Racing on Sunday I noticed that when i was warming the bike up in neutral in about 40 degree weather when i revved it the rear wheel would start to roll. Slowly yes and would stop at idle. Issue or not?

I dont think that the weather would have anything to do with it. Good bearings are a GOOD thing...check your chain, it may be a tad on the loose side.

The viscosity of the oil actually provides enough force to drive the wheel. You can thank grayracer for the answer to that one. :devil:
