The manual is pretty good, although it's nice to have somebody experienced looking over your shoulder if you are a novice like me.
Just an observation on the starter clutch thing - I noticed that if I stop the engine via the red "stop" button, instead of using the key, engine kick-back is greatly reduced. I do not know why, but it is. Others have mentioned this in the DR650 thread, but noone has been able to tell us why the engine behaves this way.
Street bikes for the street. Dirt bikes for the dirt. Let's keep it that way.
