Had my bike on lift and noticed that when running and in 1st gear I pull the clutch in and wheel keeps turning. Not as fast but still turning pretty good. Is this normal.
Sitting at a light or something it has no pull or anything with clutch in.
Thanks for the help

I've seen brand new bikes do this, completely normal. My 2012 does it as well as my last bikes (a few zx6r's). You can probably stop the tire with your hand and hold it thats how little drag it has.

This is normal on any clutch driven transmission.

When you pull the clutch in the friction disks are simply floating but still making light contact which is enough friction to turn the rear wheel if it is off the ground. I've seen the same thing on my manual transmission car when it's on a lift and running.
