    During riding if u rev the engine hard without pressing cluthch the engine revs up and ur speed remains the same this is a very obvious indication, other indication might be observed with no jerk on hard shifting etc. Do u have any abnormal feeling in ur ride?
    specially while engaging and disengaging the clutch during shifting ?

    can you guide what might be the problem when you are in trafic jam and you are in any gear and stopped bike still keeps you pushing untill the engine stalls ? even adjusting the Clutch do not helps and feels like bike is still pushing.. ? is that a bad clutch which keeps on engaging even you have pressed its lever completly ???

    That too is the symptom of problematic clutch system, but it can also happen with poor quality clutch plates, friction plates, clutch hubs. If u r experiencing it with Chinese engines then its quality issue but with some time Japanese brands with stock parts are observed to have this issue too which can be sorted out by using proper grade 4t specific lube oil.

    That doesn't seems t be issue associated with clutch system, seems to be Carb adjustment or ignition related issue.
