Okay, here is the problem. Recently replaced the fork seals and bushings and steering stablizer bar and drove it home. After getting it home (and it rode GREAT) decided to go ahead and change the oil to get it ready for the riding season. Attempted to ride it up onto a couple of 2x6's as it's a trike and the oil pan won't fit under it unless it's raised up. While trying to climb a mere 3 inches the clutch began to chatter and it would not pull the grade. Tried this several times as l could not believe it would not climb this small incline.When this failed the third time l pulled it out and went to drive it around the block. It acts like the clutch is slipping, at 3k rpm its still only goes about 15 miles pers hour. It apparently shifts okay but goes no where. l just changed the oil thinking that it might help, but it did not and l noticed that it will roll, in gear and when l started it in third gear the bike continued to run despite, the clutch being out and no brake, What the heck happened, and please don't tell me the clutch went out, l've had enought bad news lately. The drive shaft shelled out last year.
