Teryx "chattering"

I might have a problem. When I take off, from a dead start, My teryx "chatters" until I start moving a little bit. When I say chatter, I mean the car shakes slightly, almost like your losing traction and regaining it rapidly. There is no wheel slip. Is this a problem with the belt deflection I hear everyone talk about, or is this a common trait with these machines? It is an 2011 with 69 miles on it. Thanks in advance, MATT

I'd start by checking your belt deflection.

Its your belt deflection, your belt is loose, if you dont wanna shell out the $ for the deflection tool you could try taking 1 shim out. Taking a shim out should get you there. Also there are some you tube videos on adjusting belt deflection. I would actually reccomend watching all 3 parts of the dalton kit install as that will give you a good idea of what your getting into to adjust belt deflection.Hope this helps.

09 monster, msd & muzzy std, dalton clutch kit and od plate (not installed yet), viper 4500 with synthetic rope, homemade alum. roof, homemade uhmw skids, homemade catch can, uni slip-on filter with billet adapter, 26.5 pitbull rockers on stock sport rims, hid's from sxs customs, oddyssey 925 with sandjunkies mount, motels full windshield, induced fab doors, 62 mph top speed on speedo

How much will a dealership charge to adjust it? How long will it take it I do it myself?

Adjust belt, watch videos and buy the tools from us of course and save yourself a bunch of money.

Also never ease on the gas, just gas on it and go.

It took me bout 3 hrs first time and now i can do it in a little over 1 if i really hussle, i would reccomend doing it yourself as the belt is a wearing part and you need to adjust or replace it from time to time, i didnt find it that hard to do

Went to a kawi dealer this morning after work. Thay basically said there is nothing wrong with the car, and that the belt is a non serviceable, non adjustable item on the rex. The belt is either good, or bad, with no in between. They also said the chatter is perfectly normal, and is nothing to worry about. So, with that being said, I'm more confused now than I ever was.

They are idiots. They should try reading the service manual.

Watch the videos I show you how to do it. There are shims in between the two halves of the secondary sheave. Normally a thick one and a thin one, you remove the one needed according to how much slack you have.

I suppose you could just put a new belt on every and not ever adjust it but it would get expensive
