When its cold it will be fine with this issue but when it gets warm the shifts get clunky. Also if you have the stock lever is it adjusted so its easier for you to release the clutch? Also as previously posted possibly on one of the other forums you posted on. Have you checked your clutch lever bushing to see if its worn? Because if its worn badly it can cause shifting issues with the clutch lever.

s there a place where i can see or look how to check that clutch lever bushing ?
I try the shifther it self tonight ...and it seems ok to me ...I'm not a shifting guru but that shifter look ok to me

so i guess if I can look that bushing it might be a good thing
thank you

I would pull the pivot pin and lever and look and check to see if theres any play between the bushing and pin.

This picture is of a 1200 but it's the same bushing, if it looks oval it's worn.

I doubt that is your problem if there is one but the bushing was mentioned and most think of the pivot bushing when looking for it.

That don't look good. Will a magnet pick those up and can you gather them up and clean them for a better look?
The problem is not the clutch if it doesn't creep at a stop or isn't hard to get in or out of neutral.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

here few closeup pictures of the biggest particles that i found in my pan after dumping the oil
about magnet ....i will have to confirm that in few hrs ...hang on


about neutral few example:
when i ride and stop at a light in gear # 4 ...I can go down to gear #2 easily , to go from 2 to 1 I need to release the clutch a little and barely push the bike back and forward and then it goes to 1 . after it quiet easy from gear # 1 to go neutral

when I ride and proceeding to stop at a light I can easily go from 5 to 4 to 3 to 2 to either neutral or 1 during the deceleration until full stop


------------------------------
PS
I'm french and i might be confuse between clutch term .
when I press the clutch lever toward the handle , I call it engaging the clutch

when i don't touch the clutch lever I call that the clutch is not engage

from what i read im not using the right term at the right place ( engaging and disengage )

Are those chunks metal? From the picture they almost look like carbon. If it's metal you have a serious issue.
