i was in the process of flushing my coolant out and decided to leave it in 1st gear running on the rear stand to warm up faster...long story short i forgot to put it to neutral and turn the ignition off at the key. When i turn the bike on the rear wheel started spinning and now my wheel spins even with clutch engaged. any help much appreciated. thanks

i also added more oil to it but over filled....already loosened the drain plug to let some oil out but it was a little bit better....drove around the block and seems fine.

Isn't the wheel supposed to move when the clutch is engaged?

If you have it in first gear with the clutch ingaged you have two options...wheels spins, or bike stalls. Can't have both...

no, when you pull the clutch lever the wheel shouldnt spin because the engine is disengaged. Did you try adjusting your clutch cable? Did it break? is it attached to the clutch on the engine?

Its just the friction that still exists ... just like your brake pads always drag a little so does the clutch pack

:+1::iamwith:

it will spin slightly, especially after leaving it in gear and then taking it out. i run my bike on the stand in 1st gear to warm up my chain and my rear wheel spins very slowly holding in the clutch or after i put it in N (but only if start revving the engine it spins very slowly). this has happened on both my bikes - '05 and '08. both when the bikes were brand new and now used. i have tested other rr's that ive had in my garage, and they did the same. so i stopped worrying and looking into it.
tenjin explained it best for technicality.

Again you are fine ... I bet when you disengage the clutch (pull in lever) you can put your foot on the wheel and stop it

well, yours is alot more excessive than mine. try tightening the clutch cable. mine does not spin that fast.

My bad. I didn't read that it was still on the bike stand. Put the bike on the ground and let the clutch go. It will stall. Tenjin is 100% correct:+1:

Unless you can notice it trying to pull away from you when you are sitting at the light in gear you have nothing to worry about... perfectly normal, clutch plates with oil around them will transmit some torque to the wheel, same theory as a torque converter in your car.
