all clutches,steeles,one way clutch,and gasket are all oem.orderd from runs and shifts great. the atv tries to go time its slippied into gear at very low idle.

It sounds like the one way clutch was put in backwards, I've done this before... Very aggravating, but pull the side cover back off, flip the one way bearing around and you'll be good to go!
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
the one way has a lip on the obseverving side. I don't think its possible to install backwards on this model.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
after looking back at the reassembly was incorrect,due to the fact that I reassembled it just like I took it apart.there is a shim washer that goes on crankshaft is currentlt inside centrifugal clutch.thanks for your help .iwill be beck with some more toughys,once and awhile. going to rearrange my washer...

That's correct, I'll post a pic of the diagram, just to make sure we're on the same page. Some of these one way units have "outside" stamped on them, but it can still be confusing on whether or not that's looking at the bearing on the machine or inside the clutch housing.
But you're right, just flip it around and you'll be ready to go!
On the diagram it's item # *****
