I recently purchased a used set of Crossmax XLs - the wheels are in good shape and seem to work fine, but I am on occasion (when freewheeling at speed) getting an extra loud, growling buzz from the freehub (not the usual buzz heard when freewheeling). I removed the freehub, cleaned and re-lubed the pawls, but the sound is still there. I can't seem to reproduce the sound when the bike is in the repair stand, only when riding on the trail. Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this?

Every time I hear a loud buzz from my XL, I do what you and sound is gone...clean and add mineral oil inside the pawl mechanism.

Have you checked the obvious? Axle tight? Bearing preload is adjusted properly? Bearing feels gritty and notch?
