Burning smell from clutch

Today I replaced my sheave with one from Weller racing, came with rollers, I did the wet clutch, one way bearing, orange spring, bearing and seal on drum housing, Yamaha grease, new belt. I got home about dark it's kind of cool in the 70s I rode it down the road it is a little faster but when I stopped it smelled like burning grease. Turned arouND came home same thing. Rode about 10 minstrel at 3/4 throttle then stopped still smelled the same way. Any ideas before I take it apart again? Could it just be the new grease?

Don't know about the Rhino but Yamaha says not to use engine oil with friction modifiers in Raptors because it will cause the clutch to slip. I have always used it in my '07 Rhino just as a precaution.

I started after I replaced the sheave, still does it some but not as bad. I use yamalube in it, don't remember the weight, it's thick as nd full synthetic.
