Clutch problem? Maybe
Hello motohouston family
I purchased a new bike about a month ago. I changed out the brake levers and clucth levers this week. I also changed out the grips which made me loosen up the throttle cable to change it out.
Here is where the issue was noticed. I went to start the bike up and my bike started with the clutch being held. I owned a couple of Gsxr before and I know that you have to hold the clutch in to start it. I also noticed that with the bike on the bike stand in first gear the rear tire spend and the mph stays around 10 without me touching the throttle. I have turned the adjuster next the clutch lever but it doesn’t help.
Can anyone help me with fixing this problem. The bike is a 2004 Gsxr 1000.

Start the bike. Put it in neutral.
Does the tire spin?
Now pull in the clutch and put it in gear.
Holding the clutch pulled in does the tire spin?
While still holding the clutch,carefully try to stop the tire with your foot.
Can you stop it?
Get on the bike and ride it down the street.
In 3rd gear at about 20-25mph, carefully give it a handful of throttle.
Does the engine seem to rev higher than the bike seems to accelerate?

In neutral the tire does not spin.
If I put it in first gear while holding the clutch the tire spins.
I can stop the tire with my foot but the min I let it go it starts to spin again.
I couldn’t ride it down the street because I took the front wheel off to get a new tire before I saw your post.

It's fine.. There will be a little friction between the clutch plates if its in gear even with clutch pulled... So with no resistance whatsoever the tire will start to move
