My 2017 S - the clutch engages about 1cm off the grip making it really difficult to slip the clutch, i.e., I can't pull the clutch in and keep fingers on the grip behind the lever because the clutch won't completely disengage. I've done some reading around for fixes on this and the only solution I have found so far is to replace the clutch arm on the engine with the shorter clutch arm found on the DR650. I can't help wondering on that fix if it would be possible to inadvertently spin the clutch release camshaft too far and damage the mechanism by doing so. Those posts were a bit dated (2008, 2009) so I am wondering if anyone has come up with another fix in the mean time. Worth noting perhaps; I am using a RSM medium lever. Edit: I just went to a nearby dealer to check out the price on getting an arm but in speaking to service advisor I found out this mod doesn't work. I looked at an arm on DR on the showroom floor and there is, visually at least, no difference between the arm on a DR and a DRZ. He told me two customers had tried this mod this spring and both reported that there was no discernible difference in the actuation or feel of the clutch. Perhaps this used to work when there was a difference in length between the DR arm and the DRZ arm.
