if the clutch pack is not below the minium stack height, then I would inspect all the plates. If the steel plates are not overheated and warped, then I have had very good success with the following:
1. round up a piece of plate glass, 12x12 inch or slightly bigger, tempered would be best.
2. spray contact cement
3. full sheet of 400 wet dry sand paper.
glue the paper to the glass
lightly sand the friction surfaces of steel plates while flushing the paper with fluid of choice (I use this setup in the solvent tank). Sand each side of the plates until there are no shiny spots. Now do the same to the friction plates (LIGHTLY!) to remove most of the burnished effect on the surface of the friction plates.
Flush well with solvent, blow clean/dry, cover all plates with oil and reassemble clutch.
will be butter smooth
my 04 950ADV has started doing exactly the same thing. As soon as it warms up it disappears. I'll change the clutch push rod for a later model one as the 03 & 04 ones have an alloy multi-piece one which can compress slightly as it wears causing issues. It's a simple straight swap.
+1 Same issue..same temporary solution
When funds come available the Beastie will get a Rekluse
I was doing the same thing for that problem. But sometimes when riding with others I didn't have time to wait.After stalling and almost falling down I decided to do something about it. I found the inner steel plate had a ring worn in it and replaced it. I also cleaned the oil jet and put on an Oberon slave cylinder. I'm not sure what did the trick, but it now works smoothly and will shift into neutral easily.I used 5w BelRay fork oil in the clutch master cylinder.
