Hey guys. Im new to the forum and new to the prowler. I have a 2011 xtz and it has a loud rattley knock type sound. At an idle its not too bad but gets louder when i rev the engine. I have the wet clutch out of it and its a bit rusty and the drum is kinda grooved. Would that make that kind of noise? I have done some research and cant seem to find what im looking for. P.S. sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong place

Welcome to the site! These things make all kinds of noise! Knocking sounds could be several things. Internal engine noise, clutch rollers flat spotted, and so on. How does it run? Any metal filings in the oil? Drain the oil into a clean container to check for metal fragments.

Machine still works good. No metal in oil. Noise is quite loud and was not there before. Has 4000kms on it. Last time i was out, noise was getting louder and when coming to a stop clutch started jumping( almost at a stop).

Kind of sounds like it could be the one-way bearing.

1 way bearing is coming out either way. Im wondering about the wet clutch. With the bit of rust on it and the drum grooved, i don't know if its any good or if that would make a noise.

The aluminum heat shields cover bolts on the exhaust were loose and causing a loud rattle on my xtz.

Worn clutch shoe in the clutch? Since you said it grabs when moving very slow. Just a long shot guess, anyway...
From the repair manual...

INSPECTING CENTRIFUGAL CLUTCH SHOE
1. Inspect the clutch shoes for uneven wear, chips, cracks, or discoloration. If any shoe is damaged, replace the complete set.
2. Inspect the clutch shoes for wear or damage. If any shoe is worn to the bottom of the groove, replace the complete set.

Any idea on the drum? I assume it should be smooth.

My drum was grooved when I first saw it. 230miles on the prowler I assumed it was suppose to be that way. Rust concerns me, the wet clutch is bathed in oil?????

Wet clutch is oil bathed. The drum should be fairly smooth, grooves indicate replacement is needed. Any noise from a wet clutch is usually a squealing sound as it slips.
