Mid Range Power problem- Question

Hey all, I'm new to these boards, and I was hoping I could get some help... I bought a 95 Vmax 600 LE in the fall, and I did a little bit of work on her, mostly cosmetical and simple (plugs, belt), and it runs great, up to 60 mph. After 60 it seems like it takes an eternity to gain 5 or 10 mph, and I'm trying this straightaway on a lake. The trottle is a little loose, but i don't think that's the problem because i pin it and then play with that, and still nothing. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated... Thanks...

Okay, what does the tachometer look like?

In other words, is it making full rpms and being slow?

Did you put the correct belt on(not always the one you took off). It sounds like clutching. Do you know if the secondary is opening up? Does it get to 60 quickly? I'm guessing if it were plugged jets, you would have fried the motor already. But its always a possibility.

It seems like the RPMs are fine, and it seems to be gettign up to 60 fine also, which is why i'm really unsure of what it could be. I'll check the belt again, thanks. I don't know to much about clutching at all, so i wouldn't know what to do with that...
