Clutch Question - 2018 M1200s

2018 M1200s - 1750 miles.

I got on it the other day and on the way to work something seemed different. it seemed like the clutch bite point had “moved out” toward the end of the lever release - i.e. away from the bar. In fact, almost felt like I was going to stall it the first time riding off.

After speaking with service dept, the thought was that I there might be some air in the line? Took it in, had them check and replace fluid, bleed line. Rode the bike home and it still felt the same. Called, spoke to service, tech said he didn’t take it for a proper “ride” but did ride it around the parking lot and everything seemed fine.

Any thoughts???? I know I’m not crazy in that something definitely feels different if not right.... Any advice is most appreciated!!

Thanks for the response...so do you know if this is considered normal?? Even though it has the quick shifter, I still use the clutch when shifting most of the time...even the transitions from 1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd, etc. seem different. I guess if this is considered normal then it’s me that will need to adjust...🤔

I think you need to try adjustable levers. This all seems normal..
