    is this normal when cold ? Or shall I adjust the clutch ?

    The FJR always draws a crowd when engaging first gear.

    Try holding the clutch in for a bit longer for the first engagement.

    Thanks. Thought that should do it. Not really ridden it on the road yet - just finished repairs to body, so just starting and punting a few metres around the property. Roadworth tomoz and then a VIV. 1 month I recon, and I should be terrorising the locals

    Hi Yes when cold I do let it idle with the clutch in and I rock the bike back and forward to free the clutch plates before I engage first gear. John
