R6 slipping

Hey,
My R6 fells like it is slipping in higher gears at high speeds. kinda fells like it is lagging. Any ideas?

Could it be due to lubing my chain recently? Cause the bike was fine before lubing, but after is when I started to fell the lag.

Help me

Never heard of chain lube causing that. Perhaps you have some other maintanance issues that need addressing. Probably just need to have her tuned up a bit.

Sounds like the clutch may be slipping. If you want, bring it by Tuesday and I'll check it out no charge.

are your RPM's dropping? or does it just rev without going anywhere? mileage? sounds like you may need some friction plates, but that's just a guess based on the little info provided. Joe
