I have an 11 year old ST3 with 70K on it. Recently when I let the clutch out in first gear the clutch does not seem to engage and I get a nasty thrashing sound and feeling because it takes a second to finally get into gear. This does not happen in any other gear. Shifting is very smooth. It seems to get better as the bike warms up. Any thoughts on what might be the problem.

Thanks

It is a wet clutch. I have taken the bike into the shop every 6K miles since I originally bought it. The symptoms only happen when I first start out. After riding for about 5 -15 minutes, the symptoms no longer occur. It is the original clutch (not sure how long they typically last). I do about half/half city/freeway driving.
