Clutch Engagement / Lever Pull
Attached is a photo of my '07 K1200R Sport. I purchased it last July with approx. 36K on the odo. I now have 41K (light mileage due to snowy winter in Colorado). This is the first wedge that I have owned. I have the following question:
1) When releasing the clutch, the engagement point is very close to the point of releasing the handle. This of course makes quick shifting quick and easy. Is that the way this system is designed? Is there a way to adjust it so that it releases a little sooner?
2) It usually idles as about 11-1200 RPMs. There may frequently be a little waiver in the needle when stopped.
3) When starting to move, if I rev it a little too much and release the clutch too quickly, sometimes i hear sort of a humming sound coming from the clutch. Can someone tell me what that is? Is it something that I should be concerned about.
4) Is there any way to soften the clutch lever pull so that it requires less force to engage and disengage?
Other than those items, the bike is a beast. I love the performance and handling.
