I have a clunking noise coming from the rear end. Could it be the sealed rear brake? Has anyone else experenced this noise. I am coming off a 09 grizzly 700, never noticed this noise on it. It also had 4 wheel disc brakes.

It seems I have heard of brake noise in this style of brake somewhere, but I don't know if it was a service tech at the dealer when I bought my machine or somewhere else.

Can you pinpoint the noise coming from the sealed brake ? Does the noise change or goes away when you apply the rear brake?

Did you lifted the rear end and check the CV joints and the wheel bearings? Those are the usual culprits in "clunking" noises.And check for debris -sticks and the likes
I didn't experience nor I heard reports of any noise or problems with the rear sealed brake.My only complain is the lack of "bite" when you use it, it's a soft stop instead of locking the wheels up.

I checked cv and wheel bearings, seem fine. The noise is not consistent, i notice it when first taking off or backing up. Just turned 140 miles. I'll keep an eye on it and report if i find something. Overall i love this better than my 09 grizzly 700. Lower to the ground = better handling. Also i bought the thicker 16 grizzly seat, more comfort. Plus its quieter than the 09 which i like very much!

I think for that reason and some others the Grizzly was used a lot in comparisons.

My repair manual says to leave the assembly to the factory.

Here are a couple of pages from the manual. The pinion gear assembly is on the top left of the one page.

Mine makes some noise coming from somewhere in/near the rear end too. It consistently happens whenever I jump it or it can randomly happen when switching from drive to reverse. When I jump it, it sounds like there is play in the driveshaft and it is loading/unloading (back and fourth play.) It is kind of strange to me and since it only consistently happens while jumping it is really hard to diagnose.
