I am new to the 500's. I'll still ride my 450 untill it dies. However my buddy decided to upgrade tot he 500s. We went riding the other day and when he takes off the bike make this horrible griding untill he switches into second gear and the bike is moving pretty good. It does go away after the bike is moving. IF still and in gear and light throttle is giving it is almost like something is poping and grinding. Any ideas or common issues with these as I have to fix it for him.......he is no ace on the repairs part of the bikes. Thanks.
