You might have a problem, I can't hear mine making any noise with the engine running. Might want to check the axle oil level if you haven't already.

it only goes away if i apply the brake. changed rear fluid and no effect. it's hard to hear over the engine, but it's just a little anoying.

Maybe something is trapped in the rear brakes between the pad and the disk? No idea why it would squeal while you aren't braking.

If this is the 700 Kodiak with the brake noise, you might want to consider a trip to a dealer for repairs under warranty.

Is it just a noise, or is it a symptom of something else? Take it to the dealer and they should be able to tell you.

I wonder if the drum shoes haven't been properly adjusted from the factory... we're they always making the noice or did it show up after something???

Squeaking brakes shouldn't be a normal occurrence. Maybe take it to the dealer to see if there's anything wrong and you should be covered by the warranty anyways.

Is it really anything more than just an issue with maybe lubricant? Probably something to try to fix but likely not a huge problem. That's my 2 cents.

Talked with my dealer. They said yammy use high metallic flake friction plates, which cause some noise.. the is no brake drum on this brake setup.. it works very similar to a wet clutch found in motorcycles, except the friction disks are engaging the brake housing the stop the spinning drive shaft, instead of engaging a transmission..

Mine seems to be quieting down a bit.. 650km on the bike now.. wet brake works great, especially in 4x4..

I notice a slight noise coming from the rear wet brake also, mainly when going slow or coasting down hill. Took it to Yamaha and they said it was normal and fluid was good. Its not a squeal or grind just a faint rubbing of the brakes internally. They have had a few complaints about it already though. I'm #6 on the list at our shop that has mentioned it.

Contacting Yamaha about it and ensuring they follow up on the case will be a good thing to do, who knows, it might be a case where they have to send someone out to investigate, someone more qualified.

As long as the weather holds out tonight the new unit is going into Yamaha tomorrow morning to get a once over for the wet brake . Ran to the mail box today and seems to be consistent now. Just a little touch of the brake makes it stops squeaking/grinding. The 05 had simulare issue but disc brake and fixed it with aftermarket pads, Not sure on this one.

Mine is the opposite. If I really slam on the back break it'll make a clunking noise at a certain rhythm. Never really questioned it though.
