Clutch lever travel

This 2006 K1200r is a new bike for me. I would like to hear if what I'm seeing is normal for others.
The character of the clutch lever pull is different than my other BMWs. I need to pull the lever right to the bar to disengage completely. Then on release meaningful engagement happens only at the very last bit of release travel. I'm thinking this might just be the way it is with that diaphragm spring. That spring is like a cone. When pressure is initially applied, a good potion of the force is directed inward towards the plates. But as this cone collapses, the direction of the force begins to be slightly directed more outward. This could explain why the initial movement of the lever has the most noticeable effect as does releasing the leaver, it happens in the same area. So to change this characteristic would involve a different spring rate, if that's the right term, or a shim under the central portion to the diaphragm spring. A shim might make the rate of movement of the hope fade less. Im not an engineer but don't think this is probably viable. This is my thinking about why the way this clutch lever feels the way it does. Do others have the same feel or is it just this bike. Am I trying to legitimize something that's just messed up? Have you done anything or found a technique that was able to alter this.

Most of the people love to travel in the car which offers the Best traveling experience as well during the holiday trip. If you want to do traveling in the car then you can get rented cars which provide the option of the outside travel as well.
