Hey Guys !!!
Great site and hope to be apart of it. Check out www.trackshare.com when your lookin for some ATV Entertainment. I am Administrator there with the same name so it's not hard to find me.

But Back to Topic
I have a 04 Rubicon
500 miles on it, Second Rubicon i have had . this one was Actually givin to me in replacement from Honda Canada(Customer service Waranty)for the first one i bought which was a complete lemons. It had all kinds of problems right out of the crait.
Now this one is a real good bike , totaly different then the first one i had and ther are the excact same thing.
But when the bike gets warm after a few miles of riding on a warm day
when i start to slow down
just before i stop it makes a heck of whirling sound like a bearing is spining out of control and almost a grind to a stop noise but nothing is grinding,
and some times it make the simular noise on aceleration if on loose dirt or mud where the bike needs a little more power then it would on solid ground.
I wish i could dicribe the noise better but i just can't word it, LOL
But has anyone ever experinced a loud noise like that just before stop and on acceleration.
Thanks for all your help !!
Once again i love the site !

thats just the hondamatic if you keep in es mode you wont really hear it but if you have it in automatic youll hear the gears shifting up and down.

So what was wrongwith yours that they gave you a new one? Got read "THIS SUX" under this 500 fourm. I have had nothnig but problems too.

Nope i'm not talking about the typical whine the Rubicons make which is more noticable in ESP, This noise is so loud people around you want to run for cover because there scared a small engine aircraft is about to crash on them. This is not a normal sound trust me.

Hey i'll go read your thread a bit later on THIS SUX and if it fits i'll share my story there.
