Hi guys I have a few questions about the bike. I currently have about 6 hours on mine. It has become extremely hard to start and stalls in a lot of corners. I am a intermidiate rider so skill is not the issue. I read somewhere that turning the choke might help but i could not find out where to start. Sometimes I chop the throttle and it dies also. When I am doing my hot lap and rolling around the track it will stall on the back sides of jumps even with the clutch all the way in, and yes the bike is warmed up. I also am having issues with the suspension. I would usually have it re-valved but I am in school and out of money. It is way to soft and feels like i am on a pogo stick. I have adjusted it a bunch and nothing seems to work. I relize stiffer springs are the solution but is there anyone who has found a set-up that is working for them? I have also been seeing a lot of peices in the oil threads. I had a 2010 last year and beat the piss out of it. It would hit false nuterals, jam into gear and had peices in the oil. It always kept going tho and had about 85 hours on it when i sold it. I wouldnt be too worried about the peices. Monitor them and if they get really bad the further investigate. I would always change the oil after 2 rides and oil filter every other so that might be why. I think 5 hours on a bike is way to long for these machines. My oil is black after 2 hard rides. My 2011 has peices but no mis-shifts so far so i am just going to keep an eye on it. Sorry for the long thread and hopefully someone can answer my questions. THANKS!
