of course two new strange noises...
So after a 3+ week fisasco for a new fuel pump I went on a ride with my wife and two friends (they rode their older rhino). Well randomly now I have two noise that it has never made before and its hard to reproduce every time but it comes enough to make me worry.
sound 1-Hard to describe but imagine driving and then all of the sudden whether your gently driving, braking, or heavy throttle in low or high it sounds like someone it shaking a metal can of metal nuts super fast for a second or two. coming from the rear. I don't know how else to describe it but its not the clunking its the super fast scratchy sound. I don't know how else to describe it really.
Sound number 2- I was driving in high range (did not happen in low) and I was hearing a squeaking sound that my fear was the belt it seems to come from under the shifter lever but I am very good about using low range up to 20 mph/4x4 hills and using high on flat ground for 20mph+ consistently. It wasn't a belt squeak/chip like an old serpentine belt though and it was at slower speeds in high like 21-28mph when I was trying to get details.
no burnt rubber smell, no power loss or issues, no check engine lights, I checked all fluids before trip.
Sorry if I am frustrated, I just feel I did more research then necessary before dropping a good chunk of coin on a teryx4 side by side vs Rzr, Yamaha, or articcat etc. and feel I may have gotten a lemon or? I just want to address the sounds because they just started and to be honest I could TRY to record it but the in cab noise is very loud for a cell phone/camerea etc.
Any guidance greatly appreciated. I was super excited for this thing and since purchasing I have been getting a little more nervous.
2017 teryx4 with 890 miles, bought at 713 and changed front dif with kawa 80-90, rear dif with kawa wet brake fluid, and engine oil with 4.2-ish quarts of kawa 10-40 oil with hi flow filter all from rockymountain atv. about 30 miles ago new fuel pump assembly unit from Kawasaki due to fuel gauge not working (is working now). Also after every ride I gently rinse off everything, and go for a 5-10 min ride on pavement to air dry it all. Its kind of dusty now in this area and I don't do mud, just gravel rodes, old logging roads and trails etc.
