I did a Top end overhaul started her up and went for a 150 mile test run. I must say the engine ran good for my first time major service. It's a 2011 FLHTK Ultra Glide Limited with SE 10.5 to 1 high compression pistons - Vance and Hines Power Duals w Monster Rounds - Tuner and Stage one Breather w/ Wood 8-6 Cams
The Bike has 34,000 miles on it and had a valve train noise with Lots of Carbon Build up on the Pistons and Valves. So I rebuilt the Top end.
While I was driving I noticed the clutch seemed like it was slipping. At around 75 mph and about 3000 rpm's+ Dropped it down to 5th and gunned it. Tack went to 4,000 rpm's (felt like clutch was slipping) I also drove up a hill and released the clutch, then engaged the clutch and it grabbed ok, a little soft / smooth. I just came back from CO from NY with no clutch problems, just started happening after the work I performed.
Any suggestions please.
Thanks-

Check the clutch adjustment, then if all is correct, I'd think the clutch might be worn, not showing until you increased the power, with the top end rebuild/ upgrade. Might need a stronger pressure plate or just a new clutch.

Thanks for the advise, I think that's what's going on. If I can only find where these four bolts go that are left over I'd feel much better. They have a 6 written on top, six point. They are the same bolt that bolt on the breather way up top. (2 each cylinder) I believe there 6mm x 2" or 1.75" to the under the bolt head. 2/3rds are threaded. Thanks for the reply, any Idea's?
