    Hard to find neutral, clutch drags in gear, clutch master and slave bled, feel at lever improved, no change at shifter or in gear.

    Any ideas?

    Not sure if I understand your problem correctly. When's the last time your oil was changed?

    Just changed, mobil 1 50 miles ago. Bike is new to me.

    When in gear, noticable in first, pull in clutch, still wants to creep forward. And while running trying to move into neutral from first or second requires effort abd usually jerks past neutral.

    Theres really no adjustment on the 1125 clutches, id try bleeding the clutch system and make sure if the clutch is weeping or not. And I believe all 1125's are kinda hard to find neutral on. Not sure I would call it difficult but its definitely different than my xb or other bikes Ive had.

    That sounds a lot like some of what i was experiencing when my clutch weep got real bad. I would check there. As for finding N my bike was only hard to find it when i had the clutch weep.

    Only fix for clutch weep is to either try and re o-ring the stock slave cylinder (will just start leaking again) or bite the bullet and purchase a ebr or oberon kit and rebleed the system. Im really happy with my EBR kit very nicely made no more aluminum slave

    More or less what 8 was asking, ebr or oberon.

    Seems the oberon fairly more expensive than the ebr

    Gotcha, what I really like about the ebr kit is the sleeve is stainless steel not aluminum like the oem I think oberons is all aluminum too.
