No engine braking in first gear
Hi, guys. When the bike is started up and revving high, do you guys lose engine braking?
Whenever I start my bike up I have no engine braking in first gear... in fact, if I have the clutch out (and no throttle) the bike will start moving of its own accord.. enough to get me up reasonably steep hills. Once the bike is warmed up the engine braking in first returns. Is this something that is common to all z650s?
Also, I've noticed that my bike can sometimes lurch when it's not warmed up. Like, if I hold the throttle open near the on/off boundary the bike will sometimes lurch heavily (i.e. continually accelerate and then decelerate).
Any help would be greatly appreciated, guys!
