width to be safely driven.

Have a good day

Thanks, that is very useful information. I had a Yamaha 350 Terrapro ATV/Utility, and it did seem more stable at higher speed with the rear differential locked, but would also turn a much tighter radius when mowing with the differential open.
