(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?
Does the clutch level pressure feel normal when engaging? After changing my lines out, I had a similar issue and had to bleed the master cylinder separate at the top line bolt then the whole system as normal. Or get a vacuum bleeder. A little secret I use is Teflon tape on my threads of my bleeder fittings. Makes bleeding a cleaner and easier job.
