I have the Maverick 1000R and it has only about 8 miles on it and that is for a reason. I have just been buzzing around the neighborhood trying to break in the belt per the owner's manual and I am getting some pretty heavy clunking either in the rear end or clutch. If I get the unit up to a modest speed and then slow down modestly to a stop and still leave it in high, when I hit the gas and not even hard, there is a noticeable bang or metal on metal sound prior to the unit starting to move. I would equate the sound to a bad automatic transmission clanking into gear or drive line slack on a pickup when you don't have good gear meshing tolerance. Anyone else having this?
