Ive never had a stall problem on my 08 1098 but having to give this thing gas to get it started is getting old. I know I know, but man after owning six bikes two now being twins this is the only one with a starting problem. Yes it does stay on a tender when not ridden. Sorry to bitch but man this is getting old. Seems as though its getting harder to start. Even giving it gas it still goes through a couple cycles.
