    Kawasaki Estrella 250cc clutch weirdness

    Hey folks,

    I have a little estrella that I resurrected from a three year hibernation a tank of gas or so back.

    I've been through the carb, valves, brakes etc and have rode it this week because it needs riding before it's ready for sale and I have noticed an issue: clutch and downshifting from 3rd to 2nd gear, clutch out, and instead of going to 2nd the bike freewheels for maybe 5 seconds and then clunks into second.

    When it does so, the shifter also makes a little nudge. It's a bit dangerous, especially on downhill turns in the wet.

    Any ideas before I start tearing into it?

    Turns out it's a combo of the small bike vs my clown feet. I was leaving my foot on the lever after those shifts

    Oh, there ain't been any lockdown here.

    Panic isn't allowed, by our benelovent dictatorship, so 0 deaths.

    As a result; bars are open and this chicken wants to fukme for $20

    No chance, but looks good on the small kawa

    Shit, I don't know, I rode round this country on new KTM machines before there was a dealer, rode all fashion of bikes and this farty 250cc gets more attention than all, including the ZRX.

    After 30 secs this indo/Indian girl wanted in, as shew wanted to do me. For free
