Re: Slipping Clutch
I noticed the slip in my clutch when accelerating to pass in 5th. In the lower gears it was ok. My slave gave out and would no longer disengage the clutch. It's a dry clutch just like a car. If you slip it too much, you'll burn it. You don't have the low end grunt of a Vtwin motor so you can't just dump the clutch, you have to finesse it a little on take off.

Most of us would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.
