Ok, so yeah-I've procrastinated and my clutch has been a little off since I purchased my bike, but its ran great sooo.... now its time to do something about it-or at least once the snow flies. So I've started slipping into neutral from 1st and 2nd, it's only happened twice-but I'm pretty sure it will continue from here. I tried adjusting the clutch before but it didnt work-the bike still tries to move forward with the clutch fully engaged. So what do you guys think---yah I've procrastinated on this, but do you think I simply need new clutch plates or could it be the gears? Anyway to check for wear on these parts by simply removing the clutch cover? Thanks.

Bike moving forward with the clutch engaged is not your gears giving you a problem. Usually a cable adjustment; if not, sticky friction plates could be doing it. How about an oil change, when was the last one? Barring that, you can check the plates - drain the oil (I know some people try to do it with the bike on the sidestand and without draining oil, what a mess). Follow the manual and examine your plates. Replace 'em if you want.
