new oil, clutch slipping
first off, Rylan at the vic shop is awesome. he answered the phone after hours and spent the time to talk to me about this issue.
so, my 2010 cross roads now has 8700 miles on it, the first year I ran victory oil, the next 2 seasons I used Castrol semisynthetic 20w-50 motorcycle oil for use with wet clutches. I have never had any issues. this spring I changed it with the same Castrol as before. Saturday I got back from a 2155 mile trip to the smokey mountains and on the way back I stopped at a vic dealer and grabbed an oil change kit. I changed the oil on yesterday and it slipped twice today.
from what I gathered from Rylan, the change in oil types could cause this and it could possibly go away. he also informed me I could be needing a clutch soon. has anyone else had an issue like this arise and go away??
my clutch cable is adjusted so there is plenty of slack, yes it has been checked cold.
if I do need a clutch, Lloyd has the Barnett kit with the steel and fiber plates, is that all I should do? I will have cams soon so I don't want to shortcut anything, lets do this once and be done.
