I have a 2006 prairie 360 2×4 and whenever you put it in gear, (forward or reverse) you have to rev it up alot before the clutch finally engages, but when it does, it's sudden, not gradual. Anyone know what parts could be causing this?

Is this new-to-you?
If yes. it could have a high stall aftermarket spring installed.
The belt could be really worn.
More likely, the clutch is worn out. The 360's had a reputation of beating clutches to death.

Check the primary clutch for wear/sticking.

You might have a bad secondary clutch the one behind the front one if the back one is holding, your bike won’t go forward until your front clutch collapses enough to hit the belt causing a hard jolt or secondly your primary bike be sticking take the cover off put your bike on a jack stand and put it in drive with the belt off and your primary clutch movements should be smooth not notchy all fluid motion

The primary clutch has to move in order to contact the belt so the machine can move, the secondary clutch doesn't have to open until the ATV is actually moving.
