It's generated from the rear brake being applied. Noise you hear is the drive train bouncing around, it's like ABS. Some members have found a warped rotors, bad pads. Arctic Cat offers a anti rattle spring kit that helps.

I never had this problem until I had worn pads and thought my rotor was warped. So I replaced rotor and installed pads. Then the famous noise starts. Installed anti rattle springs and it helped some, installed a piece of rubber hose under spings to make more tension and it really helped out. It seems the problem is finding a brake pad that can handle the heat and mate well with the rotor. It needs a good smooth pad pressure not a stop and go grabbing affect.

I am sure more members will reply to this and help out. We have talked a lot about this in other threads.

so its nothing to do with the tranny? I did replace the pads in the rear and the noise is still there. It also makes a rattle sound once it gets wet even when I'm not pressing the brakes. I saw the anti rattle kit but it says was for only 07 and newer models

Typically its always related to the rear brake assembly. I know the sound your talking about it sounds like the motor and rear trans are coming apart. What type of pads did you buy? AC had a tech bulletin out saying they went to a softer pad and some said it did not work. The Rhino's have this noise bad.

just stock oem ones from the arctic cat shop up here in Alaska.
do you know if the 2007 rotor fits on the 2006. for some reason the 06 rotors cost $108 and the 07 ones just cost $25 at the arctic cat shop up here.

when you say installed rubber hose under springs? what do you mean by that?

I wish we could install that rotor but it the part number is different and the rotor is cut different. Darn AC it's a big price jump.

What I mean by the rubber under the spring, is once you install the springs like the kit shows. Then cut a piece of rubber hose 3/8" OD about 2" long and slide under springs, causing the springs lay over the hose.

thanks for all the info. i'll get the springs tomorrow and that should help the chatter when i'm rolling. about the chatter once i press the brakes i'll try the new rotor and new pads again and see if that helps.

You said you installed a new rotor right? I would buy some EBC pads members seem to really like them. It seems like the pads rattle to much on the mounting pins and the springs help. EBC pads seem to mate better with the rotor.
