Hello kinda new to this forum, I bought a 2009 rzr new about six months ago and I busted the front sprague which is not uncommon I put a holz racing carrier in it and still have excessive noise coming from the carrier when put under a load, four wheel drive works but seems to slip. Any answers for me and another ? anyway to eliminate the polaris diff. for something else out of another sxs? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Same thing here. Just replaced with brand new diff and same exact noise in the same exact situations. I'm sure the noise I hear and feel is coming from the diff. I also have the Holz Sprague. The sprague was undamaged when the diff let go. I did not re use the sprague on the new diff I replaced it just to be thorough.
When I blew the original diff it broke the armature which in turn ruined the ring and pinion.
The only thing I can come up with is the extreme load over comes the rollers in the sprague and forces them back into the cage.....????
I suppose this will happen to my new diff as well.
The gas cap ratcheting sound only happens under a load or when the front wheels spin freely and then suddenly get traction. I would think if this is happening with a new diff that all rzr's would do this????
Do they..... anyone?
