    Please help my bike will sometimes grab a little just hard enough to stall when I put it into 1st gear, Hot or cold. It happens about 3 out of 10 starts. after moving it back n forth a few times its fine. any ideals on whats going on? its embarrassing to say the least. thx a bunch.

    Sounds like clutch adjustment. Could either be the MC/lever or the clutch itself. I assume you mean it starts normally then when you grab the clutch and put it in gear it lurches forward and stalls?
