My brand new XTR makes a squeak sound in multiple wheels. The sound occurs only once in a wheel revolution. It's definitely the wheels as I can reproduce the sound while pushing the vehicle in neutral.
This is my first SxS. Is this a normal sound or should I be concerned? I have under 5 miles on the machine so far.

It's so new, I wouldn't worry about any noises unless they persist after first service, probably just new brakes breaking in.

Mine is exactly the same. It’s just the brakes contacting the rotor on the same spot.

I've got the same thing going on only noticeable at a slow roll,and on a constancy of each rotation of the tires. Those breaks will run in eventually!

Lol, I knew someone that actually oiled his brakes to get rid of a squeak! It did get rid of the squeak. I highly do not recommend that you oil your brakes. Ironically, one of the biggest culprits of squeaky brakes...is dirt. And unfortunately, that is where these machines live. Noises and squeaks bother me until I figure out what the cause is. Once I know where the noise is coming from, I then evaluate and decide if I need to fix it or not. For brakes?....eventually they will wear out and you will replace them anyway. No sense in replacing them before their time.

I wear earplugs when I ride anyway. :)

My brake squeal is now gone but I still plan on pulling the wheels of to inspect that the brake sliders were greased.

I also get that from time to time and what really seems to make it go away for me is to just 2 peddle it in reverse with some hard braking. With the engine braking and trail riding I do, I am almost never even using the brakes, so a bit of water and dirt literally just sits on the rotors until you actually exercise the brakes on purpose.

I haven't done much for riding in the hills or mountains yet but the engine braking on these machines is really nice. I don't really use my brakes much.

The brakes should be taken apart and cleaned and lubed at least as often as the vehicle is serviced normally for oil changes. The brakes on these off road vehicles need regular attention to clean and lube them as well as keep a eye on remaining pad thicknesses..

Squeak of rattle? Some have had to adjust the tailgate. I'm not sure if the sound is more of squeak or rattly though. I think Massive has video in it build thread. Suspension may still be breaking in at 29hrs so you may be hearing bushings.

Normal break in sounds. Don't worry about those for the first 150 miles at least.
