clutch issue...I think...
Tried to find info but couldn't locate anything this specific....I'm on a 2017 RGU
Today I was on a ride with 9 other bikes. Good ride, spent about 7 hours out with a few stops in between riding. On the last stop just before we broke off to go home, we all mounted back up and got ready to go. The bike was parked and in gear, so I went through the usual deal...helmet, ignition switch, run switch, clutch, and then start. When I hit the start switch, nothing happened. Everything electronic worked so it wasn't the battery. I originally thought it was the security system not allowing the bike to crank, but I watched/heard the system disengage after the ignition switch. I tried multiple times to get crank the bike with the clutch in and it would not. Several hung back to help when they saw I was not able to get cranked. We tried a few things, but ultimately what ended up working was to put the bike in neutral and it cranked right up.
I tried again when I got home and it did the same thing. I've never had any issue with it until now and it's gone from never happening to every time. It appears that the bike doesn't see that the clutch is engaged. Has any one heard of this and if so, how do I fix it?
Also, my concern is that if they bike doesn't know the clutch is engaged, could that cause the bike to lunge forward at some point...like sitting at a red light? I started thinking on the way home and started really worrying about it.
Thanks in advance for any help!!!
