hey everyone
it has been 2 days since I noticed this problem. My bike runs fine when I first start riding but after warm up, when I crank on the throttle, my bike just makes exhaust sounds but I am not going anywhere. The only way I can describe it is if you pulled in the clutch while twisting your throttle. I can get to speed in highway traffic but I need to get there in a very slow manner ( I cant twist the throttle hard or I don't go anywhere ). Please let me know what you think it could be? thanks in advance

It's a hydraulic clutch - so no cable. Try bleeding the clutch, or if the fluid in the master cylinder looks dark then change it completely. If a bleed/fluid change doesn't fix it then I'd look at the plates next.

Do you think it might be the cable needs adjusting if there is provision for that?

Agreed.. no cable with the hydraulic clutch.

As mentioned, start with bleeding the system with a quality brake fluid.

BTW: Is it an OEM clutch or aftermarket?

As throbber said, bleed the clutch even if the fluid isnt dark. The ducs from what i read are prone to getting air into the lines if you're using stock master cylinders. Its literally a 10 min job and a cheap and easy way to rule out air in the lines.

I was thinking clutch but it seemed to have come without notice. I was sitting in hot traffic for a long time the day before.
The color of your fluid looks fine, but it doesn't mean the system shouldn't be bleed.

As mentioned before start with bleeding the system, if that doesn't work then head toward plates/clutch.
