    I do like that honda went back to the positive rear end. I did not like the open diff on the trail.
    It looks just like a Rincon. same pads.

    Is anyone getting a significant amount of noise and or whine out of the rear end when braking? Especially when going downhill?

    I don't have one ( yet ), but i did notice some noise on braking during a test drive. This is just inherent with the shaft mounted disc systems. All the braking goes through a bunch of components en-route to the wheels, and gear lash type noises usually manifest themselves, particularly under hard braking on loose surfaces.

    That was one of the thoughts I had but I have never owned anything with the brake separated from the wheels by the diff so I have no experience to go off of, I have rebuilt enough diffs to know there has to be some play in the diff for it to function, I wonder how that is going to play into long term reliability, its Honda so I am sure they have beat the heck out of it and know its going to last.

    The dealer said that the UV joints had play in them but thats a load of crap there is nothing to be uneven enough to cause it, the brake and engine are keeping a smooth application of force on the UV joints. I checked all the fluids they are full and clear no flakes or chunks.
