Has anyone experienced a "clanking noise" when running near full throttle in 2 wheel drive ? I have a 2510 bought new in 2000 and it has always done this..Sounds like the gears are gonna break. Slow down and it quits.. Had it back to the dealer 3 times..They say nothing wrong...
:(

Change from 4 wheel drive to 2 wheel drive

Hi, I have a 2000 gas 2510 also. I have the same problem, but it is only when I an changing from 4 wheel drive to 2 wheel drive. I have found that if I make the change and then backup 5 or 10 feet I no longer experience the problem.

Hope this helps.

My father has a 2002 2510 gas mule making what I think may be a simular noise. What we found is front drive shaft out of balance. Really no fix Kawasaki offers, but some freinds of mine built a hanger bearing to stabilize front drive shaft.temporary fix is to get a tarp strap wrap it around shaft grease it were it is touching shaft, so it can slide freely.This will let you know if a hanger bearing will work.
