Hi...New to this site...I have a question to those more experienced. I just acquired my brothers 2003 VStar 650 Classic. It sat for about a year and would not start. I had the carb cleaned out and tank flushed. Now it seems to run good, I have only about 40 miles on it so far. My problem is it semms to stall a lot after I can to a complete stop and try to get going again in 1st gear. The gears do not engage until the clutch is almost compoletely out. How do I adjust this? The cable seems OK....

Need practice

Had a friend look at it. Seems the bike is running fine...Just idling too high. I am either letting the clutch out too slowly or not giving it enough gas. I will continur to practice on the side streets before I take it out full time...I am really loving the freedom you feel when riding....Its like a natural high...Its really very hot in Florida right now. Can't wait until winter to ride in a better temp...So far 70 miles on it, Put more on it when I can...
