Lately there seems to be a clicking sound coming from under the seat when riding? Is this normal? What could it be?

sounds like a bad bearing... SEG will prolly have a better idea though... he'll prolly want to know what kind of sled is it and what year. sounds pretty obvious to me though.

Do like I said above and see if it still does it. If it stops when it's off the ground, then try to estimate where abouts it's coming from.

those clicking noises can be a real pain in the butt to diagnois. like the guys said it could be as major as a bearing, or as minor as some ice chunks stuck/frozen up under the tunnel. I have had similar experiences, but found it to be just ice. I would thaw your sled out, then next ride see if the noise is still around.

Yeah, my friends z370 makes a grinding/clicking noise, but it turns out its the track hitting the top of the tunnel. But it could be something different for you.

Check the bearings for your track sprocket driveshaft. Had the same problem on a '99 ZL 600. Solution requires that the entire track & suspension assembly be removed to replace these bearings.
