K12GT cold running

Recently my K has started having running issues when cold. Almost like my two strokes used to years ago ... the engine will start fluffing and a quick dip of the clutch and a blip of the throttle clears it.

It's like this off and on until it's warmed up.

Anyone else had this issue?

Re: K12GT cold running

Right guys, I finallly found out what was causing the fluffiness when cold, turns out the dealership left my battery terminals loose which seemed to cause the problems, perhaps upsetting some sensors with spurious information?
