sportsman brake noise

I have a 96 sportsman 500. The brake disc that is on the right side near the rear rattles bad. The brakes work great but the noise will drive you nuts. I have been told that this was a problem on this year of polaris. But I havent heard of an easy fix to this short of buying a new brake disc? Surely there must be an easy way. thanks

Re: sportsman brake noise

not really sure about what might be wrong, but you may want to call your local polaris dealer and talk to there service dept. if they had enough problems with them that year maybe they did a recall or something? hope this helps.

Re: sportsman brake noise

I have a 96 Magnum and never had a problem with mine, but you might want to take off the pads emery cloth the rotor and pads. That may stop the noise. Good Luck!

Re: sportsman brake noise

Yes they did have that noise. This is a really easy fix though. Take the chain cover off remove the chain and sprokets to the output shaft of the tranny were the disk is. Take the caliper and pads off. Now clean the output shaft were the disk is with some 2+2 degreaser. Get some really good silcome and put some on the shaft and the disk. Let it dry then put the parts back on. That is all polaris did in 97. You may not have to take the sprokets off. You may be able to get into it with a long enough end on the silcone tube. If you need anymore help with this let me know.
