The brake havent gone yet, but according to IBS they might at any time. I have in the past forgotten my parking brake was on. Well you figure out the rest. Every time I accelerate, I hear a metallic clanking from my engine. If you twist the secondary you can also hear and visually see the brake pad loose.
I was just hoping one of you skidoo guys could tell me whether I just need a brake key or to replace the whole pad. I have limited internet access, so if you have some questions on symptoms I am sure Bryan can chime in also.
Thanks in advance.

Guys, the brake rotor is loose on the jackshaft. Upon acceleration it clanks. The sound is not coming from his engine as he said, but under the hood. To the CuzzinOlaf non-wrenchers I guess "from the engine" = "under the hood somewheres".
I think it's the key between the jackshaft and rotor.

If I remember right there is a little play in the brake rotor on Ski Doos. I can't check, my sleds aren't in the garage at my place right now. I would say that in my opinion the key could be the only option. Can Harry pull the caliper so he can check it out?
Sounds like alot of play if what IBS says is right. It shouldnt be that loose. Also, im pretty sure that the brake pads kinda of hold it in there more so it doesnt flop around clinking and shit, but if the pads got wore real down it prolly has more play. Also the key is prolly wore out so id definitly check it out.
Can you see the brake pads and are they real wore down now?
I hate hearing that damn clinking noise from the brake rotor, very annoying.
well spoken Ibreak and CW, im my case i wrench cause i aint got a freakn choise, if i dont, it wont get done. I may ask for physical help, but i still do a majority of the work myself so i know how to. My ol friends 03 snopro 440 cat had a sloppy rotor, new pads fixed hte clank clank noise. not saying its rite but i worked for him In my opion Polaris is the easiest to work on and im talkin wedges, and the trip trip. im learning the diff between the piston port and reed case motors also. Not a hater, but i love the big tripps. Cant beat them. my friends twins are torquey, but they lack that pull that goes well over 100 easily all day long. Just my opion, but as long as your having fun and sleddn who really gives a fuck, lets have funnnnnnnnnnnnn
