1999 warrior high rpm problems

Hey guys, I recently picked up a '99 warrior thats mainly stock except for a K&N filter with a jet kit put on by the previous owner. I took it out for the first time in the trails on my land and had no problems going through them in 1st and 2nd gear (dense wood trails) But when it was time for some asphalt riding i kicked it into 3rd and 4th and noticed that it would rev high rpms and have little power to it. It sounds/feels like theres something vibrating in the front ( it does that when you rev it while idling as well). Also noticed there was a sound like a stick was stuck under it hitting metal (there wasnt) when i went back down into 2nd and 1st. Any suggestions/thoughts????

Not sayin this is your problem and also not tryin to sound like an idiot but i was hearing the same thing when i first picked up my warrior. i heard the metal sounds and what not i thought it was comin apart turns out it was just the skid plates had come loose and were vibrating real hard. But if your losin power at higher rpms my UN-PROFESSIONAL opinion would be clutch is slippin or something along those lines..... but thats just me

Thanks man, i took it back out today and put it up on a stand while it was running and as soon as i pulled in the clutch the back tires started spinning. And when i took it out for test run again wouldnt you know it the clutch started acting up. So from here i am going to replace the clutch and see where that takes, ill post again and let ya know how i make out
