Knocking / rattle at idle CVT? HELP?

Ok, New to the teryx I just bought a left over 08 everthing seems fine but after a couple miles on it I notice a knocking type noise from the engine area all fluids OK it goes away a little above idle and while driving I am guessing its the CVT clutch rattling? Normal? Any help would be great. Thanks.

OH yea got mine for $7200 OTD for the standard green model.

Hard to say for sure but the CVT does make a rattle sound.

Yeah its the primary clutch... When you start getting noises above idle is when you start having problems.
