Is it typical of the TW200 clutch to sort of grab as it reaches the final point of engagement? I bought my 2006 TW used with only 605 miles on it. Clutch grabs at final engagement point. Also seems to have a lot of jerk when shifting from neutral to first especially when cold. Does it some even when hot. Are these things normal? Thanks.

Yup, pretty much par for the course. Some oils lessen this. I run a synthetic auto oil, Shell Rotella I believe. It does not suggest a problem, seems that with some oils the clutch plates are less inclined to release fully. Gerry

Be safe my Friend......

Check your clutch spring down by the case where the cable attaches......also,check the clutch cable adjustment.... a.) at the handlebar and b.) down by the case where the clutch spring is. I would advise you go to the TWdiscussion forum,but it seem to be having issues at the moment?.
