Hi,

(It might be general knowledge so sorry for noob question) when I lift rear wheel on a lift, shift to first gear and press the clutch, the wheel is still spinning. With very little force though and when bike is standing it does not have a power to move it (you cannot even feel while on the bike) but still - is that normal?

Thanks

My bike does the same.
To my knowledge this is perfectly normal.
Despite having the wheel disengaged from the power train, the dynamics of the spinning discs in the clutch in close proximity to the stationary discs, while drenched in oil means some minute torque gets transferred through.

Nice, I used to wonder about this myself, lol.
Especially since the rear wheel would rotate a little by itself when I had it jacked up after servicing the chain and powering it on to do final checks.
