Hi All.
Like many others after install of new map I have been having starting problems, cold and hot.
It now takes at least 3-5 pushes of starter to fire up.
I read through this forum that releasing the clutch leaver until clutch is almost engaged would help.
Since I am an instrument tech by trade I bypassed the clutch lever switch which meant clutch was fully engaged but in neutral.
I can now start the bike first push of button.
If I remove the bypass the bike turns over but won't fire.
Can anyone please explain why engaging the clutch helps with starting
