I did some searching but didn't seem to find much on the subject. My friction point or club grab seems to have moved to the very end of my clutch lever. I don't believe I'm experiencing any slippage or anything of that nature. I figured this is from the clutch breaking in? I now have 750 miles on my 09.
I'm new to the larger bikes and have mostly been a car gearhead all my life so any advice on basic maintenance is appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
Edit: btw I picked this bike up a few weeks ago when it had 415 miles on it.

Reason: add info
Have you done the initial service yet (500 mi)? The initial service should include oil/filter change, plus checking/adjusting cables, etc. The clutch is one of the things to be adjusted. IIRC the manual should list specifications on clutch playl to help with adjustment.

Maybe the jam nut is loose, and allowed the adjustment to change. It shouldn't have moved. As far as I know a clutch doesn't have to break in. During the first couple of engage disengage cycles, the friction discs and plates "mesh/wear" together. It begins the cycle of wearing out from there. I can't imagine that it wore down that fast, unless you ride the clutch or something.
