    Hello everyone
    While holding the clutch down with first gear on and giving around 3000 RPM makes my tiger 1050 moving slightly forwards.
    Is it normal or is it a issue
    I was told that is a feature anti stall which makes sense to me but still in doubt
    Thanks guys

    Sounds like a little too much slack in the clutch cable, so not enough movement to fully release the clutch, allowing a degree of drag, check how much free play there is on the clutch lever before it starts to pull the cable
    There's no anti-stall device on a Tiger, not sure how a dragging clutch would help that!

    Why would you do that, there's bound to be some drag, if only from the oil.

    Now try engine off, in 1st gear, clutch in & push, it'll be harder than in neutral & may differ by oil used.

    Okay, to answer your question, no, this is not even remotely normal. The anti-stall comment is pure guff. And, I believe you should be able to be stopped at a red light, clutch in, and be able to rev your bike without any form of creep or drag. My 2009 is completely drag-free at any rev level.

    You may be lucky and be able to fix this with a little cable adjustment. You may however have a bad clutch cable, depending on the age and use of the bike. Check that you get positive, proportional movement at the lower actuator when you pull in your clutch. The next culprit is going to be the oil. It may be the wrong viscosity. Finally, there are reports of clutch drag from plates binding and staying dry. This requires disassembly, and treatment by overnight soaking I believe, but you'll have to search the forum or have others chime in as I've never experienced this.
