Default sticky clutch lever...problem?

Hey, I've noticed that my clutch lever sticks a little. Shifting is fine and smooth, but the lever is a bit tight and sticks sometimes. Is this of some concern or should I just live with it? I have about 3/8 freeplay on the lever....

Thanks

does it get caught a little then you have to apply some pressure?

Yeh mines the same, might be worth changing the cable. But being so tight it'll probly break soon anyway lol

Ya, and check that it isn't being pinched somewhere.

Yes, that is exactly what happens especially when I shift into gear.

Lube the cable and the pivot point for the lever.
