Hey everyone. Bought a brand new 2011 rzr LE today. Took it out to get some miles on it and found that everytime I would get slowed down while either braking or not, the thing let's out a squealing/metal on metal type sound. I was also getting a strange smell, but attributed it to the fact the thing is brand new and needed to be worked in. The best I could tell it was coming from the right rear. I did a search and found everything from clutch issues to belt issues and brake pads. I'm not a mechanic and don't have great troubleshooting skills. Is this sound normal or would you guys/gals suggest taking it back in to get looked at? The sound is very annoying and having a brand new machine that sounds like that is irritating. Most of the threads i read were 2008-2009-S models having some noise issues. The thing ran great otherwise. Acceleration was good and no noises other than slow speed braking or engine braking. Thoughts?
