TIM yea no that I think of it I poured a hole 4 qt.

Blue wave_ I like your advice. It should have something to do with the oil. But the thing is I went from synthetic w/ wet clutch( previous owner) to Castro part synthetic ( first oil change I do since I got the bike) but if it dosent stop slippin I guess checking the clutch plates would be step two.:/

You dont have to mention that its a wet clutch. We all know its a wet clutch. Go buy a jug of Rotella reg. Rotella T at Walmart. Dump the oil and refill it. If it stops slipping you are good to go. If it doesnt, you wasted 15.00 or so and you need new clutch fibers and maybe steels too.

If you search bikes+Rotella you will find many who swear by Rotella. I'm not trying to sell any oil here. I'm trying to provide a 15.00 test. If its not the oil, you lost 15.00. If you have to change the clutch, it means another oil change. If it is cured by the oil, you get a cheap oil change. You can decide after that if the oil works for you.

I've seen tons of over oiled bikes, never a "clutch burnt up".

Infact, Motorcycles Unlimited did an oil change on a Kawi I picked up one time that had 7 quarts of oil in it...

Clutch was flawless.

Just to clarify, it had 7 quarts in it BEFORE we did the oil change.
When we drained the oil it overflowed the pan.
