First the disclaimer; this isn't a whine or a
that the bike is coming apart !
Rather that I, Grasshopper, am asking for knowledge from those who know more about this. The weather's turning crappy & I will be spending more time cleaning, tinkering & planing my next farkle with GRiSO than riding for a while.
The bike is a 2013 1200 8V, so the single plate clutch.
After the bike has sat overnight, starting off down the drive at 5mph, the clutch judders which means I end up feathering the clutch. The engine isn't lugging or lunging. After about 2 miles this smooths out.
This is different to the 'chatter' of the gearbox with the clutch out but in neutral. Is it to do with the low revs of the engine cos the bike's cold ?
In the Spring when I'll set the valves & re-balance the TB's I might answer my own question but for now I'm curious.
