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.
