Clutch slipping

I have a 2015 road glide with 2000mi and I changed my primary and trans fluids and replaced both with formula 1 primary and trans fluid. Now my clutch is slipping any reason why?

I would pull the derby covery and adjust the clutch to be sure that is fine. Or use the warranty it still has and take it to your dealer and let them worry about it

You need to adjust your clutch pack. It's easy. Here's a link to a How To video

I'm with rlaf75, readjust your clutch and try it again. Otherwise you might need to replace the primary fluid.
GOOD LUCK!

Was it slipping before you worked on your bike ? If no, rechecked your work. Did you add too much primary oil ?

get rid of the pussified stock clutch diaphragm spring and get the screamin eagle one. Several years back (06? 07???) HD made the clutch "easier" to pull by reducing the spring pressure. Any time you go stage one (or even just a better tune), often the soft clutch spring will allow slippage.

I know you said you only changed fluids so imho its likely an adjustment issue as others have mentioned. I just hate the stock springs.

Doesn't the 15 have a hydraulic clutch?

Didn't Harley have recalls on that clutch too? ?

I would take it to the dealer

+1^^^^

Take it back to the dealer because you can't adjust a hydraulic clutch anyway so let them sort it out. Probably is the recall that has not been performed on your bike yet.
