Not really messing with you cause your new. You just cant over look the obvious stuff. So we have to ask questions to rule stuff out some times. Not long ago someone posted about doing a oil change. And had over filled the quad cause they didn't know to drain the reservoir! I hope this wasn't you or you will think I'm messing with the new guy.
Several things you might consider.
1) Check to see if the clutch adjustment is too tight. (Note: Owner’s Manual is very clear on that adjustment) This could cause it to be somewhat engaged under just the right circumstances.
2) If the person that owned the machine before you used the wrong oil in the engine/wet clutch it may tend to cause the clutch to stick. If the oil is unknown to you, it might be worthwhile to replace it with the correct oil (Recommended in your Owner’s Manual. Some synthetics will cause problems) I use only Honda Oil (10W-40), however there are many good oils out there for these machines..
