Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Clutch slip

Post by Jameshambleton on Mon 16 Oct 2017, 10:32 pm

So I think my clutch is starting to slip but it's strange, the bike still power wheelies in 1st, front pops up when shifting into 2nd and then again when shifting into 3rd. Other times I can be doing 20mph in 2nd and crack the throttle open and the revs will just increase but I don't go any faster but also I don't feel any addtional sliding on the rear which makes me think it's the clutch, any suggestions other than an oil change?

Sounds like to clutch to me too. I'd keep using it until it gets worse - it will then be obvious that it *is* the clutch and you can justify taking the cover off to prove it... not really a helpful answer, sorry.
