    Likely a poor description of a slight issue. When engaging the clutch, there seems to be a slight delay from partial engagement and full engagement. With lever fully released. Sort of a "2 stage" effect. From a stop or on some upshifts. Not noticeable on more rapid upshifts. New springs alleviated some of it, but I probably need to check the plates.

    I had to read through all the comments and posts, I'll try to comment as they progress.

    This was apparently in reference to the fact that this is posted in the 2-cylinder Engine/Drivetrain/Clutch forum.

    Introducing the idea of the 2-cylinder GR650 Tempter. Yes, they DID continue with the 4-cylinder GS650 in 1983.

    This is true.

    This may have been a reminder that not all GSes were 4-cylinders by mentioning the 400 and 450, but was incomplete by also forgetting to mention the GS250, GS300 and GS425.

    Can you follow the train now?
