Had the bike on its centre stand while adjusting the belt drive and found no matter what the wheel rotates even when the clutch lever is pulled in.
I have adjusted the clutch from one extreme to the other trying to get rid of it but to no avail, from having the lever operate the clutch as soon as you touch it to when the lever is almost fully closed and that includes using the adjustment at the lever and the adjustment on the gearbox. It is only catching it a little now but it is still turning the wheel.
The bike is nearly 17 years old done 51300 miles, all but 808 by me and on original clutch plates.

Try and accellerate hard in the upper gears and see if it slips. The R1 plates did 40k before needing replacements.

If you apply the brake, does the engine note change ?
If not, I wouldn't worry 01
