Clutch operation is a little bit of a compromise, between light and easy lever pull versus quick engagement and disengagement. The price you pay for the easy lever pull is a little bit of drag with the clutch engaged and with a not very adjustable system Graves has the solution for you. There are other ways to address but that R&D work may be on you then.

Both my FZ1s did that, 03 and 05. Still have the 05, still does it.

I've noticed it on mine. I've gotten into the habit of before starting the bike in gear to pull in the clutch and manually rock the bike, to force the clutch to slip,
I always start the bike, then after pulling in the clutch simply blip the throttle which will break free the clutch plates. Once RPM's are back at idle, put the bike in gear. Works every time.

Similar to freeing the clutch back in the Brit days, I have also heard some put it in gear and roll backwards a bit, it' is supposed to accomplish the same thing.
