Wanted to ask a couple noob questions as I've recently got my Monster 659 (Australian LAMS model) and noticed a couple quirks, wondering what is normal.

1. The clutch isn't very smooth when the bike is cold. After few takeoffs, the clutch seems to warm up and get smooth again. This normal?
2. I'm getting around 110kms of CITY driving before the fuel light comes on. Does this seem unusually low?
3. Finding neutral is kinda tricky. The usual little tricks that help (when moving, a little throttle etc), but still, bit difficult. Will this loosen up when I put some kms on it? (only got 1500kms on clock).

Any help appreciated!

I'm not sure about your fuel economy, but I have a 2017 M821 and my clutch feels a little more difficult to engage when the engine is cold. And finding neutral while stopped is difficult before it's warmed up as well. I've read other threads that say it's pretty common.

I have to bleed the clutch on my monster at least twice a riding season. My 1098 was the same way. I've not had the problem on an aircooled model.
