Hello Artic Cat Forum

Yes I am new to the forum, I have an 08 prowler that I bought new, have had really good luck with it until recently. It has 3500 miles on mostly forest roads, I have maintained it myself. The problem I am having now is when going down hill some times I hear kind of a grinding noise from the transmission or??? I have checked and replaced the belt and it is in good shape.
Any suggestions

If I had to take a quick guess at it without more detail I would say its a good possibility its your one way bearing. does it only make this noise when coasting?

One way bearing if it happens just when coasting, and brake chatter if it is when you apply the brakes.....

I am not sure that I know what the one way bearing is. Is it easy to replace?
The terrain that I mostly ride in is mountain trials, and on some paved roads where I live. I live in the White Mountains of Arizona, at approximatly 7000 ft. I can leave my driveway an be in the forest within a half mile.

Hard to answer the degree of difficulty on inspecting/replacing one way bearing. What are your abilities? Do you have access to a impact wrench that can handle up to 200lbs of torque? Have you worked on your machine? Replacing the bearing entails draining the oil, removing primary, and secondary clutches, inner, and outer clutch covers to access the wet clutch area, one way bearing is on the wet clutch shaft. Do you have a service manual for your machine!
