So I've had my blade for about a year, and I've taken that time to slowly fix everything that I can. One thing that has always bugged me, that I've never known the cause of is the noise the bike makes when cold.

The bike starts fine, and purrs. But if I rev it up before I've given her a chance to warm up for a minute or so, it makes a grinding noise. It bogs like most cold carbuerated things do, but it makes relatively noise grinding sound along with it. As soon as it's warmed up, it runs perfectly fine.

Yeah, the tolerances on the 954 are a little funny, so you need to let her warm up to about 85 degrees Celcius then go on the ride. I know sometimes it isn't practical to do so, so just take it easy when you take off it she hasn't gotten to operating temp.
