so you dont actually have to click it back in gear with your foot when it does this? Just let off the throttle and it reingages?

I just re-read your last post, yeah sounds like your clutchs, go-ahead and buy a set of clutchs(metals and fibers), motul oil and a filter, cover gasket, you should probably get new clutch springs with 27k on the bike. prices should be round about:$170clutchs, $30oil filter, $15 springs, $12 gasket, give or take on the prices. hit me up when you get them and you can come to my house and I'll show you how to change them, easy as pie, I'll even show you how to measure stack hight.

confirmed. i took her out and in both 1st and 2nd i was able to make her slip. all i had to do was ease off the gas, and when it got down to about 6k the power came back on, i didnt have to touch the shifter or anything. i wanted to do it in 3rd, but just too many cages on the road getting out for rush hour.

josh, you rock! check your PM's.

yeah that sounds like your clutch plates. Nothing to changeing them out.
get the parts listed above.
Get a price and then call k & N and get their price. Mention the v-max group and u will be supprised
U MAY be able to just order the fiber discs and just clean the metals. just depends how bad they are worn.
Later

Will the bikes RPM go up when it slips? or does it just lose power? I would spend a little bit of money and have someone check it out or let someone of knowledge ride it before spending $200.00 on a fix that won't work. It is almost impossible to troubleshoot a bike via the internet.

just do the smartest and yet cheapest thing, take to someone who knows exactly what they're doing.

dont try a DIY and cost yourself an extra $2000.00, TRUST me on this one..

pffft! my BIKE is not worth $2000, lol. i bought it for $1500, cash! seems like there are alot of opinions on whats going on with the bike...unfortunatly, opinions are like buttholes, everyone's got one. but i have to say i appreciate everyone opinion regardless! i asked for free advice, so im not going to look a gift horse in the mouth. also with free advice you get what you pay for...

im going to trust my gut, and go with what josh, another mechanic friend of mine, and some other people are saying. i see it as worst case scenario i replace some plates that dont or might not need it...which may leave me with a problem still, but also some spare parts. i dont see much lost there.
maybe i will get a big fat "i told you so", but maybe not. best case scenario this old fizzer will be keeping up a lot better with all the new bikes on the "sprited" rides...

robo, ill let you know when its going down. i should be ordering the clutch kit today, once it comes in i'll talk to josh well have to figure out when we do it. i keep hearing from people its a simple job...nothing to it, so we will see.
