Re: Back on an LT after 3 years - clutch slave cyl question
The difference between having it in neutral at a stop, and holding the clutch in will be minimal at most. The bearing is spinning all the time the engine is running, clutch in or not. More pressure on it when the clutch is held in, but there is still the spring pressure of the slave cylinder return spring when the clutch is out, so the bearing is still under light load and spinning all the time.
So, holding the clutch in at stops contributes only slightly to the bearing wear.

No bike now, but maybe in the future.
