popping noise from rear end solved

I read a post on here about 3 months ago about someone having a popping noise from the rear end. My 09 Rhino made the same noise. The advise on here was to have the dealer re-torque the rear differential bracket bolts to 75 Lbs. So I printed the thread off and took it to my dealer. After test driving the Rhino they heard what I was talking about so they called Yamaha and they were advised to re-torque the bolts to 65Lbs. They did it and this cured the problem. But Yamaha also said if that didn't stop the niose they would send them larger bolts to install. My dealer also did this and all under warrrenty. I just wanted to put in a plug for Yamaha of Stillwater (OK) They have been nothing but super to deal with!

Thanks for sharing... sounds like another good reason to install a traillogic.com rear diff support.

Mine pops (sounds like the left rear tire) when I back up only. You can tell it is coming from the diff. I thought maybe I had a CV about to go bad.

Which Diff bolts? I need to torque mine and see if that works. No more warranty on my 08.

Same thing happend to me every time I tried backing up on hills or if seating still and get on the gas hard you could hear a loud pop in the rear of the rhino. Took mine in to the dealer and they put larger bolts in and re-torqued them tighter than the stock bolts. Since then problem is gone works great.

Mine sounded more like it was coming from the frame work in the rear somewhere than in the differential. It did it more in reverse than forward especially when backing up in sandy ground or under load. I didn't know what it was till I read about it on here. Anyway its gone now. Good luck.

Anyone have pictures of which bolts you are talking about would be much appreciated! Thanks

I torqued the **** out of the top 2 bolts on the diff on my 08. No change.

I had the same problem. Tried the trail armor bracket but did not help the situation. First thing I noticed was when the rear diff bolts were loosened the amount of slack in the holes where the mounting bolts go seemed like a lot. I bought some bigger bolts to replace the factory ones. Had to ream out about a 1/16 inch in the holes of the rear end, but it made it much more secure. I then bought another rear diff support bracket. I can't remember where I bought it, but I know blackrhinoperformance has one. Have not heard the popping noise again!

grab your axles and push and pull(front to back, not side to side) on them and see if there is movement - if there is movement, you may have fried the baskets on the cv.
good luck

Good advice! First thing I did on my Rhino before it even left the garage (that and a front one).

I have a nice rear diff support but I bought the wrong one. mine fits 04-07 rhinos not 08 so I need to get the right one. Mine is made by Yotagear.com. It looks just like the one from black rhino performance..
