Hey. You're best off modulating the clutch lever to smooth out low speed maneuvers. I can't say I've noticed my cbr being very choppy, but the sv650 I have is pretty feral without using the clutch. They're not really like a car, having a wet clutch they can handle a bit more slippage than the dry clutch in a car, as long as you don't give be it heaps of curry while you're doing it. Plus they haven't got the driveline length or slop that cars have, so you tend to notice it a lot more.
