Default Sticking clutch solution

I have always had trouble getting my clutch plates to release after sitting for a while. The bike is very low miles, under 3000. In the past I have ridden around the block holding in the clutch while jabbing the throttle and the rear brake or doing the same on the center stand. I hated the process. Today I tried something that worked perfectly. I started up the bike, took a shop rag and tied the clutch lever in the fully released position while the bike warmed up. I slipped it into gear and voila!! No stall or jerk at all.

Do you mean always while the bike is stored or when warming it up? Having it parked or stored the the clutch always released would weaken the springs unnecessarily.
