    I find my bike is somewhat stall prone when I ride it cold. Usually it is much more forgiving after reaching operating temp.

    I have done both. If I push the lever normally it goes first, and second. Then for each shift I need to push it down a little and it goes into the next gear.

    It appears my issue is a cable adjustment, I can get it to release by using vice grips. At least somewhat, but it having some resistance is natural when the oil is cold.

    How do I get the clutch back in?

    I can't seem to get the metal plate far enough in to put back the metal wire into its little slot.

    is there some trick to this?

    Does polarity of fuel gauge wires matter?

    My fuel gauge didn't work, so I swaped the wires. Then the gauge showed the tank was full, and I was happy. But now it seems the gauge always shows full, which isn't exactly what I intended.

    On my GS1000G I just ZIP-tied it to the original holes, and connected it with waco221's (yes, the ones for lamps and such). Not pretty, not permanent, but works suprisingly well.
