    With the bike up on a lift and the clutch lever pulled in while the engine is running the wheel turns. Does this mean that the clutch needs adjustments? Don't notice any pulling when on the ground. Thx

    Nope, in wet clutch there is some drag from oil between the plates. I suppose the bike doesn’t jump when you go from neutral to first gear...
