It's a 883. Doesn't have power anyhow. Give it to your girlfriend and buy a man's bike.😵

Or put a 1250 kit in it.

If you mean that the bike suddenly does not keep up with your applying power. I bet your clutch is slipping. You said you put in new clutches, they need adjusting. Primary leaking, likely a gasket from when you had it apart to change clutches.
