BY SLIPPING I MEAN SLIPPING. WHEN ACCELERATING THE ENGINE RPMS INCREASE AND THE MAINTAINS SPEED. THE QUIKER YOU WRAP IT UP THE LESS POWER IT WILL TRANSFER TO THE WHEEL.....YOU KNOW SLIPPING

AND TO PUT IT TO SCALE.....I RODE HOME FROM WORK
(15 MILES HWY/1 MILE STOP N GO)
RIGHT OUT OF THE SHOP THE BIKE IS RUNNING 100-110.
DOES NOT SLIP A BIT.
BY THE TIME I GET OFF @ MY EXIT IT IS RUNNING ABOUT 220
NOT A NOTICABLE SLIP UNTIL I GET INTO THE NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE
I STOP AND ACCELERATE OFF AND ON PRETTY HARD. NOTICED THE SLIP SO I HEADED BACK OUT TO THE MAIN ROADS AND SURE ENOUGH 1ST
THROUGH FORTH I COULD NOT DO MORE THAN A LIGHT ROLL-ON WITH IT
SLIPPING LIKE A BIG DOG. BY THIS TIME IT WAS RUNNING ABOUT
225-230

ALSO FELT AS IF THE CLUTCH LEVER WAS FARTHER AWAY THAN I COULD EVER REMEMBER?
