Yeah, sounds like one of the clutches is slipping. Probably the change clutch. Time to replace the clutch discs.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

I usually just replace the fiber discs as long as the steel plates aren't warped or something. I use emery cloth, in a circular motion, to scuff up the plates just to de-glaze them a little. Don't forget to soak the new fiber discs in clean engine oil for about an hour before installing them.

Yeah, that's the centrifugal clutch. It could be the clutch that's bad, but the way you described it, it sounds like the change clutch is the one that's slipping. The change clutch is usually the one that goes out first. You have to remove the centrifugal clutch to get to the change clutch, so while you have it off, you can measure the lining on the shoes and you can also measure the inside diameter of the clutch drum to see if they're withing spec.
