Popping/slipping when taking off

I have a 2014 Polaris sportsman 850 XP H.O. Just got it. It’s got 74 hours and 460 miles on it. It sat for 3 years cause guy sucked a little water in it. I got it running and it has tons of power. Problem is, when slowly getting on the throttle, it seems the rear end jerks a bit. Like slips. Then takes off. Almost like the rear had a locker in it and both tires jerk together. There’s no button for a locker and I have no clue about the rear ends. Anyone have an idea of what to check first? Yes I’ll check fluid level. I’ve been busy rebuilding another one. But...after fluid. Any ideas? It’s my first belt driven quad. Thanks

Shouldn't have a button for a "locker". Are you referring to the AWD switch??

That jerking could be lots of things but what I would check first are; axles, belt/clutches, drive-shaft, chain tension in the tranny.

Definitely change the fluids first!!! Because if something is wrong in one of the systems diffs/tranny the fluid tells a lot!!!

Sounds like axles or axle splines stripped.

Beginning of next week I’ll change the fluids and take a look. Thank you. With only 400 miles it’s hard to believe something is too terrible messed up lol

I sure hope not. 400 miles on it. But, we’ll see. I’ll google how to fix it. I can build an engine pretty well, never had to do much with gears and stuff.
