Hi. I have a new Honda CB300F which has only done 1500kms. I've been having issues with the clutch, where the clutch lever friction point is moving out (tightening) and it turns out the clutch has been completely burned out and needs replacing. I was told by the mechanic that it's because as a new rider I've been taught to ride the clutch at friction point and drag the rear brake to stabalise the bike when slow manoeuvring, however this practice actually damages the clutch. I have done very little when it comes to practicing MOST skills, so really haven't been dragging the brake that much. I'm wondering what other people opinions are of this issue, and if anyone else has experienced it, and what exactly it is that I could be doing wrong for this to have occurred so quickly.
