I have a 1995 K75 with only abut 25,000 miles on it. In about 1 out every 10 starts from stop, the clutch does not engage immediately. Rather, it engages gradually and is set in about 2 seconds. In most starts, it engages quite normally. Just to test, if I pop the clutch, it does make an abrubt start (most of the time). I have never felt it slip like this into any other gear, nor will it slip while in gear.
I'm wondering what this might be. Seems far to premature and inconsistent for a clutch. I'm thinking (and hoping) something simple with the cable (which I have read is prone to failure) or perhaps a bearing.
I'd love the input of the gear-heads on the forum before I bring it into the shop. Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.
