I have a 91 RXL and have a small problem. It has a small low end bog coming out of the hole. Do I need to rebuild my clutch?

Has it always done that? How many miles are on it. If there is lots, I would check over the clutches. On my xlt, the secondary clutch had some worn parts and thins happened, after replacing them, it was better.

the classic complaint....check to see where the belt is riding in the secondary clutch...it should ride 1-2 mm above the sheeve surfaces...polaris-man told me how to fix it. it is listed elsewhere on this forum or you can check your owners manual on how to adjust it. It cured my problem and now i have plenty of low end power

No it just started doing it at the end of last season. The sled has about 3500 miles on it. At first I thought it was the computer but that checked out fine.

Belt deflection should only be 1 to 2 inches. If it has more than that the secoundary clutch needs to be adjusted. The newer clutches have three screws on the outside that can be loosened and a cam turned that lets the two halves move together. the older ones need to be taken apart and shim washers taken out or added to get the right belt deflection. If the belt is good and the clutches adjusted properly the hesitation should go away. If it doesn't I would suspect either bushings that are binding or clutch whts. that are binding and not allowing the clutch to work freely.
