If one takes it easy for the first 10 minutes or so, that is enough. And it saves fuel, which is better for your wallet and better for the environment. The Japanese bikes I have had all played along very well, and the V11 seems to be ok with that too. My V35 Imola is a different story. It has a phase between "choke is ok" and "I'm warm enough now" in which it is inclined to stop running if I don't keep it revving. In summer it is not much of a problem, but in winter when the temperatur is down around 3°C (yes, I do ride it sometimes in those conditions...) it can be a bit critical. Letting it warm up for a couple of minutes is not a bad thing. If I were prepared to invest some money in the carbs, I might be able to sort that out too, but I have most of the parts and the notion to put together a 350 4-valve motor, which would need bigger carbs, so I'm living with that for the time being. Thanks mate I'll experiment with this and see how it goes. I've a feeling she'll still want a good warm up when it's 5C ish though. My greenie sounds a wee bit like your V35 in letting me know when she's ready to boogie ha ha. But I've got a much better map in her now though so we'll see. Cheers Ps I've called it quits on riding under 5 C unless caught out and then bloody hell I can feel every degree under that...! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
