Are you on the gas in a hard pull and trying to shift?

My best guess is that the clutch got hot and started to get grabby.

WAsh the bikes and change the oil in them and see if it gets any better... I've never had that happen before.

Well I wasn't pulling to hard I guess - I mean I would let off the gas and try to shift, would have to shift down and then back up

I have cleaned the bikes and just changed the oil and cleaned the scotts' filter before I went riding.
