Clutch lever sticking

Has anyone had a problem with the clutch lever sticking after you pull it in and then release it? Mine doesn't do it all the time but every once and a while it will stick for just a fraction of a second. I tried to see if temperature or something else had anything to do with it but I can't seem to see any thing that makes a difference? I'm confused.

Re: Clutch lever sticking

Try a drop of teflon on the pivot point of the lever.

Re: Clutch lever sticking

Hey Ronnie,

Just wondering if you have had the fluid flushed/changed on a regular basis. If could be old and "gumming" up in there.
