Post clutch drag sp1

hey guys I just picked up a 2000 sp1. I am having issues with a dragging clutch.

If I disengage the clutch and roll on the throttle the bike starts moving forward. I doubt this is normal. curious what is the main culprit for this on these bikes.

I do not have any shifting issues, the lever doesnt feel spongy, the clutch engages fine from a stop, the motor doesn't seem to labor when it is just idling nor will it walk forward when just idling.

im thinking lifter rod. maybe oil is too thick?

any help on this would be greatly appreciated!

It's normal behavior.
Mine does it as well and I have no problems at all with the clutch.
As long as your clutch line is bleed and the fluid good, it should be fine.
