When was the last time you checked the valves? Mileage? Any issues with it starting? tight valves symptoms are hard starts and rough idle when cold. Excessively tight valves will create nice blue fireballs out your exhaust too.

28k miles, never checked the valves since I just bought it a month ago. Still learning about bike maintenance. I'm good with a cage.

It starts up fine, but I HAVE to use the choke till it warms up. Once it's warm it idles fine...well, kind of hard to tell if its rough idle due to the twin. but once it's warm it won't die on me at idle.

Taking it to HOP tomorrow to get a tire. Might see if they'll do a little diagnostics on it while its there.

i;ve learned to deal with it, its the nature of the beast. forged pistons and primitive open loop fuel injection will do that. also the jumpy-ness can be solved with a PC3 and tune.

I just realized why you post on my bike threads. Just saw your avatar pic! What year do you ride?

Remcycle, Pretty much the same with my '98 Triumph and it's non adaptable EFI. Same RPM range also when under light load and light throttle. The air is just denser so the engine runs a bit leaner.

Also check for any possible vacuum leaks. I had a TB gasket fail and just that little leak added some jerlyness.
