Stalling

Hi Guys

I just got my G310R delivered today, first bike. I took it out for half an hour but I keep stalling from stop pretty often. Any advice?

Thanks in advance!

Sounds like you are probably letting the clutch out too quick with not enough revs - its a progressive thing. From idling, when you take off, begin to open the throttle gently as you release the clutch lever gently and smoothly while the revs increase. You'll get used to it.

As a first time rider also, one thing that helped tremendously was the advice "don't increase throttle, just have it steady and learn to release the clutch". Not sure if I heard it from the forums or from a friend, but it helped me not stall until I got the hang of it.

As everyone has mentioned, it just takes practice. The friction zone on the clutch is pretty far out in the reach of the lever so it takes some getting used to.

Yep, stalled a couple of times early on, as mentioned above you'll just have to practice, and give it a bit of throttle (not too much, not to little).

To simplify the process, truth be told you don't need throttle for the bike to move. If you're just learning, try JUST learning where the friction zone is on the bike. Let the clutch out until the bike starts to move. Immediately pull the clutch back in. Brake. Repeat...Repeat...Repeat...Repeat.

Once you get that down, then you can begin to add throttle. Keep in mind, throttle means nothing to you if you can't get the clutch action down confidently.

Be patient, be nervous, be embarrassed, and enjoy every minute of it. You're practicing a skill that you'll have for the rest of your life. It's awesome!!!

I’m finding the 310 does stall, very easily...and is then sometimes hesitant to start first time. As many say, overtime with practice, you’ll find that biting point with just the right amount of revs to pull away. A mate whose been riding motorbikes all his life, kept slagging me off for stalling...until, he had a shot of the bike, and he stalled everytime too! So, it’s definitely something you need to get use to

I have seen this mentioned in a YouTube road test as well (easily stalled by an experienced rider.)
