Initial break in is a must, the clutch will settle in after the install and will need readjustment. I rode mine about 35 40 minutes and it started to slip as well. But I simply shut down brought it home and checked the installed tolerances. I found them way off from when I first set it up. I was told to check them anyway as I said from rekluse.
Install ride for 30 or so min Bike is at Operating temp
Bring home check installed tolerances.
Did that and the bike is flawless now...
Be sure to use Two sets of Gages

now to the freewheel question. that was on my mind when i first rode the bike. i was ready to blip the throttle on anything that looked like a downhill. it wasn't a problem at all. if you lock up the rear wheel it will disegage and you'll have give it some gas to reengage but it's no big deal.
now for a little trick part i found. for those of us with 450's, the hot start lever is on the clutch perch. when you take off the clutch lever it looks bad. i found that the small back half of a ttr125 cluth perch will fit. you'll need a couple screws and nuts because there are no threads in either part. i comes out pretty sano and looks like a mount just for the hot start lever.
