    clutch sticks?

    Hey guys. I have a new 2015 tw with about 130 miles on it. I dont ride too often maybe 20 miles a weekend so far. But recently it seems like the clutch sticks after sitting. I rode about 5 miles yesterday and i go to move it today, pull in clutch to roll it and feels like its still in gear until i really give it a shove. Then still feels a little stiff. This is my first bike so im pretty clueless. Feels like clutch is not engaging fully. any ideas or help would be appreciated. Joshua

    I think Z is probably right. Don't worry about it. You got a lot of warranty left.

    Joshua, don't worry, a lot of them do it. Just pull in the clutch and rock the bike back and forth until it releases. This will also help with the clunk and lurch dropping it in first when you are taking off for the first time of the day.

    I have read that some guys have burned out the clutch going down long down hills with the clutch pulled in engine off and not in neutral.

    I believe the return spring is unrelated to the problem of sticking clutch plates, but check it anyway. You want it in the correct position.
