Default Re: Normal Pedal Riding with clutch disengaged

As was said, there will always be some parasitic drag from the rotating components of the engine and chain/sprocket friction. Just the nature of the beast.

It's a dirty job but if you really want resistance free riding you can always just remove the master link and the engine drive chain. I'd carry some latex gloves or some rags to wipe your fingers. Like I said, it's a dirty job.
