I had two problems with the beast today !.
Ok I did a two hour Veteran's parade in Brunswick Maryland today, lots of stops and goes, my clutch hand held up fair, but after the parade, our group pulled into a parking lot to wind down and say our good byes. After sitting for about a half hour, it wouldn't start, spins up but wouldn't idle, and I can't catch if with the thottle, so I sat a half hour to cool everything down, as it was cool Mid 50's but I was feeling the heat in my legs. Then it finally started, so I took off and the first time I twisted for some power, the clutch is slipping, it's fine if I'm easy on the throttle, but slips when adding the power for a pass or faster take off. Now a 1 hour ride home, in 35-40 degree temps, I figured it would be cooling much better at speed, so far so good, runs fine at full cruise, but still slipping when I go for a fast pass. So waited some more, got close to the house, had another need for a quick go, to blend into fast moving traffic, it's still slipping. I'm into about 2200 miles since the last oil change, using mobile 1 20/50. Any similar experiences out there. I'm hoping after an all night cool down, it will be back to normal tomorrow when heading out. Total miles on the 07 is 6200
