The shop called this afternoon and said that they bike was ready for a test ride. Went down and took it to run some errands. A few times I felt a little jerk in the high RPM range of 1st gear, only in first gear so I thought that it was about to start slipping again, but it did not. It slipped, jerked again turning through a stop light and I thought, "Wow, that might not have been good if I were 2 up and loaded down." So one problem is fixed only to reveal another...UGH!!! Freaking Romulian!!!

My thoughts are one of two things. Either 1) 1st gear is worn and is the culprit or 2) It felt as though it could have been in the shaft, could have a problem in the drive and only presents in high torque situations, i.e. high RPM range of 1st gear.

The guy at the shop said he noticed it but that he thought it was odd because it did not do it every time or in any other gear. He also said that this thing is a BEAST and could not believe the power it has.

Your thoughts???

Did a little research, good luck is it seems it is as simple as just the clutch plate. Got a decent lead on a possible trade on a Spirit. I think I really want to be Honda biased, hopefully this deal will go through and I can have another Honda in the shed.

It sounds like your still having a clutch issue. Like the plates arent seated completely after releasing the clutch. If it were a bent fork or a stripped gear I would think youd have the same issue through all the gears and everytime your under load. I'd take some easy rides on it and get the clutch fully seated. Or, just trade it for that Spirit! You should be able to diagnose and build a Honda in your sleep.

LOL...it really is hard to ride "easy" on this thing, that's like telling someone to ride easy on Fergie.

Easy as in not riding the dragon! Just letting the clutch wear in.

Exhaust is shipping to me...she even told me not to worry about shipping up front, just mail her a check when I got the exhaust.
