clutch does not engage all the time. Example when I start the bike with the clutch handle down the bike jumps like it is not engaged. The bike is a neww Yamaha R1 with 700 miles on it. Quick Fix?

How about after that first initial grab? Because I've got an 04 500R and it does the exact same thing. But only then. It's just the clutch doesn't engage properly right on the first try. I'll start it in neutral, pull the clutch and kick it into first and the bike will jump forward before the clutch grabs. It's just one of those things.

As long as it operates normally the rest of the time and doesn't slip, you're probably fine man.

Sounds like you need to adjust your clutch at the actuator. As stated before, does it engage/disengage every other time?

Try pulling it several times instead of just once. I tried it today and it didnt kick when I grabbed first gear. If it doesn't do it after a few pulls/releases, then its definitely not an adjustment problem...cause if it is, that wouldnt affect it.
