'16 Kingquad 400 struggles to get going.

Hi there, I have a 2016 kingquad 400 FSi manual. Engine starts fine but I'm having to give it quite a lot of rev to get it going, and it seems reluctant - like the clutch is slipping. Once it's moving, it seems fine, and the clutch doesn't slip when you give it power.

I've only had the bike about 6 months and it's always been like it. Previously only driven honda ATVs so thought at first this may just be different to drive, but recently been back driving father's honda and the Suzuki is hard work to drive in camparision, constantly having to shift down. The bike rolls along easily - I can easily push it.

Is there anyway the clutch can be adjusted? I couldn't see anything about it in the handbook. Not quite sure where I need to look to check its condition etc.
