I just now purchased my first motorcycle. I've been a long time scooter owner - yes, I know they are no where near the same thing - but there is going to be a lot to do with this bike. I know that I am going to need tons of help and I figure the best place to ask would be right here with you guys.

I think it might just be best to start with the problems directly in front of me and then work my way through everything as I encounter it. So, initially, the bike runs. Shifts fine through all the gears, but there are two glaring problems:

1. The bike idles low and often dies off.

2. The bike has a flat spot when I am accelerating, and won't let me accelerate past 5XXX RPMs.

Any ideas on where to start with these problems?
