More power.....good & bad.
Installed the VFC3 a few weeks ago. Very happy with the power increase. Also have got a few other goodies, timing wheel-advance, Lloydz air filter, exhaust. So all this adds more power, which I really enjoy. Trade off fuel mileage goes down when the right hand is twisting it harder, but if I ride it normal it is ok. The other thing I had happen last night first time, clutch slippage. Yes I am running pure synthetic oil, which in the desert heat I really prefer to the blend. I do have free play in the lever as the manual says. Last night I had one of the older grandsons on back. May be the last time he goes with me, he is heavier than I am,which makes the bike quite a hand full. Anyhow we were getting on a on ramp to the freeway going up hill and I was gassing it pretty good, but not wide up and then the fricken clutch slipped like three times. Never had it happen on this bike before. I was a little disappointed only got 17K on the bike. Never had a bike slip the clutch with this low of miles..... the flip side to this the bike is making a more power than stock, so I am happy about that. The bad thing is if gets worse I may be buying a new clutch, maybe a Barnett. The other bad thing I think the time for the grandson riding on the back is over, he will be disappointed. He is 14, but but a big kid, so it will give him a goal to start saving for his own bike which is a good thing.
