I am not completely sure if you are talking about the clutch lever which does not operate as smooth as expected, or the switch lever.
In general, this should not be related to the QS when you are not using the QS in that situation. The QS is deactivated by any clutch operation during shifting.
What may be, that this is some impact of the original F900 clutch hardware which might be equipped to your bike, or maybe mis-adjusted freeplay of the clutch lever, which can cause the clutch not to open completely. Bike is manufactured 2021, right?
In what way it does not operate smooth, the lever itself or the bike hopping in the friction zone?
