Default Re: Slipping Clutch

Did you lube the gears on the right side of your engine? Often people over lubricate them and the excess grease gets onto the clutch pads. You can try cleaning them with automotive brake cleaner, usually sold in aerosol cans at the auto parts store.

The gears only require a very small dab of grease. Anything more and you can have the problem you describe.

Your clutch cable isn't too tight, is it?
