When I first start my 99 wr 400 the clutch is grabby and not smooth. I let it warm up for
about a minute or 2. Is this not long enough?
The tempture here is usally between 45 and 60.
I have mobil 1 synthetic red cap from walmart
in the crankcase. Could this be why ?
It only happens the first time I let out the clutch. Is it just becouse the plates have no
oil on them yet?
Just wondering if its normal?

I usually hold my cclutch in for about a minute while the bike is warming up, then move the lever in/out a few times prior to taking off. This seems to help the clutch action. hope this helps :)
