    I just got my bike back from the 10k service and a new starter...and had the lean running issue looked at... Now if I hit the throttle too quickly the bike just revs and takes off slowly. Could I just need to adjust the clutch or could it be totally gone. I di drive rough and pop wheelies and all that...

    It's a 2008 with the 1200, Arlen Ness stage 3 intake/air cleaner, power commander III, V&H slip ons...
    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Mostly just wanted to commiserate since I'm having clutch issues too...but if it were me I would check the gear oil level since it just came out of services. (EDIT) happens and maybe the phone rang just as the guy was intending to put the right amount of gear oil in it.
