    Yep, this is the issue. I have it happen to me even with the stock 18" bar and chain on my MS261. Just an issue of trying to cut too much too fast. For some reason, I don't experience it at all with the MS660.

    Wonder if de-greasing/cleaning the inside of the drum and then burnishing the clutch shoes would help?
