Its a safety feature my 650 does the same
Barnett coil conversation sorted the problem with my 1100. A bit costly but lasts much longer and no slipping.
What's that then?
And make sure your oil doesn't include friction modifiers.
Yamaha cruisers have been plagued with clutch slip from day dot. Definitely not a safety feature lol.
As above, change your clutch springs to a set of Heavy Duty Barnett springs. You can do it yourself in about 30 minutes. There is a few tutorials on youtube for it. The springs cost about $50 for the xvs650. Dont know what the sting is for the 1100
The shop I had it from did a service on it before I picked it up, so they should have put the correct oil in, but hey anything is possible
I had this issue after filling with fully synthetic oil. Drained and filled with semi and all was well
