Losing times and mph all over the place.

Ok I took my bike back to the track tonight and was not happy with any of my times,I replaced my plugs and changed my gearing after my last trip to the track because I wasnt happy then.That wasnt my problem,I cant get the bike to 60 ft for anything anymore and my times went from consistent 9.30's at 147-149 to 9.70's at 139-141,60'ft dropped from 1.50's to high 1.60's. Im now running the same numbers on spray that it was running on motor before.It still has factory clutches.I did check them and they all were in spec and weren't worn so bad they needed replaced.COuld it still be the clutches??

you have a combination of things that are affecting your performance right now..you have found one with the clutches...but your second issue is gonna be the weather...the humidity has been robbing everybody this year..get your clutches replaced and you will get back alittle but not all..atleast not until the humidity subsides alittle..

Thanks Blue, I was wonderin if they were his own manufactured plates or some kind of combo of others. I've heard nothing but great things about them. I will definitely be goin to Dwayne when these ORIGINALS finally wear out. Besides my basket tryin to grenade, I've been very happy with the 10 clutch. SWB all last year cuttin 1.58's and have only replaced the steels this year, with kg clutch factory steels my buddy had at his shop. Still runnin the same fibers that were in it when I got it over a year ago!
