I am suddenly having an issue where my bike occasionly flames out just as I am crossing the start gate. It also seems like I have stalled it on the track a couple of times when I shouldn't have also. But the starting line issue is just bizzare and I can't figure it out. I hold the throttle farely wide open, attempt to let the clutchout as easy as I can and it seems like right when I launch it is like someone hit the kill switch. It is getting embarrising and I am on the verge of throwing away the season points race in my class. Anyone got any ideas?
