look at the back of motor on the bottom, there is 2 motor mounts, you may have a broken one.

I highly recommend Chris@BenchmarkPerformance.us

If it is a slight vibration.... my guess is that it is the front drive shaft. All Rhinos vibrate from the front drive shaft. There is no fix without spending some big money. You just have to deal with it along with the loud brakes.

speaking of loud brakes
today was the first time i took my rhino in the dirt since i put my long travel kit and front brake pads in. after about 15 min. in the dirt the brakes started making a loud noise, almost like a grinding noise, atleast i think it was the brakes. i wasnt sure what it was so i came home, i tryed to drive it back and forth infront of my house having somone listen and they couldnt tell if it was brakes or what it was. it dosnt make it when i am driving, it dosnt make it when i roll to a stop with out brakes, it does do it in low, high, 4wd, neautral. it even does it if i drive slow and pull the e-brake. what is going on. i need help bad.

I have a 2005 660 and mine has the same vibration at 5-8mph.With the engine cover off it also sounds like a rod knocking except for it sounds like it is coming from the clutch are instead.
