Hi Everybody! Has anybody had a dead spot between 1000 rpm

to 2000 rpm between the time you start it and the time it is fully

warmed up? Runs perfect after that. 7700 miles total on the bike.

Any help would be great. Thanks Steve

Not a problem with mine. Sounds like dealer warranty for you. Tony

Hi Steve. You might need to re-initialise the ECM by disconnecting the battery and then reconnecting it. Then start the engine and DON'T touch the throttle until the engine warms up.

7700 miles means new spark plugs unless you replaced them already. That will cure the cold start flat spot.
