Glad it was a simply fix but this is a common problem with these bikes. If they sit to long the clutch plates can get sticky.
BTW...other common problems...loose coolent hose clamps resulting in water leaks (another easy fix) and the clutch rod seal leaking oil. If you see oil dripping from under the shifter side engine cover down by the kick stand your clutch rod seal is leaking. The seal costs $4 at the dealer and you can replace it yourself in about an hour. Not hard to do.
