The clutch action is normal, the gearbox is tight in terms of lever effort especially if it has the uprated pawl spring, however your sounds worse than normal with neutral being hard to get so suggest set the clutch lever at maximum span, bleed the slave cylinder and if that doesn't do it change the engine oil for 10w-60, if someone has used 20w-50 it makes the clutch drag and downshifts become very notchy.
Opened up slave and clamped piston, a few slow pumps and hey
presto, a line of bubbles.
I wanted to like this bike (not tempting fate) but I think were gonna
get along just fine. Hmm.....think I can feel some crash protection coming on.
Its gotta be 100% better, I get the feeling gear change may not be super smooth
due to the nature of the engine. I guess I'm probably spoilt with the super slick
triumph 800 and not reputed to be great 954 blade.
Cheers to all helpers, I'm a happy man.
