I was out on a 2015 model CB500X recently and had some strange behaviour from the clutch. I had been riding for a couple of hours and stopped at a roundabout. I pulled in the clutch to change to 1st and the lever stuck - I had to manually push it back. After a couple of minutes of trying - the clutch leaver returned to normal and it hasnt repeated again (yet). Its IS new and due for a 600 mile service. Has anyone seen this sort of behaviour before and if so, any suggestions?
Thanks in anticipation..

Sounds like it could be dangerous if the problem was reversed and you couldn't stop. I would have it back in the dealership asap
