Tranny slipping?

I noticed lastnight when I get one the throttle the bike revs high and doesn't really go anywhere when Im going down the road. Could this be the clutch or is it the trans?

Mine did that last week. It's your clutch slipping. Just try turning the adjuster on the handle bars in a couple of rounds.Thats all mine needed.

FYI your clutch lever freeplay should only be 2-3mm.

+1 for adjusting the clutch free play first. And for thsoe that don't want to measure, 2-3MM is about the width of a nickel.
