PostSubject: Wheel spin with Clutch pulled?   Thu May 11, 2017 12:01 am

Hey fellas,
I've got my bike on the lift, engine running. I pull in the clutch and drop the gear into 1st or 2nd.

It goes into gear and the wheel starts spinning with clutch lever still pulled in. - Is this normal? There's not much 'driving' the wheel spin as I can stop it with my hand.

The lever has plenty of room before the friction zone when i put the bike back on the ground and test.

Is it normal for the wheel to spin like this when off the ground and in gear, clutch disengaged?

TIA scratch

In general, yes, this is normal. The WRR clutch (like the vast majority of motorcycle clutches) is immersed in an oil bath, so there is always some drag between the plates.

Its normal, its not so much an issue on a bike that is warmed up.
