Very clunky feel in gears 1-2 when cruising. Neutral is a pain to locate sometimes. I just want smooter engagement overall. I had a buddy with a CBR1000 who's clutch was smooth like butter. Click Click is what I experienced even though I had little seat time or familiarity with his bike. I want the same experience. Spoke to Marc at Factory Pro. He stated his shift kit will resolve the aforementioned issues. Placed my order. We shall see. Love my 919 I am just trying to get her dialed in to be the riding experience I want. PC3 is installed. Fluids are new and up to date. I was told lubricating clutch cable may help. It's more the feel of the shifter on the foot I am looking to smooth out. Thanks for the prompt response. Any input you have is greatly appreciated.
You can test the clutch cable by disconnecting the end at the actuating arm and then checking the cable friction. It'll either be good or it won't be. If not stock bars, check the cable routing as that can very easily be a factor.
My guess is you'll like the F Pro bits.
I found the 919 likes lever preload more than I was used to, but then, maybe that's why I was such a hacky shifter back in the day. LoL.
Also, there's a fair bit of accumulated slop all the way through the external linkage system.
That slop manifests itself as "lost motion".
Yet another reason for some lever preload, as that takes up the lost motion.
Make sure the shifter arms are aligned, one spline out can really have an effect. The arms are supposed to be parallel.
If you have stock front springs, keep in mind the very divey front end exaggerates any "unsmoothness".
