Could be clutch needs adjustment.
I would recommend Motorcycles Unlimited on 1960. The owner, Patrick, is a forum sponsor and very highly regarded.

Seriously, they will check it out and let you know what you need to do. You won't find a more honest shop around.
There are others on this forum that I'm sure are also very good but not on your side of town as far as I know. Go see Patrick, you will become a believer, lol.

No offense to Patrick or any of the other shops but some of you guys immediately flee to a shop without even thinking over the problem first...
I really thought i would never be able to agree with you... but i cant agree with you more right now.

Buy a good service manual, a hard copy, a pdf, a downloaded bootleg one, borrow one from a friend, JUST GET ONE. it will make life so much easier/cheaper for you.
