Question about Honda VF 1100 Sabre Motorcycles
If it's not worn plates, there are a couple other possible causes of your slippage problem. BBecause the bike has a "wet" clutch, if you use any oil products with molly in them, thinking you are doing yourself a favor with that old engine, you are actually preventing the plates from doing their job. Also, if you don't measure your oil level accurately (and the level is LOW consistently) it will cause the same problem to "seemingly" exist.
My two cents.

Sounds like the clutch plates are either worn, or glazed over. its not that the bike is over heated, they just cant handle the heat anymore.
