Hello all.

I was hoping someone may be able to offer some advice. I have just bought a new bike. I had a 3 hour ride home from the dealer, when i went to start the bike the next day the fast idle would not kick in. It was difficult to start and would only do so if i manually opened the throttle. When i turn on the ignition, the bike primes as normal. When i switch off it makes an awful clicking noise. I have uploaded a vid on youtube at

Watch "GSXR K8 1000 Fast idle noise on ignition" on YouTube - GSXR K8 1000 Fast idle noise on ignition:

If anyone can offer any advice id much appreciate it.
