How old are the plates in your clutch?
If they are the original plates, how many miles do they have on them?
Often when friction plates get worn, the engagement point gets narrower.
If you have access to a digital caliper, you can pull the friction plates and measure the plate thickness. If they have worn below the minimum service limit, you'll need to replace them.
If you haven't bled or flushed and bled your clutch linkage, it would thing as well.
Only from the standpoint of clean fluid and smooth actuation.
