Low power??

I have an 07 660 that seems to be very low powered. I bought it used and it has 1900 miles on it. It is a bit heavy as it has long travel, 4 seat cage, seats etc. I'm running 26x9x12 front and 26x11x12 rears. I know those are a bit heavy too. I just feel as if there is something wrong with the motor. I also have done the CDI, UTV Crap sheeve and purple spring, (can't remember the weights on the rollers). I have no bottom end even by myself it's all I can do to go up a hill especially in the dunes. It will do 50 MPH on flat to down hill grades but the second I hit a little hill it's as though a parachute has been thrown out. This is nothing new but I'm tired of it and need some help. Any suggestions on what to look for? Oil is good, new plug, Uni filter is clean, new belt, new fuel filter. I'm out of ideas, could the motor just be tired? I've seen a lot of Rhinos with a lot more miles than this. Sorry for the long post just need some advice from all you engine guys. Wish I had the $ for a Rotax or a 686 kit but not right now
Thanks for the help,

the first thing I would do is put lighter rollers in it... either way it sounds like a clutch problem, not an engine problem

What is the prefered rollers now? Greasless or the greasers? What weight would you recommend? Like I said I'm heavy with the 4 seater long travel etc... Do you think I may have it installed wrong? This is my second sheave I've put in and did it just like it came out. I'll taske it apart and see what's going on inside. Thanks for the help.
