I have a 98 650H1 and just bought a used 700XTX with 82 hours on it. The 700 jerks when you put it in gear and then at slow speeds it will buck. When you take your fot off the gas it is like you touched the brake then when you depress the gas pedal just abit it accelerates so you let up on the gas pedal and it like brakes again and it keeps doing this. It is a bear trying to put on a trailer and it does it both in foward and reverse. It does seem to do it less if I put it in 4WD. The Artic Cat dealer here do not work much on Prowlers and I have called 4 of them in the surrounding area and have received 4 different answers 1. its normal 2. its the rear end 3. its me and 4. they don't know. My wife will not ride it anymore. My 2008 doesn't do this. Please help. I called Artic Cat and they said "CALL THE DEALER" great customer service THANK YOU
It sounds like you are feeling one of the downfalls of the rear turf saver dif, there are a couple of options for you a stiffer gas pedal spring(thats what I did) or the fix you can order from you dealer its kit that has a new cable and pedal spring about 45 bucks.
