I've got this problem that just popped up with my clutch. Bike's a 99 600, about 13k miles. When the bike's in gear, and I pull in the clutch, the bitch is hard as hell to move. It doesn't move around like it's in neutral (like it used to). Plus, if I have it in gear, hold the clutch, and start the engine, the bike creeps forward a bit. I've tried adjusting the little spinny thing up by the clutch lever, and that didn't help from what I could tell. Any suggestions?

I would disconnect the cable and see if it is rough to slide the cable inside the housing of it. It sounds like you are getting ready for a new cable.

Cool. I hope that's the problem. My cable was all shitty (felt really rough) so I sprayed some super lube in it to make things smooth. It wasn't totally smooth after that, but it was better... and that's right around the time this problem cropped up

Well, I replaced the cable, and it's the exact same problem. Is there something that may need some sort of adjusting?

hummmm... If you have a lot of slack in the lever that would cause it... Check it from the lever to the perch, and make sure you have a small amount of slack... If it still acts up it might be time for a new clutch... But normaly the clutch will slip when it gets old.. not lockup..

I adjusted the spinning thing by the lever so that there was very little slack in the lever...
