S2R - Clutch not fully disengaging engine
I have a 2006 S2R 800 and the clutch lever doesn't seem to completely disengage the engine when trying to roll the bike around in 1st gear. Finding neutral is easy enough, and it shifts nicely, although it goes into 1st gear with a smidgen of a clunk.

I cleaned up the clutch slave, flushed the fluid and changed the oil, but it's mostly the same.

The bigger issue is that when I start it in gear, the bike will move forward a bit. I can hold it back with my legs, and once I run it a bit, the issue lessens. But I wonder how I would know if the slave cylinder is moving enough? Or is it something else?

Slave cylinders can weep enough to only evaporate the leaking fluid via engine heat. Master cylinders can leak. Bleed nipples can crack from over torquing. All introduce air and lose fluid, so not all leaks are obvious.
Too heavy an oil can cause clutch drag as much as auto oil can cause slip.
Completely purging the system of air can be more difficult than one thinks as tiny air bubbles can get lodged in nooks and crannies. Bleeding methods for brakes and clutches have been widely discussed and worth a search here for some innovative methods including bleed tools, vacuum method, syringe methods, sonically releasing bubbles and cable tying the lever overnight. Ime these issues can occur with any motorbike.
That said the slave cylinders have been a known issue for Ducati.

My S2R has clunked into first since new, and it has 36k miles on the clock now. It what multiplayers clutches do.

Put the bike in neutral when you push it around and the problem is gone. Huh?

Seems like it does everything else correctly.

If you can find neutral easily at a stop, with the engine running, that's as good as it's going to get.

Honestly, you shouldn't be starting it in gear, that's not safe and you're just making life more difficult for the starter.

it has been suggested it is unique to certain monsters
because of http://www.adige.eu/public/ENG/products/aptc.asp
with its wet APTC 'slipper clutch'

Nope.

Two things, though.

If you're not using a motorcycle-specific oil, that's a problem.
What oil are you using?

And if your clutch has Barnett aftermarket plates, that's a problem.
Unlikely, as you can find neutral, if you have Barnett plates and the engine's running you can't.

In my 750 I used a fully synthetic moto oil of a very good local brand and it clunked badly into first and dragged in use. That same oil works beautifully in dry clutch 900's, 1000's and 1100's. Changed to another full synth brand and it was much better. Both good brands, but its been reported that the wet clutches are oil sensitive to brand additives and grade.

Sounds like your bike is just fine.  Wet clutches do drag do to the oil, particularly when cold.  It wouldn't hurt to remove the slave and inspect, then bleed the system for peace of mind.

That's the thing about full synthetics...they don't contain much in the way of additives. That's why they can do their job for so long without breakdown.

I wonder how the new gen of Duc wet clutches perform?

All this is just wondering. It seems like there's really no problem with convict's bike.

The only new clutch that had issues to my knowledge was in the Hyper 821, but they updated the pack which fixed it.

The well regarded local Penrite brand oil has a lot of zinc in it among other things. It doesnt suffer from the big bore blow-by that Motul full synth can, but it is a bit heavy for some wet clutches. Some classic big bore racers were avoiding Motul due to bad oil loss and using Penrite instead, but they probably have dry clutches. My 750's clutch hates it but likes the Motul, Castrol or Shell full synth 10-40.

Are all these 10w base stocks?
