Is the clutch on the XSR quite abrupt - i.e not much transition between being on/off when engaged? Finding it trickier to shift smoothly than I was expecting...

I don't find it much different to other bikes I've owned. Saying that it'll probably takes a few miles for my brain to re calibrate for it being not exactly the same as other bikes.

Make sure the clutch lever free play is adjusted correctly, page 6-19 in the owners manual.

Also Yamaha were too cheap to fit the clutch lever with a position adjuster. The brake lever has one.

I replaced mine with an adjustable version made by V-Trec, but there are plenty of others brands.

There are loads on ebay.
