Default Vibration in golf cart at certain speeds

After several miles, traveling at just under top speed, I can feel a vibration through the accelerator pedal. If I back off the speed a little it stops.

It never happens in the first few miles, or at lower speeds, so I assume something may be getting hot, expanding and rubbing.

Could it be a bearing in the motor, which is five years old?

The cart has been serviced every six months from new and nothing has been mentioned, although I doubt the service includes a run of several miles.

Thank you

I had a similar vibration, the technician replaced the drive belt and it stopped the vibration.

Thank you, HogPilot

It is being looked at tomorrow, so I'll drop that into the conversation in case it helps
