Hey everyone, been lurking here for about a week now and reading up on some posts. Lots of great info, looking forward to getting to know you all.

I bought my first ever bike about a 1.5 weeks ago and it was a blue R3. So far just taken it around the block a few times to get comfortable. LOVE it so far!

Will be asking a few questions here and there so please be patient with this noob :)

Thanks! Was out riding today - really starting to get the hang of shifting. I find the clutch doesn't really grab until the lever is almost half way out. Is that just me or is there maybe something wrong?
You can adjust that. Google "adjust friction zone" and you will get (first one that popped, I didnt read it too much, just wanted a quick example) this:

EDIT: Nothing "wrong" with it, was just adjusted that way before it was sold to you.
