2010 Teryx Clutch/Belt issues

Hi All! Need some help with a 2010 Teryx.

I'm coming off a Rhino, so I'm getting use to the Teryx. Is it normal for the clutch to grab in 2WD/High as soon as you let off the gas?

Even on a flat surface, it feels as if you've kicked it into low, even get some belt squeal once you stop/idle. I have added Bighorns, but kept them at 26" to not over-stress the axles or the clutch.

I've heard there may be some issues with the clutch on the 2010, but can't find anything definitive.

Any thoughts?

They do slow down rather quickly once you let off the gas but I've never heard any belt squeal on mine.

During aggressive riding I hear belt squeal on decel for just a second, more like a chirp or bark.

Under 5 mph the electric brake is going to take over and it is fairly aggressive.

All of which I would say is normal for this vehicle
