Took my K-9 in to get the easy clutch put on, and again reminded them that my bike upon starting, coughs, dies, backfires etc.... This time they put it on the Dyno machine (cant remember what its called). went to pick it up, and I started it, and it , as usual, coughs, dies, spits, backfires.....they showed me the dyno readout, and it was almost perfect. they said they tried everything, and said its just cold natured. I guess I should just accept the diagnosis and learn to live with it. dont know anything else I could try. By the way, so far the easy clutch is amazing. I can pull it in using two fingers.
