Cold this morning

Life after the KTM 990 :evil.... Cold today though. TKC's great in slush/snow.
Brilliant bike, the only negative is the need to buy every accessory on the market :huh .... Ohlins where are you??

I have experienced something similar on my newish 990. The clutch seems to feel soft between 3rd - 4th under acceleration. There is no fade but the lever defo feels different.
