I've got a 2010 Buell Blast I've been using as my main bike for zipping around town and some exploring, and over the past few weeks the warm up period has gotten really rough.

Specifically, I'll start the bike up and let the motor warm up while I'm going through some basic checks (tire pressure, etc.). After a few minutes, the engine will die and I'll have to hit the starter again.

If I try to take the bike out before it's fully warmed up, it will misfire when I try to give it more gas and eventually flood or sputter out.

When I say "rough", I mean that there are misfires in the cylinder. I can feel it sputtering when I try to give it a little more gas during the warm up period.

Once the engine is fully warmed though, it's fine. Hardly any problems.

There's a very simple and easy thing you can do to prevent that. It's a trick I learned recently and applies to your bike year and model. Even the dealer mechanics or the factory designers don't know the secret.

What you have to do is...oh, wait, there's someone at the door. I'll get back to you....
