Great to be back out on the bike after 5 weeks away with work but today noticed that when downshifting I get a very audible click that I can also feel on the clutch lever when changing down.
It's hard to explain but it's not the typical gear change noise and it's not the lever sticking when being pulled in as it basically goes like:
Pull lever in - change down - and as I change I can feel a click on the clutch lever before then letting the clutch back out.
Anyone else with a Dragster/B3 noticed this ? it's definitely only when downshifting and never happens when changing up.

Does your bike have a slipper clutch?

I ask becasue, on my 2010 Brutale 1090RR with a slipper clutch, that sensation exists.

I would advise bleeding your clutch with a total fluid change out to minimize the sensation.

I don't think it is abnormal.

The Dragster RR doesn't have a hydraulic clutch if that's what you're meaning.

Ah, yes....I should have known that.

The feeling is present in the slipper clutch of my hydraulic clutch as well.

Cool, thanks man. Being off the bike for so long you worry about strange clicks n clunks when you're back on it and since I've still not got my quickshifter repaired (my dealer is worse than MV at getting things done it would appear) I only really started feeling this.
