Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You could have several things going on. The problem may be front clutch leakage, it could be throttle valve related, possibly an engine power related issue that's causing you to have to use more throttle than would be normal for acceleration.

Did the problem start all at once or has it gradually gotten worse?

Have you checked for fault codes?
