Hi, I have bought a Burgman 400 k8, 2009. After riding other scooters, I find that you have to give this one quite a few more revs before the clutch engages and it starts to accelerate. Typically, the clutch starts to engage at about 3000rpm, which seems a bit high to me. There also seems to be a bit of low speed judder, but it's not bad. With all the clutch problems, recall issues etc, I was wondering whether this scooter might be affected, or is this normal i.e. 'the nature of the beast'. Any thoughts and/or experiences very welcome, many thanks. (Scooter is very low miles - 2K).
Well....first of all - ya gotta get the starting RPM up to about 3500 before the clutch starts to engage......!!! and second.........If the prior owner was silly enough to follow the break-in instructions........the clutch pads are most likely now glazed and need to be scrubbed down with emory cloth or sandpaper....

THAT should take care of the "judder" on starting out...........!!!
