Apart from being rather disrespectful (maybe I can improve on my 45 years of motorcycling 'experience' before I die') it would seem that BMW don't agree with you.

what are you saying? it makes no sense. if anyone is arrogant, it is you. one cannot have starting issues at a red light, period; the bike is already hot. one cannot have stalling issues at a red light, period. are you out of your mind? I am sick of people posting such stupid comments, and pretending to be so clever!

as you love riding, you need to love you bike

As an inexperienced driver (only been in the saddle since 1981) and with minimal experience of dirt bikes (only ridden as an army dispatch rider for 8-9 years), I have to admit I'm a little suprised that I used to stall my Husqvarna MC258A (a 250 cc two stroke with automatic transmision, i.e. no clutch) more often than my G310GS. I had the Husky as my service bike in the Swedish army and I have to agree with you that clutching on the Husky was an advanced technique. The MC258A required frequent changes of its clutch oil to get the centrifugal clutches (there was 4, one for each speed) to work properly. Good thing was I learnt how to open up the transmision with my eyes closed, even in the middle of winter, deep in the forrests The ski support arms were however a little bit annoying because they were in the way when opening up the bikes left side

I disagree with the "inexperienced rider" statement as well. I have been riding 38 years, have owned 32 bikes, and the 310GS stalls very easy when you are not used to the clutch. I sell BMW bikes and watch almost every single test rider stall the bike (and there are many experienced riders test riding them). Once you get used to the clutch ( needs way more gas than other bikes), it's fine. I have heard there is a remapping fix out that fixes the stall issue.

AS to the cold start, it says right in the manual that in cold weather, open the throttle slightly.

I've been thinking: Mayby it's the noicy air cleaner/intake silencer that causes the stalling problem. When I tought my daughter to drive on a Kawasaki KDX (or KMX) 125, she used to stall a lot, until she started to use ear plugs. No more stalling after that.
