My honda hrx217 kvka with the smart drive system (the one with the thumb controls) is having trouble getting full power to the wheels. i replaced the cable and still having touble. i adjusted it and it will run fine on pavement but once you get to grass it just doesnt want to go. Anyone have any tips or website that has a service manual that you can view online without paying for it.

Pretty simple set up. Can you see if the axle keeps turning when the wheels stop. Could just have sticking keys in the wheel ratchets.
