Sounds like your clutch is slipping.

Hi all


I have a 100/6 with twin carbs and the old gallery head.


This weekend I retuned the front carb which was running rich and got (I think!) both carbs running the correct mixture (according to Colourtune and the lifting pins).


However, out on the test drive I get intermittently no/poor acceleration.  In fourth gear at 2,000 RPM and 40 MPH, if I accelerate fairly hard, sometimes the revs and speed pick in unison, but at other times the revs will immediately shoot up to 4,000+ RPM with very little increase in speed.


Any ideas what I might have managed to break?


Many thanks
