hello everyone, so rode my 1981 Ironhead the other day after fixing starting issues and noticed it was creeping when I had clutch pulled in. so I did a clutch adjustment by the manual and decided to check it by putting in 1st gear and pulling in clutch to see if it would roll, it did not. Am i checking the right way or should bike be running to check thank you

Should be running to check. Even a perfectly adjusted clutch will have resistance to rolling when off. In my experience, a well adjusted1981 clutch will likely have some creep due to wear on the clutch basket and the clutch plate ears and cogs.

Also note warped clutch plates will cause creep even when the clutch is adjusted by the book.
