Clutch friction zone

Hi,

On my stock 2018 GS, the friction on the clutch lever doesn't start until I've released the lever about 2.5"-3" (which is almost all the way out) leaving only 1/2" to 1" of friction zone before the lever is fully released.

Is this correct? Easily adjustable if not?

Thanks

in my case I adjust it until I'm happy with the 'biting-point'..

Thanks, was wondering if BMW just defaults to that long bite or if perhaps the cable just needs an adjustment now that I'm at 1000 miles.

Thanks again!

most likely, it is the cable. BMW did not invent anything new in the clutch system. in gs, they do not even fit the slipper clutch which is pretty standard these days, even in cheap bikes.

as you love riding, you need to love you bike
