Lurch at gear engagement.

When I have the clutch pulled in in neutral and put it in first, the bike clunks like normal but about a second later there's a slight lurch. I don't recall if this happened prior to my oil change. I am using amsoil 20w50 and at correct level. Any ideas?

Sounds like you both need to bleed your clutches.Also have you both got original levers or aftermarket?

Flush and bleed the clutch then with DOT4 brake fluid.

All should be good after a bleed.

Just use dot 4 brake fluid to fill the clutch? No special exotic MV clutch fluid made from baby seal blood?

No,Dot4 fluid is good for clutch and brakes.

Aric;
when are you going to get it?????

the baby seal blood is for the brakes

you need vaginal secretions from the Vestal Virgins for the clutch

Aric, please bookmark this for future reference so i don't have to repeat this again
