    Default Feels like clutch is slipping

    Has anyone had this issue, when I get on throttle feels like rear tire is spinning out but it's not, thought my clutches were going bad just replaced them & all washers & push pin, old disc looks good. Bike shift's nice now but will still slip when getting on it ?

    If you changed the discs then you probably also checked and readjusted the cable?

    To properly adjust the clutch is to adjust it in three different places.

    Details are in the service manual but you make changes at the clutch basket on the exhaust side of the engine, then at the cable on the opposite side and lastly at the lever.

    I was having the same issue until i left a little more slack in the clutch cable after doing the adjustment. turned out I was going a touch too tight and when at High R's, it felt like it was slipping. More than likely its in your adjustment.

    How old is your bike? It has some chrome so you might want to check your motor mounts.
