The way it is recommended to not fully compress the clutch lever however makes me a bit nervous, as i am worried about grinding the gears, it happened once.

Anyway i guess i will have to scratch that and start from scratch, releasing the lever fully every time like being advised and not pull it in fully and just try and figure out how much to compress so i don't crunch the gears. Muscle memory workouts the next couple of weeks :D

Just practice a bit.  Remember, bikes have sequential gearboxes, so technically (don't concern yourself with this yet) you can easily change gears without using the clutch at all.   ;)

It all sits in the timing of the gear change which will come to you in days if you practice a tad.
