Is bike shop full of crap?
My 750 has lots of miles but is new to me. In the past week i've noticed when i start it up, especially in the morning the engine stutters similar to when it's time to switch to reserve. It feels like someone kicking the transmission. I know that sounds weird but it makes sense in my head. The rpms take a hit and the quickly pop up. When trying to give it gas it really starts to happen until the motor is warm. When stuttering especially when letting off the clutch it wants to stall.
Describing it to the dealer when trying to cash in on my initial 30 days warranty (considering going for the ASC extended warranty but am not sure yet) he asked me what gas i was running. I told him 87 and he was all "That is probably you're problem, I'd never run anything less than 93 in ANY motorcycle. There is too much water and ethanol in regular 87". My bs meter went off but i'm not versed enough in bikes to know for sure.
Can someone please enlighten me before they try to take me for a "ride".
