2000 Yamaha Warrior Loud 'Clanking' from rear end

Recommended Posts

So I was getting the quads off the trailer after sitting for 3.5 months and one makes this loud 'clanking' sound from the rear end. Its a 2000 Warrior 350.

As best as I can tell, its from the axle area but I'm not 100% sure. It happens when it is rolling. It didn't do this when we put them on the trailer back in march.

Here are two videos showing the sound;



The second video shows it the best. I dont know what it is... bearings maybe? Please let me know!

Is it every revolution of the inside of the sprocket hub? Or the chain?

Neither... Its completely random. Sometimes it wont do it at all over 5 revolutions or so, othertimes it will do it constantly.

Im uploading another video now with the back tires suspended that I will post once uploaded.

yeah that's what it sounds like to me I had a artic cat dvx 400 and it was making a sound kinda like that and that's what was wrong with mine. It didn't take no tym too fix it when you pick it up and roll the ack wheels is there any slack in in the axle. If so u should be able to tell if you grab the wheel and move it back and fourth.

      Hello again guys ,. I have a Quadmaster that has a very bad lean to my passenger side wheel. I replaced the a arm bushings with no change in the lean,  I see no bent parts and no adjustments available. It's always been there since I got it but became really noticeable when I put the lift kit on it. I'm going to add a picture of the problem if allowed.

      It’s kind of ATV related question as I need new trailer tires to tow my 4 wheeler. 
      Does anybody have any experience with loadstar 12” trailer tires ? 
      There is not to many choices for trailer tires here in Ontario and I was wandering if somebody can recommend me something.

      Hi there, new owner to a Bayou 220 and could use some input from those who have owned these. At idle only, I am hearing a distinctly noticeable amount of chatter noise coming from the lower right side of the engine - right in the the clutch housing area. It's like a light clanking sound like something is loose in there. It goes away as soon as you give it throttle. Shifting in and out of gear is smooth and there is no change in the noise if you have it in or out of gear. The clutch doesn't slip at all, it's just that noise. I can also feel it when my hand is on the the clutch housing.
      I just replaced the oil and filter with 10w30 motor oil per spec. Any thoughts?

      When I push down on the rear brake pedal, it makes the left hand brake very sloppy. Is there a way to adjust that? I have a 2007 Suzuki Vinson
