    from my short experience on my wife's f7..
    1. it's the same, just a bit different, keep your rpms up a bit
    2. you're not going to stall... BUT... if you did, the brakes would be the only thing to keep it from rolling.

    2a. the clutch is engaged only above 2kish rpms. if you park or are stopped on an incline with the engine off first gear will not hold the bike from rolling.

    1) yes
    2) yes, until you hit the brake

    I'm doing other service on my bike and and have the side engine cover off. At the same time I thought to check how the rekluse is doing. I think the Teflon pads are worn and checking the base halves I see that on one half there is a visable notch that have sharp edges. Is it safe to file that notch down?

    I remember this notch from installing but didn't want to file it if it destroys the rekluse. But now I wonder if those sharp edges of the notch is not the reason the pads look worn.

    The other half ramped surface is smooth and without any notch.
