Xp 1000 sportsman

So I replaced the belt with a g-force belt and am following the break in procedure , still not seeing much difference in snappy take off , buffed the surfaces of both clutches and cleaned all casings . I do see that the primary clutch spring is yellow . Just wondering if this is a stock spring or is this causing my problem . Previous owner has clutched it up maby ?

does your quad only do this from a dead stop ??
my scrambler is the same way since new, i had it checked under warranty, sometimes its not too bad , other times it engages violently from a dead stop.

I spoke to RVS performance a while back and he said its normal, he said their clutch kit will give a smoother engagement,

I have not installed one yet, iím still running stock size tires, iím undecided, i donít want to sacrifice top end with a clutch kit. I might try the sport utility clutch kit if i get one, i know EPI makes a sport utility kit.

I’ve still got stock tires for now , I’m toying with putting the 2” lift in it for now to get a little more height. I’m going to make sure all the ujoints are tight in the shafts and live with it for now

You might want to try a spring and weights from a 17 or 18 model. My 18 is the smoothest engaging/pulling machine I've ever been on. It appears from looking at the Polaris parts catalog that your 16 model is sort of a different odd setup as the spring/weight combo is unique to that year and may be the reason for your jerky engagement.
This is the stock setup for your machine. That combo is shared with mostly the HL, tractor and touring models and the earlier production machines.
7044279 SPRING, CLUTCH, 40-210
WEIGHT, SHIFT, 24-70, PM

Here is the setup for the 17-19 model Sportsman which is shared mostly with the Polaris RZR and Rangers. As you can see it incorporates a lighter spring and weight combo for a less harsh engagement.
7043805 SPRING-CLUTCH, 42-140
5632337 WEIGHT-SHIFT,23-62G,PM

Makes sense mines a 17 but I can bet that’s exactly what’s goin on , if I was mud bogging that’s what you want but with a big load of wood in a trailer it’s a little too much

They're easy to change right on the machine. No need to even remove the clutch.
