clutch is fried when the bike no longer moves when you are on the throttle or when under extreme load the motor will spin at higher rpms and the bike won't go any faster....or accelerate at it's optimum

+1 cruise up to 5k and then pin it and if the rpm's climb but the bike doesn't go then you clutch is bad.

Well it still pulls and is still torque-y, it'll even wheelie thru the first three gears...just doesn't feel the same. I guess it probably just needs an adjustment...

If it is cable clutch then try adjusting it as per your manual and if it is hydraulic then try bleeding it. You might even drain and replace the fluid with some fresh stuff depending on how many miles you have on it. Make sure you get all the air bubbles out...kinda like bleeding brakes. P.S. it is brake fluid so make sure not to get any on any painted surfaces.

What do you mean "plates are going out" exactly?

OH ....yeah Happy Birthday man...


Sean, by plates goin out, I mean the plates in the clutch. These plates get worn out and cause it to slip.
