breaking gorilla axle and cv

Has anyone had experience with the rear gorilla axles breaking. I have a 6 over mason motor sports long travel. I had put about 2000 miles on my ride prior to having John at pro shop doing a 686 kit had no problems with axles. Since the 686 kit I have broke c v on drivers side rear and just this weekend broke a axle on the passenger side rear near the c v on the tire side. I have about 2500 miles on the ride now. Any suggestions?

What were you doing when it broke, were you in 2 wheel dr or 4?
axles break when the tire looses connection with the ground and under power when it returns, like through whoops at high speed. I have broke a couple gorrillas.

was on flat desert a few whoops when it broke this past weekend. Only doing about 25 or so. Is it possible the c v locked up and broke the axle?
The c v that broke prior to this i can understand it just wore out.

it's possible, How old were the gorrillas?
I think they recently went to 300m shafts, I have one of the new ones and it
has handled my rotax pretty good. a shaft from them is about $90
