Sometimes it's as easy as putting on a new clutch cable. Or cleaning/lubing the current cable (I like a dry moly); make sure there are no spurs in the metal cable. And adjust the lever pull properly.

It's an 05 YZ450.

Seems very smooth just heavy will try to clean and lube.

Did you buy the bike new or used? Do you know if it has OEM or aftermarket clutch springs?
