Innocent virgin to Seasoned pro

So I took the monster out for her first run and I have to say at first I thought I bought an overpriced golf cart until I started getting into it. It handled the water quite well but I will be doing the belt snorkel very soon, it climbed like a mofo, even with the stock tires. I did however get it stuck and you probably guessed it, no winch!!!! We had to walk out and get some gear and drive in as close as we could with the truck and pack the gear in like a couple mules. All in all it was a fun day and I will post some pics up tonight.

One thing for sure is that this thing is more than likely getting an exo skeleton of some type and some decent bumpers (stay tuned for alot of fab threads for this thing), and WTH is the deal with no proper tie down locations on these things????

One question I want to throw out there for you guys is this, when I am going slow in low or down a hill in low the rear end seems to click, quite loudly. Is this normal? was something possibly not installed or adjusted correctly??? It does this in high aswell but not as distinct.

There has been alot of talk about this clanking noise. My 09 does it as well and for now I think it is just the nature of the beast and we will all have to just deal with it.

It is the KEBC clicking and rear gearlash noise being exaggerated by the KEBC. When you put in a clutch kit and OD Cover,(I recommend Dalton) you can get ride of the KEBC fork in the CVT and disconnect the power to it. Much nicer IMHO. Here is a thread on what to remove to get rid of KEBC http://www.utvfreak.com/showthread.php?t=3

Gearlash sound video from my 09 LE when it was new.

Dalton clutch kit and OD cover install video series at the link below.
