    I've driven a couple of Copen's (both with new clutches) and the biting point on both was really low. Not an issue for driving or selecting gears, but low. For info can others please comment on where theirs is to get an idea if this is normal or needs adjusting.

    It’s low. More like a switch than a clutch pedal but great fun once you get used to it.

    My bike is a 2016 Suzuki Maxi with Malossi Variator, straight through exhaust etc.
    On my J880K it at a height you would expect, ie not really low.
    As you probably know, a very low take-up can means tha the clutch is very used & in a poor condition.
    I'd have it inspected & adjusted if possible. They aren't cheap, but no-one wants a 'binary' clutch.
