Hello Everyone. I was just giving a 2000 ZX9R that had 700 miles on it. I have driven it lightly for over 300 miles. The problem I am currently having is this, when releasing the clutch to drive, the bike JERKS, HESITATES and will DIE if I don't crankup the REVs. THe bike has a louder than what I believe to be normal sound coming from infront or around the engine housing. The sound is the exhaust sound but it seems louder than usual. Otherwise it drives fine once you get it rolling, but when I have to stop, I have to go thru this routine over and over. This is my first bike. Any help, suggestion, hints, tips and clues are most welcome. Thanks.
