    Rather hard to explain, the work mode engages the clutch slower and easing on the gas makes one slip, once moving work mode is great to stop the jerkiness from your foot bouncing on throttle you may not notice you at are doing.

    Mechanically the machine seems to be fine my only very minor annoyance is that when you have either a yeti 30oz tumblr or large size cup you can’t put it in the dash cup holder near the gear shifter or every time you go to shift into high it hits n spills your drink.

    I've got a 2017 1000XP and have the exact same problem. I like the idea of, but am not financially interested in investing in Duraclutch at $1500. As such, I am considering some other clutch options from Dirty Dawg and RVS Performance that I am told can address this one issue - the jumpiness upon hitting the gas. I have noticed that I am using the Work mode more often, which is something I really don't want to do as a long term fix for reasons mentioned by Hunterworks.

    This clutch issue along with very cheap and ineffective bottom skid plate (fixed by installing a full ULMW plate) have been the major issues for me with an otherwise solid machine.

    I’ve got the bucking “bumpiness” as well with my machine. I could be wrong but I seem to recall having this with with 2011 when i first obtained it, and it gradually went away as the belt wore in?

    Hoping it will improve. Reverse is actually worse than forward gears. I’ve got nothing for 1/3 of the gas pedal travel in reverse and then she lurches like a bull breaking out of the gate. Almost drove it through the back of my garage while in performance mode...

    Just tried it all on the 18 I picked up this week.

    Shifting into high doesn’t feel like I’m forcing the shifter into gear, maybe a little more effort than low. Enough to know the difference between the gears without looking.

    You can feel the clutch engaging in reverse, but once over 2,000 rpm, 2 mph, it smooths right out.

    The work, Std & Perf setting make a big difference in throttle sensitivity.

    Alas, the middle cup holders by your shin is probably the only option for the 30oz Yetis.

    Taking mine to Wildcat Offroad Park this weekend so I figure I'm about to learn a lot more of the good and not so good qualities of the new machine.

    Are any of you getting a lot of noise from the front gearcase? I have a NS and can really hear the front gearcase when driving in 2WD it goes away when I am in 4WD.
