The extra power must help. I maxed mine out on loop 303 yesterday at 88 on the trail tech speedo with 15/47, and that was all she had power-wise. I'm not on the most aerodynamic setup.

My E was 14/47 stock, which was perfect for 55 mph roads and decent Singletrack. I put 15/47 on recently with no issues of fitment and comfortable at 65-70 mph and a lot more clutch on Singletrack....

Fresh oil?
Have you tried adjusting the clutch cable? How old is the cable, maybe it's stretched a bit?
Does it not like to click in from first? Have you tried bumping down from 2nd?
