I'm in the same boat, I also do not have alot of carb experience. But, after reading my manual and all the jetting posts here on TT. I have changed my timing, deoctopused my carb and yes started jetting. And since then my bike has really started to scream. Its good experience to get to know your bike, you can spend alot of money at the dealer and the goons in the back dont know any more than you. But they will take your money if you are not educated. Just my 2 cents

Noone wants to fiddle with their $6000 new bike, but eventually you'll find the time and the knowledge to tackle it. As Kermit said, it's not that hard.

The starting issue is a myth. Buy a bike with a happy button if you want easier starting.
The people at Yamaha dont spend millions of R and D dollars to produce a dud bike. Just buy it and ride it. They are the biggest selling bike in Australia for a reason.

I have played with the jetting and muffler (took insert out, tried some different tips, ran some sound meter checks - too damn loud!) but wound up putting it back as stock.
