Break Squeal at dead stop

I have a problem it doesn't happen all the time mostly after I've been driving for a while.
While sitting still with the motor running and my foot on the brake, the teryk starts making a high pitched squeal. It isn't like the squeal or chirp from the belt. Once I take my foot off of the brake it goes away. Does anyone have any idea why and where this noise is coming from , I checked the brake fluid it looks fine. It seems to only happen when I try to talk to someone, go figure!

Have you had your belt adjusted?

Sounds like it could be too tight.

Yeah, I'd have to agree with dieselpowered. There really isnt anything in the break system that would squeal at a stop. Does the squeal go away if you put in neutral? My guess would be the belt, but who knows. Could be some kind of weird problem.

I am not to up on the braking system but doesn't the Teryx have an engine brake that works with the belt to keep tension on it so it doesn't disengage the belt/clutches so you have engine braking on hill decents, etc... Just a thought but maybe it is doing something to related to a brake signal to turn this on and off???

Yes it has engine breaking and your right it could be in that system, I,ve just never seen that happen. The group that I ride with there are about 6 Prairies and 3 Brute forces and we've not run into that. My best friend runs a Motorcycle repair shop I'll ask him about it and get back on what he says. He's had 2 Prairies and now rides a Brute force.

Mine does the same thing... The noise is so loud it actually hurts my ears. It doesn't do it all the time, just once and a while.

Aside from having the dealer check it out, I am going to have to go by my initial idea that the belt is too tight. Am I 100% sure, no, but from what I have read, it kinda points to that.

Have'nt been able to get a hold of my friend yet, but I dug the manual out and looked again ( you would think as many times that I've changed springs,weights and belts that I would'nt forget, Duh!) Anyway the engine brake is just a Actuator that slows down the motor by rubbing the converter. It has some kind of nylon on it, maybe that has come off and you are getting metal to metal contact? I'm really not sure, I guess bottom line you'll have to open it up and take a look. Good time to go ahead and check belt deflection and reshim if nessary. If I find anything else out I will repost, Good luck!
