250 Virago Clutch
250 Virago, 2009, 4500mi.
I first noticed that on start-up the bike would jump a little and then settle down. On further investigation with engine off and with clutch lever pulled in all the way, there is drag when in gear and rolled forward or back. When put in neutral, rolls easily with clutch in or out. I then adjusted the the cable top and bottom for greatest extension action. Still drags when rolled in gear with clutch lever pulled. When adjusted for best action the bike will shift easily if a little clunky sometimes. Does anyone know this problem or have any suggestions? Would this most likely be a bad clutch needing replacement or could there be other considerations? Any help would be appreciated a lot. Thanks.
