Clutch Shudder

Any folks running a Mantic ER2 single disk have issues with shudder when starting from a dead stop? Doesn't happen always. Seems to be mostly if starting off easy in low RPM and easying into the clutch like in heavy traffic or starting on a steep incline. I've learned to work around it by changing up my techique. However, its a new clutch (aprox. 1200mi) so I want to make sure its nothing I should have the shop double check. Other than that no complaints with it. locks up nicely in all other conditions. Gracias!

I have a spec clutch in mine and pretty much the same thing. It is better than it was but still shudders at low rpm, when easing away from a stop. I realized that I have to launch it a little more aggressively, with a bit more rpm, quicker release and less time in the friction zone.

In traffic, I drive like I am on my motorcycle, roll it along and come to a full stop only when I really have to. Once in motion, I can let the clutch out at idle.

My brother has a stock clutch in his and is much more forgiving. But mine has character
