it is probably the rear brakes.
put your foot on the brakes and see if the rattle stops.
if it is, you can adjust the slop out with an allen wrench, just don't make them too tight.

also make sure it isnt the OS bar clip.

when mine was stock it had a exhaust shield vibration at about 2500 rpm.
i took the exhaust shields off and it still had the rattlein sound, i was told that the exhuste heat shields might be the problem but it must be somethin else

take your seats out, remove the plastic access panel, put rzr in neutral and give gas to acheive rattle..while rattling grab hold of shaft and see if the rattle goes away. I'm experiencing this issue now. Going to dealer to see what can be done.

It sounds like he said his drive line was making his noise....side note their is a grease zero on driveline. Lack of lube could make noise....

I have the same noise. on the same yr & model Thanks for the possible clues. How about the free wheeling while descending long downhill grades? any way to keep the clutch engaged with low rpm's?

2011 RZR4 with 250 miles with all the services up to date. Greased regularly. The Drive line raddle just started this weekend. I have been trying to find the raddle for 2 days. Checked belt it is good with normal noise in that area in park.
The noise starts at about 10MPH on all surfaces and as we go faster the noise gets louder. Checked and greased drive shaft okay.
Any idea on what to try next or buy 4 packs of ear plugs LOL.

RPM related. As the RPM go up it gets louder. The noise starts at about 10 MPH pulling out slowly or moderate speed. The noise does not stop until you stop. One of the post I read said they put RVT in the splines of the U joints. I took the skid plates off and greased all the fitting we will ride tomorrow to see if that helps with the noise.
Not sure if I would try the RVT.
Any other thoughts of what to try would be great!
Thanks

Has anyone found a solution to this rattling problem? mines an 11 s and its had a vibration/rattling noise since day 1. i thought it was normal until i rode a differant one at the dealer, that one was nice and quiet. almost sounds like rattely exhaust srings or something.
