Toped up the Engine oil today as it was showing minimum, took it for a spin and got about four miles and suddenly found that the clutch was hard to pull in. Stopped the bike to check the level and found it to read just below Max. As the level of oil was the only thing I had done to the bike decided to drain some out, pushed the bike over a drain and let some out till the level was in the middle of the two marks. Fired it up went for a spin and the clutch worked fine most odd.

Did you fill it to the max while the engine was cold ? Take it for a ride first so the engine can warm up then fill the oil in.

"pushed the bike over a drain and let some out" You'll have Greenpeace after you.
