Just bought this bike this week, road to work and in the morning the gear shift was hard to shift and jump and stalled out in 1st gear finally got it so I could get home. Check clutch lever really loose feeling open up installed DOT 4 still wont tighten up or shift easlyin to gear. Any help would be helpful....Thanks Tom

Might want to bleed the system if the reservoir level dropped way down and air got in.

More importantly, if there is air in the clutch line, find out how it got there. Bleeding it out won't fix what caused it to get in there in the first place - unless the level was so low that it got pumped in from the reservoir.

so what is the process for this, never done this before, or is it something that should be done by a dealer
