i have a 2014 Kawasaki Teryx4 LE
Has 2700 miles and 250 hours
Completely stock besides windshield and horn

When driving down the dirt road by my house or any surface and going over 30 mph up to 50 the machine has almost a pulsating vibration that gets faster as you increase speed. its not a violent vibration but certainly very noticeable.

Not sure where to start with diagnosing and dont want to just throw parts at it.

any help is appreciated.

sounds like a tire could be packed with mud or snow, maybe a bent wheel, or potentially a driveshaft really out of balance or damaged.

It sounds almost like a cellphone vibrating on a table but the vibrating gets closer together the faster you go.

I have same year/model.. my noise was the exhaust manifold cover vibrating under the frame, located under driver seat behind that black flap... a few whacks with a hammer cured it.

Check for worn or loose universal joint on drive shaft from motor to differentials. Also check and make sure all motor and differential mounts are bolted down tight.

I have a 2014 T2 and it vibrates at 30-35 MPH with a steady high to low to high hum. Pretty pronounced and really noticeable if I wear ear muffs ( hearing protection). I think when it got louder and louder at about 2000 miles, the belt broke. I was running about 32 MPH for along time. Doesn't seem right but I wondered if it was a harmonic of the whole drivetrain.

My 2019 does the same thing took it to the dealer for the 3rd time the tech tried it in neutral slowly revving it up till it started the noise and on up until it stopped . So far they have installed a new primary clutch, secondary clutch and belt , checked all exhaust shields and skid plates. Kawasaki just sent them a new clutch shaft to install thinking the runout maybe slightly off , hopefully this fixes it , I should know by next week. I would try it in neutral and do what they did to see if the noise replicates while not moving that will eliminate anything in the driveline, wheels, tires or whatnot.

I had a similar issue on my '12 T4, ended up being the rear u-joint on rear shaft was basically seized. New grease-able u-joints took care of the issue.
