That'll do it.

Gas Man Yeah that should just be in the freeplay.

yeah i practically have to let it go all the way before it grabs

theres times when ive stompped on the gas and it wouldnt catch and when i gradually gave it gas it would gain speed so maybe the clutch isnt totally gone but going. also my clutch grabs high. high to where i practically let go and it would grab

Double_R Dude You Just Might Need A Tune Up Including Fuel And Spark, Besides The Clutch

Gas Man Might be multiple things going on here. If you ignore tach... does it sound like a bad clutch? If so... go for that. And then deal with the dash/tach.

also at times when im going at a steady pace i sometimes feel the bike jerk a little and i noticed that the rpm needle goes down a little too.

King Bob start with electrical. checking for loose connections at your gauge cluster, stator etc. if the tach goes from cruising speed to 0 and back to cruising speed again, its not a clutch issue unless the motor does the same thing.

Without the tach thing, I would definitely say clutch. Since the tach is going berzerk, I would lean towards something electrical. A slipping clutch alone will not cause the tach to bounce to 0. The tach is measuring how fast the engine is turning, regardless of what is going on in the tranny.

Gas Man I would say clutch but the fact that the RPMs go to zero steers me away from that.

What did the actual motor do by sound? Were you giving it throttle? did you gain any speed? did the tach come back?

saverok sounds like either your clutch...*more than likely

or your transmission *less likely

I would start with the clutch.

richrom2 does anybody have any idea, should i be more detailed?
