Default Vibration help

I've noticed that I've been getting an on-off cyclic type vibration at about mid throttle while driving my 2008 G29. I decided to jack the rear end up and remove the seat so that I could have a look while the motor is running. I'm 99% sure the vibration is coming from the drive belt as I see it moving up and down and vibrating while at mid throttle, below or above this rpm the belt settles down and the cart smooths out. I just bought the cart from a dealer and all belts and filters were changed so the belt is new. Is this normal?

A common source of vibration on Drive is cracked shroud on muffler. May not be easily visible, but you could run it while applying some pressure to shroud with broom handle to see if you can affect the sound (dont wanna touch it, its gonna get hot).

Check the sheaves the belt runs on, are they worn into badly or wobbling or loose, etc. New belt will be sticky for a while but never seen vibration from it. Also check the belt for cracks or damage in case something got in the belt while running such as a stick/etc. Could also look for a motor mount problem but less likely.
