Drag Pak slipping after night at the track

So a few weeks back I went to the track. The next day my clutch was slipping. I was able to adjust it and everything was good. This past Friday I went to the track and today my clutches are slipping much worse! So much that if I give it half throttle it shoots to red line imediatly. I tried to adjust it but it didnt help at all. Last Friday was my 3rd trip to the track with the Drag Pak in. Anybody have a clue what the deal is?

Yeah, I haven't heard of anybody having problems out of it. If it was installed incorrectly I don't think it would have ever ran right. The weirdest thing to me is... When I loaded it into the trailer the clutch was fine. Then the next day, it's f***ed.

the first drag pack i put in my bike last me a whole bunch of passes on the bottle and a bunch more on the motor for the rest of the season then rode all through the winter and the next spring the first trip to the track it finally slipped..

Do you have stiffer springs? How much play do you have in your clutch lever?

I haven't pulled them out yet. I won't be able to for a couple of days. I have about .125" of play.

I am racing second year with the pak and no problems, but I did take it easy on the clutch when I first installed it and put lots of street miles on it before I took it to the track. And I do pull my clutch out after 50 or so passes to go over steels and soak fibers in oil for couple of hours. I've been running stock factory clutch springs too, but going to put stiffer ones tomorrow
