i think alot of it could be that you dont have a lift. the rear suspension may be so soft its absorbing the initial shock load that usually throws you back. clutch kits tend to help out as well.
is your bike just spinning the rear tires violently? or kinda laggy off the line and just wont pick up? if your tires are just spinning away you need to figure out why, too much air pressure in the tires usually. i have ridden a few can-ams that would not wheelie very easily, and some were wheelie monsters right out of the box.
try stiffening up the rear suspension, and letting the air in your rear tires down to about 5psi. get on some good ground and just stab the throttle. if it spins like crazy and dont pick up you need to let more air out of the tires. if its just laggy you might look into a clutch kit and tune.
the only other option after those have been expelled is a different primary clutch. the STM, comet, and CVtech all have a smaller shaft diameter in the primary which lowers the initial gear ratio of the clutches, which usually gives you tons more low end. if you cant wheelie with one of those clutches installed soemthing is bad wrong cause i have taken the CVtech clutch, put it on a TIRED old stock 07 800HO with 30" mud tires that would not wheelie stock, and about flipped it over with the CVtech clutch.
