So while riding a few weeks back i noticed a periodic popping noise coming from below me. After a glance and a listen i am suspecting it is my U-joint. This noise only happens when I'm riding slow and only every so often. Im pretty confident it is not my rear diff but I'm not 100% sure. Any thoughts or experiences??

You’d usually get a vibration at speed with a UJ. Front CV’s feel like it’s below you, you do get a ‘popping’ sensation up at the bars as well though.

its a 420 rancher I'm not sure the model but its a manual shift 4x4 and I'm not sure how many hours hrs either because i don't have a display on it, i know its not my CV shafts though because i recently changed them do to them breaking. Its either one of my drive shafts or my rear diff I'm just not sure what, i hope its not my the diff but I'm pretty sure its one of the drive shafts i just need to know if someone has experienced the same problem to give a bit of incite.

Get it up in the air on axle stands or a lift and see if you can diagnose it that way.
