I went by to pick up my 2010 from the indy today and when i was leaving the lot i noticed the clutch wasn't catching until the lever was let out almost all the way. this set off alarms for me because i know that's not right, and it just felt wrong as well. well i took off down the road and cracked open the throttle , was getting good pull, and then no pull at all when the revs started climbing to the point where i would normally change gears. i then eased back to the shop and told them it didn't feel right, i tried to explain what was happening. to me it feels like the clutch is slipping, never had that happen on a bike before, but have had it happen in one of my old stick shift cars. feels the same.
well, here's the short list of maintenance that was done while in the shop:
-swapped stock hand levers for black levers
-terry components TV3 auto tuner installed
so, the guy is telling me that it's a simple clutch adjustment that needs to be done?
anyone experienced this before or have any insight on what's going on?
of course, all of this happened just right before closing time, so the bike was left there to be fixed tomorrow. i really don't think the autotuner would have anything to do with this, but i don't know at this point. i know i won't get multiple things done at once to the bike again.
thanks for looking, ride safe.
