Yesterday i bought my first yamaha, its ´08 450f. Today i ride it a bit and discovered that when im stopped and on 1st gear then i cant get neutral when the motor is running(goes hardly and directly to 2nd) and when i gas, then the bike wants to go forward.
the cable is not too loose and clutch basket dont have tohose grooves so i dont know why does it do that.
