When I try to take off it jerks really bad. Its like the clutch is in and out of engagement. it has done this since it was new and it only has 500 miles on it. it is 2008 xtx 700. Any ideas? Can someone tell me how to fix this?

Welcome to the forum. How many miles are on your machine? Is it worse in low gear? Clutch, or belt related I'd bet! These things are pretty easy to work on if you have done any mechanical work in the past. All questions are encouraged, and members will help in a flash! We are a fun group, so some of the comments are meant as jokes! Keep asking, and we will get it sorted out!

If you have it in 4 wheel drive does it take off smooth?
