Hello, I have just bought my first ranger, a 900 xp and right now I have 14 miles on it. Is it normal to have a little slack in it when you first give it the gas and when you put it in reverse. It seems that you have to give it a little more gas before it starts to move than I thought it should. Also when I put it in reverse, I have to do the same thing but it has a little of a clunk before it starts to move. Is this normal on a new machine and will it smooth out the more I drive it.

It's normal, The way the clutches work is with centrifugal forces to close on the belt.

Welcome to the Ranger world..totally normal! There are also a few other things that will make you a little curious, but are perfectly normal...just the nature of the beast

I tried fixing it with the EPI kit but that failed. Only thing it done was raise the engagement rpm and make it more abrupt. Maybe someone will clone the infamous Duraclutch for a lot less $$$.

The Duraclutch cures a lot of ills with old OEM Clutch which is ok until it comes to mountain trails and other extremes. I love the engine braking and seamless clutch engagement. So smooth :fat:
So true. Very nice, high, but so far worth every penny. Sucks Polaris won't use a good clutch from the get go. If you ever take off you secondary clutch you will see just how cheep they really are.
