clutch question

my 2015 570SP doesn't engage the clutch until about 2000-2100 rpm, and then it's kinda jumpy and NOT smooth transition

is this normal?

I am on the fence about a spring(s) upgrade, so the answers here will solve that question

thanks in advance

You should have a clutch kit for those heavy tires anyways.

Grab a QSC from rvs performance

Yeah I think those tires are making your belt slip until they engage at that high rpm.

Agreed, just like a torque convertor in a car lossening up/slipping more if you install different gears or larger than stock tires

I have a new 2016 570 and my bro has a 2013 850 xp. His is smooth acceleration and mine is more like you said jumpy.

Recently installed a QSC kit from the official site quadshopcustoms.com

My acceleration is now smooth as butter. It still has high engagement but its not jumpy about it. It really made a huge difference.

Probably where the hoses hook up to it. When I did my snorkel kit I noticed the factory tightening wasnt much. If its not thay its the rear seal, no issues with my rear seal and I go as deep as the storage lid.

The rear cover can leak in two spots. Behind the primary there is a rubber seal/cover to the engine held on by a band tie that can leak, and the rear behind the secondary doesn't seal really well at the transmission.
On my buddy's 570, we used some rubber gasket/sealant at the front and used a larger band tie. On the rear, we just used silicone to seal it to the transmission.
