VIBRATION!!!

Need some help! I recently replaced the wet clutch and belt in my 06 660 and put 26" bighorns on at the same time. Now I have a vibration at low speed that I didn't have before. pulled the cover back off and double checked everything again and it all looks right. It feels like its gonna come apart....clueless! Thanks

You are gonna have to eliminate items untill you see what is causing it.

1. does it vibrate in neutral?
if it does it's not the tires....... if not Tires?

2. remove the belt and primary sheave assy......Still got a vibration? then look into the wet clutch. Vibration go away? must be in the one of sheave assemblies.

Well I haven't removed the tires yet, but I removed the belt and primary even pulled it apart to make sure the weights were still in place. When I run it without the primary I don't notice it as much, just the normal vib from the motor. but with the belt on I feel it more in neutral but it greatly increases at about 5 to 10 mph.

Also is it possible that the new wet clutch is out of balance?

OK I put everything back together and jacked up the rear and ran it in gear, no vibration. It seems to be only when the machine is moving foward, the tires do not appear to be out of balance. Anybody got any clues or something I'm missing...

the front driveshaft vibrates at a certain rpm, I was going to make a carrier bushing thinger for mine but never got around to it, I just took the front shaft out (while the engine was out) and stretched the spring to give it more "spring rate" which puts more pressure on the shaft which helps with the vibes.
I might work out some sort of slip on bushing carrier eventually.

have somebody get in the rhino and gas it on and off as you walk next to it looking at the shaft, mine vibrates as you let off the gas at about 2 mph

LEARN TO SWIM.........

Well I found the culprit, after parking the wifes 07 (which pers like a kitten) beside it to compare the two. The only difference is mine has 1 1/2" spacers so I decided to take the off and try it. Thats when I found my front left wheel bearing had some rattle. After taking off the spacers it seem to go away. My conclusion is the bigger tires and spacers exaggerated the problem with the bearing which luckily is not a hard fix. Thanks for all the imput from you guys.

Nappahdog...nice shepherd by the way!
