Yes, I know how to adjust the clutch lever freeplay. However, sometimes it feels like the clutch does not dissengage fully. when I gear down I can hear the RPM change (go up). is this normal? The bike is an 03 with not too many hours on it and fresh oil. Clutch never slips. any thoughts?

your clutch basket may be worn causing the plates to not free up.Its worth the 5mins it takes to check

Just filed my clutch basket fingers smooth again. It took about an hour. No dragging and easy to find neutral again!

Yes, this makes sense. I will have a look at this next week when I'm back in my garage.

A little bit of clutch drag is normal.
Stock steel plates do warp.
Drag is usually a function of warped plates more than a notched basket.
