Hey guys. I am also new to this forum. I have an 07 650xt and really like this machine, however, ... I have only 500 miles on it , most of these just around my house. Last week I was in WV on the outlaw trails and began hearing a noise when I would apply the brakes fairly hard. Just figure it was brake noise. It is now at the dealer and he is saying the brakes are fine. They took it apart from the rear end to the clutches and can't find the problem . They say they drove a new one and it is making the same noise. They say it is in the drive line. To me it sounds like loose metal hitting something. I thought it was the park brake, but they say no. Any ideas

Kyle

It is coming from the back. Thats why I just figured it was the rear brake or parking brake. I do not hear the noise at all when accelerating or deccelerating, only when applying the brakes fairly hard.

Just don't use the brakes? Just kidding ya. I have to be honest and tell you it will get better. If you look close you will see that arctic cat put a square hole over a round peg. In other words the pad has a square hole that goes over a round peg that holds it in place. And there is some clearance there. What is happening in my opinion is the rotor is not true. And as you apply the brakes the pads bang back and forth on the round pin. In time on mine the pads get broke in and the rotor trues up and this goes away. I have been through this twice now and it always has righted itself. I know some will say that I am crazy that the pads will true the rotor but it is true.

YES it is the rotor out of true. I"m going to put a new rotor and pads on the rear. If it does it again then ole well, I'll just take sandchris's advise and let them wear themselves true. Thanks for the help.

I have an 08 with over 2000 miles on it. The rear brake still makes that grinding noise. If its not worn true now it never will be....

You could jack it up and block it and get a hand to have someone get the rear tires going some and then apply the brakes. Get a look at where the noise is coming from. Just to verify that it is the rotor pad assembly. If you can see the rotor going all over the place than it will probably make the pads rattle. Especially cause of the square hole over the round peg.
