Just got a 2019 cb1000r and only have rode it twice so far. Still too cold unfortunately. So I am noticing a few things related to shifting that are concerning but am unsure if it's normal. I am getting a cable click sensation in the clutch occasionally and am unsure if it's normal slipper behavior? The clutch also grabs a lot further out than I am used to. Like 3/4 to the end of the clutch throw the friction zone begins. Im used to about half way. Bike only has 4000mi and assumming the previous owner wasnt squiding i dont think its wear. Also, yesterday I noticed shifting from 2nd to 3rd was difficult at times. Very inconsistent. I had a few missed shifts then paid more attention to it. Seems like it was almost getting stuck at times. I'd have to really try to shift with proper foot placement and intent. Not effortless and smooth like it had been all day. I can't tell if it was fatigue bc I was 3.5hrs into a spirited ride, improper foot placement, or a trans issue. From what I read there isn't many Trans problems on this bike. I'm hoping it was my big fat feet lol. Wondering if anyone else noticed these things?
