This happens with my clutch as well on the first ride of the day. I just keep it on the center stand while it warms up and shift back and forth from neutral to first until it releases or I wait until it settles into a nice idle, shift into first and simultaneously increase throttle and apply the rear brake.

I asked my mechanic to have a look at it and He said the clutch was in good order.

Punctuation is your friend! :think:

All you have to do is start the bike and let it warm up for a few seconds. Pull in the clutch lever and "blip" the throttle a couple of times. This will free up your clutch if everything else is working correctly. Done that with all 26 of the bikes I have owned and it worked on all of them.
