last weekend I started getting the same noise that came from the rear brake on my 2007 680 Rincon on my new 2016 Rincon 680, it starts out low and as you use the rear brake it gets louder, the new bike has 550 km on it, I took it into the Honda dealer and he agrees there is a loud noise but he can't find where it is coming from, has anyone had this noise that wasn't caused by the brake? it sounds like a ratcheting noise with metal on metal and only comes when using the rear brake,



well! I got my Rincon back from the repair depot, they replaced the rear rotor they say was warped and packed one of the axle knuckle's with grease, said it did not have much in it, mileage was 550 km, I ran the bike for 4 trips, it was quiet with no chatter till about 950 km, then the clatter started coming back, a little at first and then on the 4th trip out it got very noticeable, took it back to the shop, they say they can't get it to do it just running around the yard, I pick it up tomorrow and I will run it until it is like when I first took it in, I have read comments about some clatter being normal but this is way beyond normal, I still have my 2007 680 Rincon with 11000 miles on it and it doesn't clatter at all, it did do it a couple of years ago, the same clatter but changing the rear brake pads to after market pads fixed it and it still has no clatter, but the new one is under warranty so I have to wait until they decide what the problem is. I don't want to do anything while it is under warranty but would like to have this problem gone before the warranty runs out.

Is it drum or disc on the rear of a Rincon? If drum, have you checked the drum thoroughly for cracks?

I beileve what your hearing is normal since the disk brake is mounted on the propshaft and even when you slam on the brakes all the slop in the gear set and axles has to be taken up before the wheels actually lock. Personally I HATE having the brakes mounted there for several reasons and that awful noise you describe is one of them.

I had the same issue on my Rincon 2007. It was a brake disk. It's a floating disk on my atv. I was amazed what for they put floating disk there?!?! It's like two disks in one and with some time external disk is starting to jump.

So I disassembled all the rear part, remove disk and smash the groves with steel rod.

Now it's okay. No any sounds.

I think that in this case you will have problems with axle more often than usual. Braking forces will not be compensated by second wheel. Rincon has two gearshaft in the back instead of one hard axle on trx450.

It's doable but not ideal. The Outlanders have one rear brake on the right wheel. The Renegade like I have as brakes at both wheels which I think is a better system. One could argue that having the brakes on the propshaft keeps it out of the mud/water. But on the other hand, you do get a lot of slop and noise having to brake through the driveline. Also it's worth mentioning that when you have the brakes BEFORE the axles, if you break an axle you loose braking on that side, if you break both you loose all brakes on the rear. Having the brakes on the hub means you'll always have braking power.

it's except the cases when you brake the propshaft )))))

I've read somewhere that Honda got new braking system as you have on renegade, on new rincons since 2017. But I didn't check it )

Anyway I agree that having a brake disk on the hub is much better than on one wheel in the back.
