Ok, oil change is done (2 weeks ago in fact).
coffee grinder still there, but I havent drilled the basket yet. that will have to wait for a long weekend.
Have determined another issue exists, and may be related. either hot or cold, the clutch actually has a fair amount of drag when lever is pulled. I find there is considerably more friction when trying to roll the bike with it in 1st, and clutch pulled, as opposed to rolling it with trans in neutral. You can actually feel when the clutch gives up its grab when trying to push it. its not impossible to move, just fair amount harder.
I am also experiencing some difficulty shifting when warm (like clutch is not fully disengaging). Cold shifts are smooth and easy. this is shifting either direction. Oil is between the lines on the sight glass when on center stand, and is Rotella 15w-40.
Am I looking at a warped clutch plates? or is this still associated with coffee grinder syndrome?
Just want to know if I should get clutch parts before pulling the basket to drill it and change them at same time.
