Cool New to forum...not AC machines...

Hey all!

I'll start off by stating that I'm NOT a prowler owner, but do have 3 AC quads. I'm also a super-admin over on A-Chat.

I just took a position at the NEW AC dealer here in Minot ND. as the Assistant Operations Manager. Basically the "guy who does it all" at the moment. That INCLUDES teching these machines.

I have an excellent understanding and ability to fix the quad side of AC and am familliar with much of the maintenance history on '06 & up machines.

What I am lacking though is PROWLER knowledge/quirks/common issues etc.

So yes I'm "fishing" for as much info to aid in my service dept. to better serve my customers. Nothing wrong wioth AC tech support, but I admit I don't always get the answers I need.

Any help is appreciated, and I look forward to offering/sharing any info/insight I happen to come by.

Thanks
Brad

REAR DRIVE LINE BRAKE CHATTER!!!! Alot of issues around that and not really any clear "this fixes it" solutions yet! From what I've seen that's the most common issue among Prowler owners. Just my 2 cents..

Welcome to the forum.
A rotor that is out of radial runout spec causes the chatter!

Yeah.. I read through that thread and thought some said there's was still doing it? I replaced my rotor and pads and it still did it. Maybe I missed something.. my bad. I was just mainly letting him know cause from what I've read 98% of Prowler owners have that problem. So that way if someone asks him about it he can read what all of us have already been through.

I replaced my rotor and pads and mine still has the noise. But I did measure the radial runout and I was a little out (but haven't 100% confirmed whether it is all in the rotor, mounting flange, or both). But I have also searched several forums where people have replaced rotors and pads that still had the same issue. So if it is primarily the rotor, then AC has a quality control issue. All I know is that it sucks throwing away over $90 and still having the problem.... Just a setup that is super sensitive with the brake on the driveline.

The Rhino's have the same issues when they have a warped rotor. The Teryx has a drive line rear brake also. It is a internal wet brake style but from what I have read they have no issues. Think about it how true can you make a rotor when you stamp it out? Notice AC went to a machined rotor! The main question I have is other guys on other forums having the same issue, did they measure run out? Was the new rotor ok? For the money I would have a machine shop make one out of stainless/machined and move on. Thats' my 2 cents or check your new one before using it so you can take it back if it's warped.
