I have a Ranger XP 1000, 2017 4,000 miles
Recently I started getting a loud squeal, I thought I needed front brakes, but it will start a very high pitched squeal when accelerating, when running at any speed,
with the brake on or off. I suspect a drive belt, or maybe a wheeling bearing. (breaks are not dusty)
Any Ideas?

I think your correct with the belt. Can you smell burned rubber during these episodes Tom ?

Jungleman,I don't think it is a belt, No rubber smell, and it squeals even when decelerating.
I am going to check the wheel bearings in a few minutes, I ordered new ones yesterday.

Looks like it is a wheel bearing, a little grease helped a bunch and I will replace them next week. I also retorked The jetlen shaft and the warble nut Tom

i hate it when your warble nuts are loose. It makes it hard to stand up.
