Don't really know how to describe it but to say clutch engagement is very sudden. And maybe its always been this way and i've just never notice.
The bike is a 2009 and has 9k miles with moderate to heavy offroad use, but primarily pavement miles. I'm the original owner, have not totally abused the clutch but haven't pampered it either.
The clutch is not 'slipping' and stays fully engaged once the lever is release. I'm just thinking there should be or used to be alittle more 'slip zone' before reaching complete engagement. Just makes for picking my way through first gear gnarly stuff easier.
