Noisy clutch. New 2018 ZR 9000

Just picked up the sled Saturday the 23rd. Upon going over the sled with the dealer after paperwork for purchase, I noticed a rattle while it was idling but didn’t think much of it. When I got the sled home, started it and backed it off the trailer, i took the clutch side cover off and and it sounds like that primary has got a rattle to it and gets worse with more RPM. I love snowmobiling but don’t know the mechanics all to well, that’s why I bought new with an extended warranty. Should this rattle be of concern?

Harmonics of the engines idle speed range characteristics tend to make some 4 stroke engine sleds have excess primary noises.

Edit: Be forewarned, it will become worse as miles begin to pile up.

Who, me?! Don't listen to me.... (I don't know anything, evidently...)

The 7000 and 9000 should have the same harmonics/ firing pulses? Both 3 cylinder yamaha engines.

My eyes have been giving me some bad vision lately (on net too much Iím thinking), the 8 in 2018 appeared to me at that time to be a 6, making me read as a 2016 MY sled.

Rusty don't feel bad buddy; looked at the wife the other day and thought saw this instead

Owning a Thundercat is like having a totally hot wife..... All of your friends want to see it, feel it and check it out..... They all want to know what it is like to ride it, but if they only knew how much time and money it takes to keep one up, they would call you a fool!

Seen in a DOO forum

"Of all the 850 vs Sidewinders/Thundercat/ZR 9000's; you are the first I have ever heard that beat one. I know the 850 is strong but it's down 30 hp from the turbo sleds.
I have a low slung fully built( by a well know engine builder) 3 cylinder 800 cc that made multiple dyno pulls over 200 hp on a calibrated Land and Sea dyno and I barely pull my buddy on his stock Thundercat. And I do have video."

Things on NASA headphones that are not good;
"That supposed to be like that?" "What the hell was that?" "Did you just pee in your spacesuit"
