RZR 900 clutch problems?

Had two friends of mine buy new RZR 900's about a week ago. They both seem to have a lot of clutch noise that sounds like the belt slapping around until they get the rpms up, is that normal? They're taking them back to the dealer to have them checked out.

The more I get into the wet clutch system, the better I like it. It has to lengthen bely life, and absorb any driveline shock.
