2007 zx6r problem

It's been about a week since i rode it and everything was fine. today it fired right up and when i go to put it into first gear it's like i don't have the clutch lever pulled in and it jumps forward. when i pull the clutch lever it appears to be working but obviously it's not disengaging. any ideas where i should look first?????????

you havent ridden it much, sounds like clutch plate is just sticking

Put it in gear, pull the clutch lever in and rock the bike back and forth to loosen up the clutch plates, then start the engine.

You might need to adjust the clutch cable. Also look at the cable to make sure there is no damage.

Depends on how low. If your oil level is good then I would take it to a shop for safety sake. I have let my bike sit for 3 weeks when I was offshore and had no issue.

a "little" low then i dont think. but i think the oil just needs to circulate

try moving in 2nd gear, or take it up a few gears even 6th gear and release it. and then try 1st gear again

less than an 1/8"

i disconnected the clutch lever then took off the oil fill where i can see the clutch springs. when i move the lever on the engine case if moves very freely and i see no movement on the springs at all.

There is a mechanical advantage with the clutch hand lever. So you shouldn't be able to move it by hand.
