Default Re: warm up

I'm with these guys too. Besides, I live in a mobile home park where they're serious about that 10 mph speed limit. So I let mine putter toward the exit and warm up on the way. By the time I get to Troy Road, once the lane is clear, she's warm and I can open up and take off. If I sit around and just blip the throttle, I'm just making noise and wasting my Ridin' Time.

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.
