Kawasaki mulePro fxt jerking at slow accerarion

Does anyone know what could cause this problem? Brand new 2019 ranch pro fxt with only 78 miles on it and it started jerking when taking of in high range. Is this clutch problems?

Does it do it with the drivers side seat belt connected? They have a speed limiter safety switch built in to the seat belt.

Me too. I finally installed a jumper wire in the plug to bypass it.

Yes, the seatbelt is connected. Noticed it getting worse as the ride went along. It only does it when you ease on the gas from a stop.

Does engine sound normal? Is it a certain speed and does it make pop or like a whirl type noise?

How else have you drove during those 78 miles? High speed runs for periods of time will cause pretty excessive heat build up. Potentially burning your belt up. The jumping feeling could occur when your belt begins to get small burs on the edge normally caused from excessive heat. Also running in high gear all the time is not good for belt wear. If your going to be under 15-20 mph definitely keep it in low. Above 20 then high gear. More technical side of it but rare is your clutches may be slightly out of alignment. While itís not likely thatís your problem it does happen.

Make sure the parking brake is fully released.

I tried it this morning after it cooled down and it is working normal. It has always had a slight jerk when slowly accelerating. Is that just the nature of the transmission?
