Clutch oddities

Just installed new clutch plates and springs and did a first good ride yesterday and experienced an odd symptom... as the engine heated up encountering Melbourne traffic the travel of the clutch lever got progressively longer. As in, the clutch lever went from immediate clutch engagement to having no resistance for half the travel before engagement.

As the engine cooled down after I got home, it went back to normal. Am going to change the oil and bleed in a sec. but not sure if it explains the symptoms.

Anyone encountered something similar?
