If anyone else is experiencing a chirping noise coming from the motor area here is how I fixed mine.

Mine had been doing it since new and happened when the motor was a little above an idle it would go away when I stepped on it. I looked high and low for what was causing it and decided it had to be the rubber motor mounts. I sprayed them with Duralube spray as best I could and the noise went away 75%. I took it for a drive and it went away 100%.

There are 3 rubber mounts 2 on the sides and one at the back that isolate the engine sub-frame from the main chassis. You can access the ones on the sides by removing the front seat and lifting the rubber dust shields. The one at the back you need to get from the back.



This is a picture of one of the side mounts looking down from the top. The rubber is underneath and a little hard to get a good spray on, so a smaller can of your favorite lube would work best. If mine comes back I might try graphite spray.

I don't know about anyone else but a squeak will drive me crazy until I find it. I could be the only one with this problem, but thought I would post this so others could save time finding it if they do.

It is so much nicer to drive without that squeak!:) I keep liking this Pioneer more and more the longer I own it.

I haven't really heard many squeaks from mine, my door rattles if you shake it so I adjusted then it started squeaking while driving so I loosen the door back up to rattle and I don't hear it anymore no rattle driving anymore

The cross bar on the front of my ROPS has a piece of slag in it or something, when I round a turn at slow speed you can hear it roll from one side to the other. I think I'm going to drill a hole in it, fill it with black silicone and go around a turn until it gets caught up in the silicone.

I had to spray lube mine a couple times but the squeek doesn't seem to be coming back anymore. Funny most machines get more squeeks over time, these seem to get less.

Don't confuse this with the rattling doors a lot of people experience, the doors have more of a rattle than a chirping squeek.

Hi Dick and everyone. I have the same squeak you are describing; however, mine tends to squeak right when I first start and the engine revs slightly above idle, then it gets squeaking pretty good when the engine is under a load. Its rediculously annoying. I have sprayed PTFE lube on all the rubber motor mounts, I've tightened the hose clamps on the heat shields around the exhaust. I've tightended various other bolts and still the squeak. Am I using the wrong lube on the motor mounts? Its a 2021 Pioneer 700-4, brand new, only put a couple hundred miles on it this summer. Now sitting in the garage and time to fix the squeak. Any advice?

Did you find the culprit? Mine is doing the exact same thing, especially under load ....had it about 3 months now.

Howdy and welcome,
.
The 2 people that posted before you have not been on since they posted in Nov2021.
And they responded to a post from 2014.
.
Doing a little digging, I found....
Some users had heat shields loose that cause a squeak, and others had loose door stops.
Where the doors and bed latches catch the striker.
I have read where they wrap electrical tape around striker and it helps.
and WOW another user says his front brake pads last around 600-700 miles.
So, check the brake fluid. If the level is low, you could need brakes.
.
Hope that help,
Have a good day
