I put a K&n filter on my 450, and now it seems to rev way high as soon as change gears. Did my filter help me that much on acceleration, or is my clutch slipping...

If your clutch is slipping it could be becuse of the oil. Your not supposed to use the economy oil because it has additives in there to make the oil more slippery causeing your clutch to slip.

What do you mean as soon as you change gears... Try not to use the clutch one time and see if it isnt rider error with the feathering of the clutch..... Like Mitco said you cant use synthetic in the Tranny side..... TOO slippery.....

If it still revs really high and your not useing the clutch YOU GOT A PROBLEM.....


Shift from 2-3 gears (so you dont have the chance of hitting N) w/ no clutch ... just let off the gas a little... and see how it does then.....
