too much oil in the clutch

I don't know about plugging it but for sure my experience is a little more oil passing thru the clutch makes a "drag" feeling. There is a slight difference if it's really dragging like it is not disengauging - bliping the throtle will increase the pulling away, whereas a little to much oil will actually drag less if the engine speed goes up.

I have a slightly larger jet (long story) and I like it because I get this characteristic and know the jet isn't clogged.
Our difference in observation could be the amount of oil passing. My "larger" jet is drilled at .012 inch. Just a hair larger.
My 950KTM makes me feel like a little kid again......because it's so tall!
