F3, clutch lever movement.

I wanna know if its normal that when im riding in 6th gear and need to stop for a red light, that when I shift down gears and specially from 3rd to 2nd, and 2nd to 1st gear.
I feel my clutch lever move a little exactly at the same time as I shift down. I got the lever fully pulled in against the handlebar.

Now this might be the most retarded question you've seen on this forum.
But I only rode two motorcycles in my life. The bike that I did my lessons on and the F3.
And I cant remember if there was movement with my lesson bike.

Can someone confirm this is normal, or is my lever not adjusted correctly?
I believe the manual mentioned 1mm to 3mm play inbetween lever and levermount. But my dealer said it should be around 5mm to make sure friction plates dont slip.

What do you guys suggest.

Okay, so its nothing harmful to the gears or actual clutch?
So just improve on rev matching when shifting down?

Yes, it is normal and not harmful. Improving the rev match will make it go away. Don't worry if your style is such that it doesn't go away though.

It's this.

Blip the throttle on downshift and it will go away.

Doubt it causes harm, but feels more mechanically sympathetic to blip.

yeah it really is horrible on the f3, I thought there was something wrong as well, especially since mine still won't allow me to blip for downshifts.
