New BMW HP4 Slip Clutch issue
I am experiencing this issue with my new HP4. I was riding for about 50 miles and then I found that I could not downshift. The clutch lever felt like I almost had a free handful of clutch lever travel and a bite point right next to the handlebar.I had to stop at the side of the road and adjust the clutch lever screw until I finally had enough tension. The clutch lever adjust screw is adjusted almost all the way out now.
Then, when I rode the bike home several hours later, the clutch lever felt fine until about 50 miles of riding. Then, I noticed that the downshifting was difficult as described by others here.
It seems that when the bike cools down, the clutch lever tension returns to normal.
I had a 2013 S1000RR prior to this bike and did not experience this problem to the degree I am now.
I'm assuming the slip clutch is different between the two bikes.
