    I've found the 2019 to be smoother in taking off and not as jerky which is a nice improvement as I do backup to trailers and some hazardous materials

    I do a lot of grinding around on some rolling terrain while doing prescribed burns and try to keep my shifting down if possible

    The feeling of the machine engine braking when letting off the gas is normal, while going down a hill you will feel it engage disengage then re engage is normal but it should be semi smooth. If it starts to decelerate then stop then grab again if feels like its going to throw you through the windshield means there is a problem, the clutches on the new 1000s seem to be a weak point, what I've been seeing is that the one way bearing which is responsible for the engine braking can seize up or stick, if you are feeling what I described most likely there is an issue with your one way bearing and it needs to be replaced. With all the great modifications they did to the new 1000s the clutch seems to be the one thing they ignored. My advice pull that thing out and put a good quality drive clutch in it like an STM or similar. I've seen this exact problem with over 10 machines I ride with from Generals, Rangers and RZRs, the new Turbo S RZR's actually had a bad batch of bushings that were manufactured to small and will come loose and launch themselves around the clutch housing.
    I am convinced my side by sides are eating my money while I'm not looking. 2019 Ranger XP1000 Backcountry with Rhino 2.0 axles STM clutches and a bunch of other crap, 2019 Ranger XP1000, 2016 Ranger 900 with 7200 miles and still running strong, 2015 Sportsman 850, 2019 Sportsman 570, coming soon 2020 Can am Maverick XRS Turbo.

    Yes I'm hauling heavy loads. 50 gallon water tank with a piston pump powered by a Honda and 100 foot of 3/4 inch high pressure hose.
    The week of the 4th I was going up and down a flood control dike with the 19 1000xp without issues in both turf mode when it was dry and 4x4 when wet hauling passengers and equipment. Could feel the engine braking but not at all abrupt that we were buckling in and looking for hand holds.
