2017 Teryx 4 LE issue with Turning

I have a 2017 still under initial warranty. The problem is I have it at our place down in Puerto Penasco Mexico at the beach. When I turn all the way to the left or right at slow speeds it seems to bounce like I'm running over something. It does not do this at smaller turns and is not noticeable at higher speeds. Anyone have any idea what could be causing this?

Is there a way to unlock it that you know of?

You have to lock the diff by turning the 4wd selector on the dash to the diff lock position. When you are turning is the machine in 4wd or 2wd? If the machine is in 4wd and you turn sharply on certain surfaces you can get this type of sensation because the front and rear tires are binding up. While this is typical on pavement and hard surfaces, it can also occur in other conditions such as sand.

It is in 2wd, I only turn it to 4wd if needed and typically only while it is needed then back to 2wd.

Thinking about my reply some more, when people mention diff lock on these they are referring to the front diff being locked up. The rear diff is always locked and no way to unlock it. There is a chance that the rear diff being locked is causing this condition. I've never noticed any type of hopping or bouncing on mine, just maybe the tires squealing lightly on the pavement when turning sharp.

You are sure its not stuck in 4wd? If so maybe its a normal?
