Clutch question

Ok guys here is the deal, I have an 07 ZX10r and what seems to be the problem that feels like maybe my clutch is not disengaging all the way... In the morning when i try to move my bike while in the off position and into 1st gear if i press the clutch all the way in it should roll freely or should it have some clutch drag? It only does it when the clutch is cool off cause Once i get going and stop with the bike warmed I dont experience the drag anymore if in gear and holding the cluch in it will now roll freely .. What could be the problem? Is it normal? Also the gears are hard to get in sometime ... Help!

Sounds like it's not adjusted right and you also you need to Soak the clutch plates.

Is this only an issue when you are in gear? It's normal for there to be a little drag even with the clutch in while you are in gear with the bike off, but you should still be able to push the bike around.
