I have an '07 kow vulcan only 6k miles and recently rebuilt carb., now it is losing compression and is killing me to speed up even in low gear, could the clutch plates be shot even at this low mileage?

  • have you tested the compression? – Ceshion Aug 15 '17 at 23:10

    Welcome to the site. What does compression have to do with the clutch plates? They are completely unrelated. I have a feeling something is going on with your bike and you're guessing at what you think it might be. Why don't you explain what's going on, in complete detail. Don't tell us what you think is going wrong, tell us what is happening when you ride your bike. We're here to help, but we can only help when you give us information without supposition. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Aug 16 '17 at 0:05
  • If the clutch is worn out, the engine will rev fine, but the bike won't accelerate. – MooseLucifer Aug 16 '17 at 0:06
  • How did you test the compression? What was the result? Has a setting slipped in the carb - since you mention that as previous work? – Solar Mike Aug 16 '17 at 6:18
