Default Re: warm up

I dont usually need to choke when starting, but it does sometimes take 2 bumps to get started because I have good compression. even if I do choke it, it takes 2 bumps anyway. when its warm it fires on the first try. But I usually start my bike in an alley behind my house, and I pull the clutch in and let it idle for a couple seconds. I have two quick corners to turn before I get out on the street, and she is warmed up by the time I get there. Sometimes I also have to tweak the throttle once or twice after the engine turns over, but other than that, she starts pretty easy.
