Hey guys took my bike(07 YZ450) out for its first real ride (in my ownership) after doing a bit of an overhaul. Was doing some hill climbs at a ski slope and it felt like my clutch was slipping. It engages fine but when im moving pretty good and give it some throttle it seems to slip then when i release off the throttle I can feel it pull a bit harder like the clutch catching again. I dont know much about dirtbike clutches but I do know a bit about cars and usually upon engaging is when you know if its shot or not. Let me know what you guys think before I go throwing money at it!

Yes, probably a worn out clutch pack
