Check your rpm and then draw a line down one of the sheaves on the primary clutch with a black sharpie. If the mark is gone the machine is fully shifting out. If the mark is still there take a measurement of how far it is from fully shifting out. The problem can be addressed once these steps are done.

Good Luck!
