YES! New to bikes. The walks round video I got of the 08 R6 I'm going to buy, the rear wheel spins when revving. Is this normal or is it a clutch problem.

Re: Why does the motorcycles rear wheel spins while revving the engin?

It's normal and will spin some when reving it in neutral...In first too...

I'm not really sure but I assume there is still very slight load on trans/clutch? Everything inside is still spinning, just not engaged. Meh...

All I know is that it's normal...
