Clutch drag

When travelling approx 10-30km/hr and pull clutch in then throttle on/off sometimes the bike moves a little as if the clutch hasn't disengaged fully...I bled the clutch at master and slave and still same results. Any ideas anyone? Funny enough I had the exact same problem on my 2014 Zx14.

I forgot to mention ... Try it when turning, I know it sounds weird but I'm curious if any other H2 owners are experiencing this.

Hmmm...I noticed this recently with my 14R...can't remember it ever doing that.Not every stop,not when moving either.Very lightly,almost unnoticeable.But it did this a few times.All components are fine.Including fluids.

H2?Haven't felt this 'yet'.

Hi not to be funny here but set your leaver out further, and that may fix the problem. On my H2 I turned it in to much which caused problems

Sorry ... Posting on my phone !

Adjusting the lever further out should stop the dragging... Mines pretty much all the way out and still needs squeezing all the way to the bar ... Used to get a clunk going into first from neutral before adjusting it and that's mostly gone too .

Perhaps look at the adjustment at the clutch end and see if you can adjust the play. If this does not work, I would take it to the dealer as it would be an internal problem then

The only problem I have with the H2 clutch is that it's rather heavy. My modified Hayabusa had a Brembo clutch master cylinder and it was really light. With the H2 I find myself looking for neutral at a red light.

Back to the drag question, my hands are not large so the span-adjustment isn't very wide but the clutch completely disengages and doesn't drag. Could the problem craigeclark has be cured by bleeding the hydraulics?
