I have a grinding type of noise in the driveline. Its not a constant noise, it comes and goes. I have had it back to the dealer and they can not seem to find any issues. Seems to go away after riding for a bit. Seems to show up after I release parking brake and back it out of garage and just get started riding. Anyone else had isssues with this?

There's a parking brake disc, with caliper. You may have sand or crap in there .
Roll it with the engine off.
Sometimes it needs to be reseated if it was,takin apart

Yep.. sounds like brakes... my ATV does the same thing. Put it on jackstands and spin each wheel.... you might be able to find the dirty one.

Welcome to the forum Farr23!!!!! Roll it by hand in neutral with the engine off after you release the brake and see if you can hear the noise. If you ride in a lot of sand and mud its a good idea about once to twice a year take the wheels off and pull the calipers and clean them with a tooth brush.

I pull my machines down once to twice a year and do a good cleaning and lubing because of the stuff we ride in.
