I just bought a brand new 2014 xmr 650 and took it in for it's 10 hr service hoping that would solve it but it didn't. I can wheelie in low if traction is perfect or I hit a bump than punch it. In high it barely raises the suspension with no chance of wheelies. My friend has a brute force 750 stock and can wheelie anytime in high range. I love my xmr but am very disappointed in the lack of power. If anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears

Its all in the clutches, the Brute force has much less power than your machine. Down low the brute feels stronger simply because of clutch design. The Brute does not use a 1 way bearing for a engine brake where Canam does, this gives the Brute a much lower starting ratio. In order for you to see that kind of "off the line" you would have to swap out clutches. My wife has a 13 Xmr 650 with 31" OL1's, CvTech primary and the secondary from my 1000 with a Dalton Blk/Yellow spring. Hers will wheelie with ease in low but not so much in high. CvTech, Team industries, Stm, and Qsc are all great primarys. The Stm is second to none in the secondary. I had Russell Coker do the tuning on our clutches and they are amazing. With that said it is well worth spending the few extra bucks to get quality tuning.

Don't be mad bud i got the 800 xmr and its the same thing. It wont pull a wheelie to save its life in high but in low it will stand straight up. My old 05 brute would wheelie at 25mph if i punched it. So im saving the 820 bucks up for the QSC primary. I haven't decided if i will go with a secondary simply because i don't think i will need it for what im doing with my bike but to each is own. But if you are going to do any clutching i wouldn't waist your time or money on a clutch kit i would just wait until you can get a full aftermarket primary.
