Suzuki Clutch Question

I rode my Buddy's 02 Katana Today, and Will idleing In 1st gear, With the Clutch In. The Bike Seemed Like it wanted to Roll Slightly Forward. Is this a Adjustment Problem or does his Clutch Need Replaced, I never noticed any Slippage of Gears,

Thanks,

Kevin

Will Be Purchasing a Bike before 2006!!

Hydraulic or cable? If it's a cable it may need to be adjusted. Clutch may not be opening enough!

A few ccs short of a full litre.

Prolly! You should have 1/16-1/8 of play. Don't over tighten or the clutch will slip.

My '93 Kat had a cable clutch so I'm guessing the newer ones do too.
For minor adjustment of cable play you can try the adjuster right at the lever. For any bigger adjustments go to the other end of the cable and adjust using the two nuts.
