2011 F4 possible clutch issue

I have a 2011 F4 and recently have noticed when pulled up to a light that while in 1st gear with the clutch lever pulled in that it wants to pull forward. Also much harder to get into neutral when it's acting like this too. There have been times when I can't get it into neutral but if I shut the bike off it goes in to neutral easily. I'm not very knowledgeable about the clutch on a bike and have an appointment to take it to my dealer but I thought I would check and see if anyone here might have ideas that I could suggest to my dealer to speed up troubleshooting.

Thanks,
DJ

Have you tried adjusting the lever travel at all ?

Thanks for the suggestion. I will suggest it to the mechanic when I bring it in.

No I haven't. The problem isn't constant so I didn't bother messing with it much. It shows up intermittently. The clutch master is new on it since a guy hit the bike with his truck while the bike was parked. It spent most of the winter in the shop waiting for parts. It's possible that they got air in the line when installing the new master. I never had any issues prior to that.
