Our Z 5000 had the right rear wheel lock up after stopping momentarly I was able to " break " it loose by hand only to have it lock up after stopping again it turns & drives normally as long as you don't stop
the dealer wants 60.00 $ an hour to diagnose & won't guess at how long or much it will take or when he will get to it (not customer oriented I guess ) & I am afraid that ticked me off
Any Ideas ?

Welcome to the forum Jeff!

The first thing that comes to my mind is the parking brakes. I don't know if your ZTR would have any parking brakes besides the Hydro cutoff valve, but if it does have band brakes at the wheels I would definitely check to insure that the band is released. I would also recommend that you check the level of the hydro fluid in the reservoir; if it is seriously low it is possible that your hydro motor on that side has locked up.
