Clutch issue?

So the new problem of the day on the sabre is up shifting. The bike downshifts fine. When I upshift it feels like i am going through mud. I bled the master and slave cylinder last fall. When i up shift the lever seems to float up over my shoe, but one I downshift it is fine. I have checked the linkage and it is within spec, it does not seem to be loose when I move it by hand.
I have been riding the bike for the last month or so. Trying to get ideas on what to do about it.
Bleed the master again?
Inspect clutch?
Take it so a shop?
Issue being getting it there.
any ideas?

Maybe not the clutch at all. the shift shaft has a return spring that might be out of wack.

I'll do my best here.

The shift shaft has a cer clip on the engines left side When there it keeps the shaft LEFT bound .This keeps the shift Mech.in place on the right side of the engine.(usually the clutch hides some of these parts.)

If the cer clip is removed from the left side of the shaft it can freely move to the right and disengage the shaft mech, from it's spring or the spring may have broke.


Try pulling on your shaft................... to the left and see if it moves or if it's missing that clip.
