Yes I am having the same issue. Let us know what you find out.
So what do you do? You force it to the lower gear with the drive engaged or does it eventually disengage? The clutch not disengaging is very strange since it is all mechanical. I don't believe they changed to a hydraulic clutch in 14 did they? I could see the clutch not engaging as a more probable issue with the cable or mechanism sticking.here's some background info.
... go to down shift when coming up to a stop the clutch will not disengage. this happens in 3, 2 and 1 gear...
Don't do that. Modern bikes have teflon-coated cable sheaths and do not require lubrication. In fact, lubricating teflon-coated cables can result in the lube itself breaking down the teflon, and then you'll need to replace it.I would lubricate the cable.
Do you mean that they didn't acknowledge the issue you described, or they were unable to find a cause for the issue you described?picked up the bike and to no surprise, was told "cant find a issue"
In the FJR community we have "sticking clutch plates" too. The solution is to pull the clutch pack, separate the plates and soak them in fresh oil overnight.I have gotten use to blipping the throttle that seems to free the clutch. It happens in the higher gears on my bike. It has happened since day 1. It is not the clutch cable if it was it would do it all the time. It feels like the clutch plates are sticking together. An old Triumph, BSA thing years ago. We will see what my dealer says when I take it to him. I have tried different oils.
