I don't know how new you really are so forgive me if you already know about this but, there's a little tiny switch (a "cold start button") on the right grip in front of the throttle cable housing that runs the idle faster when you first start the bike. This could be your problem. Even when its "cool" outside you may need to warm the bike up with this switch on for a minute or two. Look in the owners manual for details about the switch. (I've actually forgot about the switch after bringing my bike out of winter storage and spent 2 hours trying to figure out why the hell the thing wouldn't start...then I remembered the switch :rolleyes: )

If its even the least bit cool (say less than about 65 degrees) outside, I need to use my cold start button to even start the bike and then it needs to idle for about two minutes before I can shut the throttle without having it die.
