clutch problems?

My friends R1:

Just sitting there, we
1) press in the clutch
2) turn it on

When we bump it into first (just sitting there)
it kind of jerks just very very slightly.

Is this normal?

thanks

The MSF Course is the answer, as I have been saying from the start. Mind you one can learn on their own, as I did right after WWII, all on my own with no peers or relatives or friends that road m/cs, no asking questions as you & others are often doing, to plain errors & mistakes till you find out, but believe me so much is answered by the MSF Course.

So do not be be in a pinic & wait till you enter the course & follow their instructions to guidence for you will be riding one of their bikes.

Huh? The lurch when going to first from nuetral is completely normal in wet clutches. Even when the clutch is disengaged, the oil in the clutch sticks the plates together, and when the transmitionis goes into first, that bond comes undone suddenly resulting in the "clunk" and lurch. You can adjust the clutch cable untill you hands turn blue and you still wont get rid of it. Draining the tranny of oil will, but you will find yourself shopping for a new bike very very soon.

The only reason it made it to a thread is because its coming from a newbie with very little expirience in bikes. No offence meant here, the "clunk" suprises many newbs, myself included.
