07 GSXR1000 Clutch Problem - wont fully disengage

When shifting from neutral, the gears hit hard, like the clutch is not fully disengaged. All gear to grab as I shift thru with the handle fully squeezed. Very noticeable on the lower gears. The problem has been getting worse over the past month. I have been teaching my girl to ride her new gsxr600 and I think the low speeds and heat might have made the problem worse.

This past weekend I bled the clutch with fresh dot 4, and changed the oil. Also, I tried all the settings on the clutch handle dial. I have good firm pressure and fluid motion of the clutch handle. But the problem still persists.

I have a hydraulic clutch set up, and not to familiar with how to work on it. Looks simple, but there are no external adjustments other than the turn dial on the clutch handle. Bike has 20,000 miles. I ride this bike to on the highway mostly, no wheelies, and I donít hammer on the clutch.


Any ideas????

Thanks,
Jimmy

My 06 1000 would do the same thing.. Usually when heat soaked or cruizing slow speeds for a while. Might wanna check the clutches & steels.. Also search on gixxer forums.. I think it was more for the chatter problem, but people were drilling more oiling holes, and using some 750 parts to make the clutches act right. Worth a shot..

More than likely. Either that or your clutch slave cylinder is leaking / bypassing.

I appreciate the replies. Is there a way to check the slave cyclinder? Or is it just an r/r job?
