2021 Kodiak 700 after pulling a trailer that was probably over weight I now notice a slight grinding/bearing type noise when letting off the throttle. Seems be be more noticeable than when it was new. Maybe one way bearing?

Doesn’t seem like it would hurt pulling it - but if the trailer was pushing your machine… might have taken it out? IDK… a couple other guys know those 1-ways better than me!

First off, does your model Kodiak have diff-lock? If it does, how are you hearing this grinding noise, when out riding around during decel, or do you have the machine lifted, not running and you spin the wheels?

There is a completely normal, notchy noise that occurs from the right side of the front diff. Many think they have problems when they hear this but it is 100% normal and expected.

If your one-way is toast, you won't get resistance. Keep your machine turned off, expose your CVT and see if you can rotate the belt both ways. A properly working one-way should only allow the belt to rotate in a single direction.
