It's 2013 scrambler 850 XP only mod is a K&N, I was at a dead stop when to go over a small rock and wouldn't engage then some black smoke came out the back as I have it a little more throttle, it's only a problem when I am under 5mph starting it stutters then after is normal

If you are doing any type of slow speed technical riding, hauling or pulling, or going through mud or similar conditions you should always be in low gear. Sounds like you have been doing low speed stuff in high gear and probable glazed the belt. Your avatar looks like you have bigger tires on it too?

Tons of tires to pick from now days. I couldn't begin to recommend one over another. Just like oil. You may want to look into a clutch kit with the new tires so you don't do that belt damage again.
