I only ride this bike maybe one time a week but almost evey time the clutch plates are stuck and I have to get it rolling before releasing the clutch then lock the rear brakes up to break it loose. After that its fine for the rest of the day. Let it sit for a few days and clutch plates are stuck again. Weird. Does the EN500 have a history of stuck clutch plates or what??

My 500 always did that. Not quite to the extreme you are explaining, but a milder form every damn time. Mine was a 2008.

Pretty normal for the 500. If you park with the bike in gear, pull in the clutch lever and rock the bike back and forth until it rolls freely. Then you are good to go. I ride mine almost every day, one winter goes away, and have to do this every day.
