Thanks for the extra detail, htown. I'll give this a shot tonight when I get home. I've been plagued with several nagging issues lately and I think they are all clutch related.

- bike dies shifting into first unless the throttle is open slightly
- difficulty shifting, especially into first (I try to shift and it clicks and bike jumps a little, feels like 1st is engaged - but there is no power when I let off the clutch. Takes two - three cycles of this to really engage 1st gear)
- creeping forward with the clutch lever fully depressed (when I'm trying to engage first as described above)
- cannot seem to free up the clutch using the procedure you described for testing (depress clutch lever and turning the engine over with the kick start lever)
