Clicking in rear?

I have a 08 Sportsman 500 EFI and have been having trouble with the rear end making a loud clicking noise when I make left turns. Its not an axle. The sound is coming from inside the center section. Has anyone had a problem like this? Any ideas on what it could be?

Clicking

I had the same issue with my 09' touring 800. The issue was a rear cv joint that was bad. It only did the clicking when turning. Luckily it was under warranty, so I can't tell you how much it was to fix. It sounds to me like it is a common problem.

The dealership that sold me my Touring 800 I have was the sixth out of 18 that were sold that had this issue.

The only guess i wouldhave its either a cv shaft...or its the lashing in the trans...I had the same noise and it ended up being the cv shaft was bad with 25 miles on the quad...Muddie49

How can you tell if its a bad cv? Everything seems ok. They dont have any play or anything. The noise seems to be coming from the center section.

I have an 08 500 efi I bought in july. Had a loud clicking when turning left. Replaced the left rear axle with an axle off of ebay(new $79). Seems to still be going strong. The original axle seemed tight with no wobble and the boots were all in tact but it sure clicked while turning.
I hope Polaris changed there supplier because im sure that the number of people who get on this forum is a small percentage of all the Polaris atvs that have been sold and I am shocked at the number of bad CV axles that I have read about on this forum alone. Most on machines that are less than a few years old and some that are just off the dealers floor.
