Weird clacking noise comes from rear tire upon takeoff and reverse. It's not a constant noise only during take off or a reverse.

Doesn't look like the shocks -- thinking it might be something with the clutch.

Anyone else experience this issue??

On mine, I noticed it was the rear brake. The pads used to get stuck on the rotor even after I let off the parking brake and you would hear a thud or a slight jerk. Seemed like the heat of the rotor would get the pads stuck on there and after it cooled off, the noise would happen.

More thank likely your bearings in the rear. Heard alot of guys doing donuts and messed up the bearings. Either way get it in to the dealer it should be covered.

Try searching for belt noise. many folks have had success cleaning the belt and some have used a spray of some type. IIRC, Polaris doesn't recommend belt dressing and I can't remember what spray was used by other folks.
