Hi, this forum is worth it's weight in gold! I wonder whether anyone has any bright ideas for my newest issue:2005 S40 Boulevard with just over 2,000 miles on it (bought two months ago.) I noticed that now that the weather is getting colder and wetter, my bike will cut out when I downshift. Scenario: I pull the choke, ride for about three miles or so according to the manual I found online, push chock back in and come up on a red light, school bus, what have you. When I brake and start to downshift...clutch, shift, ....engine cuts off. I thought at first that it was because my engine was still cold, but it does so after ten miles or so, when I assumed that the engine would be warm enough now. The bike will start right back up, because I will start it in whatever gear I am in, sometimes rolling at thirty-some MPH, and I simply find the magic spot between throttle and clutch, but it does not always work, and I am getting a tad worried. Do I not choke it long enough? Rider stupidity? Planned by Suzuki to make my life more interesting? Any ideas? Thanks as always.
