ok well i am new to the bike scene but anyway i just bought a 08 cbr600rr with 6 miles so it was considered new- i rode it down my driveway into my other garage and when i tried to leave there it kept going dead when i would try to shift it into gear and i mean straight cut off- there is also a little white smoke coming out after about 2 min. of warmup. is this normal or did the dealer sell me a bad used bike

yes, if you try to put the bike into gear with the kickstand down it will shut the bike off.

yes it the kickstand being down will cut the bike off if it's in gear.. white smoke is normal while you're in break in period..

On a serious note, you may wanna take the MSF Safety course. Motorcycles are very dangerous if you dont know what youre doing. Think safety.

Be safe out there - make sure you break the bike in properly.

I had problem with water affecting the side stand switch, could think what the hell was going on.
