Default 2003 lt80 NO low end power!

Bike has new piston, rings, reeds, jets, DG pipe, air filter. Bike starts easy, idles smooth, really rips after its moving. however, with my 50 lb. daughter on it, it takes of slow. every thing i've read on the forums points to the clutch. Would that be the logical next step? I want the bike to run good, I'm not looking to race it. What parts should I get? I've read some use 4 rollers, some use 6? Is there a kit? and who do you recommend buying them from? I understand it can get a little pricey? Bike cost 700 plus another 400 for everything else. thanks in advance for your help.

Sounds like the secondary is "stuck" in high gear...or better said it is stuck open...easy way to tell is to remove clutch cover, get rear wheels off ground, and give it varying amounts of throttle...the primary & secondary should open/close opposite each other...I believe...more familiar with sled clutches, but should be the same in principle...
