Clutch slipping

After I've changed oil on my R, the clutch is now slipping. It is most noticeable in 4th and 5th. The oil is Motul Semi- synthetic 10W40 API-grade SG.

What could cause this??? Maybe someone can help me out...


how many miles do you have? Have you tried adjusting?

Adjust what!! The cables?? Not the problem, cables are fine.

I might be going out on a limb here, but maybe it's the oil.

Try switching to the oil you were using before. Try the cheap fixes before ripping into the case to replace the clutch.

Maybe you're right. I just don't know what type oil it was before since this is my first oilchange on this bike. But i Think i will give it a try.

I am not that familiar with that brand of oil,but if its a auto motive oil and it says energy conserving on the label than its going to make the wet cluth slip.

just run good 'ol honda brand 10w40.

had the same problem, in my case was caused by the cheap motor oil I used.
