Sorry i am not familiar with the late models but it sounds like your going to need to strip down the primary somethings failed on the main shaft maybe a keyway or spline one way clutch did you notice any lose of engine braking when your off the gas
i am sure someone with more knowledge will be a long soon hang in there.

There were 41 Sportsman models - which one do you have?

My guess is the primary clutch is loose on the crankshaft - remove it, clean the crankshaft and the inside bore of the clutch, install and torque.
