Clutch not fully disengaging - April 23, 2011, 03:58 PM

When I pull in the clutch lever all the way when starting the bike in 1st gear, it jerks forward. Also on a flat surface, again with the clutch lever pulled in, the bike will move along.

It appears the spring/cables will need to be adjusted? Where do I make this adjustment. Will it require minor dis-assembly?

This exact thing happened on my 05 R1 when it was new. Took it back to dealer for 1st oil change (because is was free) they apparently fucked up and used a "heavy oil" or some "mixed/contaminated" oil and it got all gummy. They paid to fix it, but instead I got them to give me parts credit... bought a Barnett Carbon Clutch and installed it myself. Flawless for 18k-miles.

Google is your friend here. Don't take anything apart just figure out how to adjust the clutch cable near the lever. Work on this until you get it right. I do not suggest taking the lever or the other side of the cable unless you know what your'e doing.
