Just thought of something else, if you have a run on condition (when the engine hesitates from comeing back down from high RPM) and you hit the brakes it would cause the same condition as a hanging clutch. My B7 did this for a little while off of jumps and I found an airleak. It was 2 loose head bolts, my fault. It would not stall the engine because my brakes weren't strong enough at the time.

In mind and body, we're all heading towards old age. It is slower to go by bike.
