I have a 04' rhino and Going down steep rocky hills, when you apply the brake,it makes a loud terrible screachy noise. Engine braking is smooth and it only does it on steep rocky down hills. I have no ida what it might be. Any suggestions or experience owuld be appreciated.

Cannot speak for the 04 but my 06-660 did exactly the same and the stopping noise was rediculous. I just did a brake conversion from the shaft brake to dual rear disc brakes. AWESOME.. I bought some 09 takeoffs from the knuckles out and it went on flawlessly and work perfectly.. NO MORE NOISE.. You should be able to do the upgrade for a few hundred bucks if you shop around.

Appreciate it ,i figured it was somethin along the lines of that. wanted to make sure it wasnt somethin too bad. Was that conversion easy? Our grizzlys got 4 wheel disc and its amazing.

Its a pretty easy conversion, all bolt on... But finding the parts needed used can be hard, and its about $700 to buy all the parts new through Yamaha.. I just replace my pads often. It starts doing it to me every time I forget to take the parking break off and drive for a while before realizing. Its happened twice on my 06 and once on my 05.

It's noisy, but I'm used to it. It still stops. :)

If you want to confirm that's what it is (it is, but some people are curious), you can spray wd40 on the rear disc and the sound goes away. Until the wd burns off - then the sound is back!

Yeah yeah, it's ''dumb" to spray wd on your brakes, but it's an easy way to confirm.

My conversion was a little over 350.00. It was a take off from an 09 with a couple miles on it and it was pretty much plug and play so to speak. The guy I purchased from was super to work with as are most on this forum.
