Hello All, After spending the last hour writing a full intro of myself and a review of the bike, since I am the new guy here, the board just wiped it all upon clicking the preview post button, so now I just want to see if there is anyone with the same issues as I and see if there are solutions. Throttle response - almost too instant, going through bumpy stuff I found that while even making a conscious effort to keep the throttle rolled forward, I was still adding power and lurching when I didn't want to. - I have read that this can be feathered out a bit by changing the fuel mapping? Starting - this is brutal compared to what I am used to. Even after finding the compression stroke and TDC it still takes 3 kicks or so but here comes the real killer. It will not start if it is in gear and the clutch is pulled in - ***?? I have to stop and find neutral, then begin the TDC kick procedure. I sure hope this is a "new bike" issue? Any ideas or solutions here? Getting going - - So now that the bike is started and running, finally, it has a spot during clutch release where it just magically dies. It doesn't grab and lurch forward and die, aka user error, it just dies. If I am not giving it the correct amount(more than normal) of revs and doing my absolute best effort to release the clutch properly it will just die, then I must start the entire find neutral, TDC 3+ kicks procedure all over again...ugh... I am having a good bit of buyer's remorse here, something I have never had in my 25 years of riding bikes - what gives? Do you folks have any insight on these issues? Are they solely related to this new bike? Granted I only completed break in, a few heat cycles, and a 15 minute ride afterwards but this is just saddening to me and ruined the experience of bringing it home. Meanwhile my wife just prods the switch on her new CRF230F and is leaving me in the dust before I can even find neutral... ...thoughts? and thanks!
