Rear wheel rolling when neutral gear?

Hi,

anyone has the same issue?

I put up the bike on the center stand and start the engine with neutral gear, then I found the rear wheel was rolling slowly. Isn't that the wheel should stop when bike is in neutral? Then I speed up to 1st gear, 2nd gear... and went back to neutral, this time the rear wheel stopped.

Is this a problem?

Hey nan.ran Thanks for your help on my problem hopefully I can be with yours. What you describe is very normal. I've owned 3 different motorcycles and they all did this. I have no explanation why. I wouldn't put my hand in there but if you did I bet the wheel would stop. Have fun and enjoy your new ride. If your ever in Jacksonville Florida USA try and get in touch. Tom

It's fine. My wheel does not spin. But I have the minimum of play in my clutch. Just don't be like me and ride it with no play in the clutch.

Tom, thanks a lot! Now I have no doubt with this, maybe next time I will try to stop the wheel to see if it can stop still. If I travel to Jacksonville Florida USA someday, I will let you know

Hey gee dubya be careful with that clutch. Just read yesterday the more play the better. To tight will lead to early clutch wear. I was just about to tighten my cable before I read this. makes sense.

I'm fine, my clutch is fully disengaged way before the lever touches the grip. It's important to determine play by feeling the clutch arm down at the cam. Wiggle it back and fourth, and it your lever will move. If the lever has about 8-10 mm of play then its all good.
